Colorado Springs Guns & Ammo is excited to announce the opening of its brand new location in Falcon. The locally owned and operated guns and ammo store carries a variety of handguns, rifles, long guns, shotguns, pistols, lower receivers and an array of accessories for all modification needs. The shop covers all basic calibers for pistols and long guns, with many older calibers available as well. Whether for recreation or sport, Colorado Springs Guns & Ammo has got you covered. The new location is double the size of the current store, and at more than 4,000 square feet is intended to be a one-stop shop. The square footage plays a huge factor in carrying a heavier amount of inventory, ensuring that visitors can get exactly what they want, with custom ordering available.
Falcon is a rapidly growing neighborhood with many new developments. The area has some of the highest expenditures for hunting and fishing annually, so there was a need for this type of specialized store in Eastern El Paso County. Having Colorado Springs Guns & Ammo at arm’s reach affords residents access to a wide product range and localized expertise. With Rocky Mountain Roosters and other popular hunting destinations nearby, hunters can now equip themselves without driving nearly an hour for the ideal firearm.
What sets this shop apart from big box shops and other retailers is their commitment to customer service. “I treat people the way I want to be treated, and this philosophy is reflected in the business as a whole,” says Victor Batchelder, General Manager. “There are many shops that do not care. I’ve been to other shops where employees are not friendly and do not take the time to get to know you.” Colorado Springs Guns & Ammo staffs military veterans and hunters with extensive expertise and product knowledge, who provide some of the best individualized attention in the industry. In addition, all of the personnel do not work off of commission, which means they will listen closely to each and every client’s needs and find the ideal product, rather than pushing a sale of a sometimes arbitrary firearm for the sake of commission. The company also offers a 10 to 18 percent military, police and Fireman Smith and Wesson discount.
Being a military town, many clients go in knowing exactly what they want, but many others are looking to learn more or even start out. “That’s such a cool experience for first time buyers choosing us,” says Batchelder. “We are adamant about imparting thorough knowledge to our clients, from the breakdown, laws, and just the fundamentals and basic knowledge of the firearm.” The shop also offers Concealed Carry Permit classes, which is a three to four hour course that goes over basic pistol and firearm safety. “The classes teach firearm owners how to carry the firearm and how to carry themselves with the firearm, as well as laws about where they can carry the firearm,” says Batchelder. This is all essential, as different laws are held in every state.
Women are becoming increasingly interested in owning firearms as well. 58 percent of woman are hunters and 95 percent have tried target shooting. Additionally, 66 percent of women between 18 and 34 are new shooters. With a locally-owned shop nearby, individuals can receive the guidance and training necessary to fully embrace each product. While hunters will typically travel up to 35 miles for the right firearm, residents in Falcon and Eastern Colorado Springs will not have to thanks to Colorado Springs Guns & Ammo East.
