Did you know it is a federal felony for and individual to sell, or give a firearm or ammunition to a convicted felon and the penalty is 10 years in prison for each count for each gun.

Call us at 775 741 0735 anytime. Really we mean anytime! Who knows how long we will be able to keep our guns.

Proper Firearm Grip:

It's all in the hands. The hands are the part of the body that interact most directly with a handgun. And how the gun reacts to its own recoil depends on how the shooter grips it. If you do not have the proper grip or stance, most smaller semi autos can misfire. Let us help you find the proper grip and stance for you. Everyone is different. Body Mechanics are different for everyone. You don't purchase clothes or cars with out trying them out. Your protective firearm is no different. What is good for the goose is not always good for the gander. .

Reason for high capacity mags and semi autos.

Defensive firearms are meant to be “equalizers,” force multipliers that can allow one good person to defend against multiple evil people. To allow one good person to defend against a single evil person so much stronger and/or bigger and/or more violent than he or she, that the attacker’s potentially lethal assault can be stopped. History shows that it often takes many gunshots to stop even a single determined aggressor. More to the story
