Thunderbolt Guns: Mission 

 Thunderbolt Guns continues to specialize in defensive firearms and training. When Benelli and Beretta contacted us in 2011 we became the only locally owned and operated gun shop that deals factory direct with those companies. We have significantly expanded our product lines and we now stock several lines of quality sporting and hunting shotguns and offer training in the clay sports. Owning a firearm can be a hobby, a passion, or a way of life, but it should always be a rewarding experience. At Thunderbolt Guns, we cater both to the experienced gun owner as well as individuals just gaining an interest in firearms and self-defense. Our knowledgeable, experienced, and friendly staff will work to find the gun and the training that is uniquely suited for you.  Thunderbolt Guns offers small class size, open dialogue, free estimates on repairs, and straightforward, honest deals. Come to Thunderbolt Guns-you won't find a better place to buy a gun- WE GUARANTEE IT!
