A Message from Dick, Founder and Owner of Thunderbolt Guns

As a long-time gun enthusiast, I like to think I know what gun owners expect from their local gun shop. I opened Thunderbolt Guns in order to provide area residents and visitors with a reliable, accurate and friendly source for information pertaining to firearms and firearms training. 
My staff and I strive to deliver the best service and products available. Judging by our reviews, I am pleased to state that we are accomplishing those goals.

Owning a firearm for self-defense is both a citizen’s most fundamental right and one of the most serious responsibilities you will ever undertake. Before you decide whether or not to purchase a firearm for self-defense and the protection of your loved ones, you should accept the responsibility to be properly trained by a certified professional.

Come on down and visit Thunderbolt Guns at 3021 East Victory Drive in Thunderbolt. You will find competitive prices, a clean store, and the most reliable, dependable customer service in the area... I GUARANTEE IT!


It is the mission of THUNDERBOLT GUNS, LLC. to provide you, the customer, with a personalized sales experience in a welcoming and safe environment; to provide the best training possible in order to enhance an individual's ability to defend themselves and their family.

American Gunsmithing Institute

The American Gunsmithing Institute is the premier source for how-to gunsmithing courses on DVD. American Gunsmithing Institute exists to provide firearm enthusiasts with the knowledge needed to keep their guns in safe and top-notch condition, maximizing their shooting experience and potential in a way that preserves the gunsmithing art and ensures “that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
Georgia Carry

GeorgiaCarry.org was incorporated on February 9, 2007 and from the beginning, we have fought against the powerful interests who seek to burden the exercise of our Second Amendment rights. Our first action was to sue Georgia’s Probate Judges to force them to follow the law. We sued them to force them to issue licenses within a certain time frame as opposed to issuing them when they so desired. We also took them to court to remove their requirement of applicants to supply their Social Security numbers and employment information in order to obtain a license. Next, we took on cities and counties to force them to repeal their local gun bans, in violation of Georgia’s Preemption Law (OCGA 16-11-173).

Our mission is to provide the highest-quality products and best customer service to shooters, sportsmen, military and law enforcement alike, and do this at a fair and competitive price. It is our goal to create lifelong relationships with our customers who believe in our ideas and the quality of our products. We invite our customers to provide feedback through direct contact by phone or email.
