Ann Arbor Arms is a radically new concept in firearms and personal defense — a gun shop that is clean, professional, and welcoming. Whether you're looking for a handgun, rifle, a firearms accessory, or that specialized item for home defense like a taser or pepper spray, Ann Arbor Arms is happy to help you find it. Not sure of the exact difference between a pistol, handgun or revolver? We're happy to help educate you. Are you an expert shooter seeking a hard-to-find gun part or a mil-spec AR-15? Stop in and talk to us — if we don't know the answer, we'll find it ... or maybe even learn it from you!
There are plenty of places where you can shop for rifles, shotguns and revolvers, but we focus on tactical and personal defense firearms, so we pay attention to the needs of those who carry concealed weapons (pistols, pepper spray, or tasers) or carry firearms at work. We try hard to be a place where men and women, beginners, casual shooters, experts and law enforcement personnel alike can come and be treated with respect.
If you're new to the world of shooting and self-defense weapons, you may find all the equipment and terminology a little intimidating. We understand! We love the tactical shooting sports and we're passionate about home and personal protection, but we didn't start out as experts. If you've dared to go into a gun shop in the Ann Arbor area, or anywhere in Southeast Michigan, you may have noticed that not all firearms dealers welcome beginners. We do! Let us know if you're just starting out, and we'll help guide you to resources and equipment that make sense for your ability level.
Who says women don't like guns? We've found that once you cut through the macho image of the hunter or military sniper many women love the challenges of shooting well. And it should be no surprise that, when it comes to personal protection, the empowerment that comes along with being able to carry a concealed weapon and use it well is something that women understand and relate to. Not sure of the difference between a Remington, Glock, Ruger, Smith & Wesson, and a Colt? Not sure whether it makes more sense for you to carry a taser (which some people misspell "tazer"), pepper spray, or a concealed carry pistol? We can help, and we'll get you started in a way that makes sense for you.
Maybe you're a casual shooter, and you own a couple of pistols, a shotgun, or a target rifle. Do you appreciate guns and consider yourself more than just a beginner? Do you want a professional shop that can help you learn how to take care of your firearms, get you hard-to-find gun parts, or locate shooting courses for you? If that describes you, then Ann Arbor Arms is the gun store for you. We think Southeast Michigan is full of men and women who understand and respect firearms yet aren't fanatical about them. If your among them, stop in and let us know. We'd love to meet you!
We've been surprised by how many avid shooters there are in the greater Ann Arbor area. We've met a lot of men and women who not only collect firearms, but make it a point to practice on a regular basis. Some of these folks are target shooters, some are tactical shooters, and many of them are just enthusiastic gun owners who are passionate about self-defense or personal protection. Some are very accomplished firearms experts. Whatever your needs, let us know. We'd love to hear your views on the latest Glock or Colt pistol, help you build your next AR-15, or find that obscure gun part that you need to finish your latest project.
With so much uncertainty in the economy and with so many natural and man-made disasters occurring on an almost daily basis, it's no surprise that a lot of folks who live in Ann Arbor and Southeast Michigan believe in self-sufficiency. You can see some extreme examples of "preppers" and survivalists on tv, but even if you think some people go too far, you may still believe that it's better to be prepared for an emergency than to be a victim of dangerous circumstances. We enjoy helping our customers be prepared, not only for natural disasters, but for first aid emergencies, survival situations, extreme adventure settings, and any other time when self-sufficiency is called for. Check out what we offer in first aid kits, food storage, emergency response tools, and survival kits.
