"LOVE this store and range. Exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable. The ranges include great tech, ventilation, and lighting. The training staff is superb (highly recommend Morgan)...great selection to shoot/rent if you want to try some new things...the shop has loads to choose from and pretty friendly. In all, we grabbed a membership, some gear, and a new pewpew for my son. Keep up the good work, guys!"

"I stopped by the new store last week for the first time and was very impressed! Huge selection of guns, ammo, and holsters. Went into the range side and WOW! The cleanest, nicest range I've ever been in! My wife and I were looking for information on the ranges, and training classes, and Cole, Bud, and Morgan, went out of their way to explain all of our options. They really made us feel welcome! My wife remarked later that you can really tell the difference when someone loves their job! We will definitely be back and are planning which classes to take."

"I normally don't post reviews, but felt that I should put this out there. First, I really like the new store, they have a great selection of guns, ammo, mags, and accessories. Second, the Range. Wow! Very modern, clean, an actual Safety person inside the range, and everyone I spoke with was super professional and courteous. My wife and I signed my Daughter up for a "First Shots" class to help her get familiar with pistols. She took the class last week and had nothing but good things to say about the instructor and the instruction! Bud, her instructor, made sure she understood everything and was comfortable firing a gun for the first time, she shot a full box of 9mm and cant wait to go back! I dont remember all the names but everyone we dealt with went above and beyond. Thanks Guys!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Online inventory and pricing is separate from in-store inventory. Not all items available online are available in-store. The majority of our online inventory is populated from an off site wharehouse and drop shipped.

After purchasing a gun from our site, simply contact your local FFL dealer and let them know you’d like to have a firearm shipped to them. They can email a copy of their FFL to info@theoutpostarmory.com – just make sure that they include your name and order number so we know who it’s for.

When's the best time to do this, and how do I do it?

Our Online Sales Department can be reached at (615) 867 6789 [x101] between the hours of 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday. You can also e-mail the Online Sales Department info@theoutpostarmory.com.

Once your firearm arrives at your FFL dealer, they’ll contact you. At this point, you can go there, complete your background check, and head home with your new firearm (Provided that your state does not have a waiting period on firearms).

Federal law states that we cannot ship a gun to your home, as background checks must be completed in your state of residence before you can pick up a gun.  Any gun store will have an FFL license, as well as many pawn shops and sporting goods stores.

Shipping Restrictions

Please see our Restrictions and Warnings to find out if we can ship a gun to an FFL dealer in your state

The Outpost Armory does not export ANY products, nor will we participate in a sale in which we suspect that the items may be going to another country.

Yes, but due to the many factors involved in taking in a used firearm, we will only do this if you personally bring your firearm in so that we can appraise it and determine if it's something we can re-sell.

Persons must be 21 years old to purchase a handgun, and 18 years old to purchase a long gun.

Please see our return policy section for information how to return an item to us. Cancelations and Returns are subject to a restocking fee once your payment has been processed.
