Our Story

March 2011 Gun Store of a Different Caliber

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 in every encounter. If you are ever dissatisfied with your purchase at Last Resort Guns, please call (256) 774-5741 or email us.

September 2013 Our New Facility

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

January 2014 Grand Opening

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.

The Future Continued Service

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