About Last Resort Guns

Last Resort Guns set out in March of 2011 with the goal of being a gun store of a different caliber. Our philosophy is simple: identify every customer's unique needs and ensure those needs are satisfied through sales, special orders, or just good honest advice. Making a sale is not the most important objective at Last Resort Guns, pleasing every customer is our only important goal. We teach our employees to go above and beyond in customer service on every encounter. If you are ever dissatisfied with purchase at Last Resort Guns, please call (256.774.5741) or email us.

In April of 2012, we opened our first store and quickly became Madison's premier location for firearms and related accessories. With this store open, we began planning our custom built facility to better serve our community.

Our current, custom built, state of the art facility is the culmination of years of planning and preparation. We moved in during September of 2013. From the ground up, this facility was designed to provide Madison with the best firearms, range, accessories, and training classes in one location.

On Friday, 31 January, Last Resort Guns celebrated the Grand Opening of our current facility. We were honored with the presence of Alabama State Senator Bill Holtzclaw and Madison Mayor Troy Trulock. Click here for pictures of the ceremonial ribbon shooting and grand opening.

We are excited at what the future holds for Last Resort Guns, and we hope to continue evolving to better serve our customers.
