Since the start of the pandemic, there has been an increase in new gun owners. Our team at Shooters Depot believes it is incredibly important for gun owners, new and old, to be trained on the safe operation of their firearms. You may have learned basic firearm usage and safety from a friend or relative, but taking a class at Shooters Depot can be a great way to learn new information and refresh your knowledge that you may have picked up. Here are 4 reasons to take a firearm class at Shooters Depot:

  1. You can forget skills or safety knowledge over time. If you’re a new gun owner, a beginner’s class is a great way to help you learn the correct way to handle your new firearm. If you’ve learned from family, friends, or took a class a while ago, you might have forgotten different skills or knowledge that can help keep you safe. Again, a beginner’s class can help you brush up on your knowledge. 
  2. It’s not too late to learn something new. An old dog can learn new tricks, and taking an advanced class can help you learn something new, even if you are an expert at firearm control and safety. Laws and firearm techniques are constantly changing, so an advanced certification course can be the ideal way to make sure you’re staying on top of your firearm knowledge. 
  3. Practice makes perfect. An advanced firearm course can provide a time for you to practice in a safe, comfortable learning environment. A class can help build muscle memory so you will be so comfortable with your gun.
  4. Learn from an expert. All of our classes are taught by NRA-certified instructors, and our expert instructors can help you make little improvements in form, posture, and how to correctly clean your gun, all of which can make a big difference in your firearms use. 

Our team at Shooters Depot is proud to offer a variety of certification courses. We have training from Basic Pistol Certification all the way to Advanced Defense and Tactical Training. Register for a class today!

online store

2020 saw an intense rise in online shopping across the country. There were 18% more e-commerce sales in 2020 than in the previous year. You have most likely come in and see our brick-and-mortar store in Ringgold, right off of I-75, but did you know that you can flex those online shopping muscles at our ONLINE store?

Our online store is easy to use and offers a wide selection of firearms, handguns, rifles, safety gear, ammunition, accessories, targets, and more. You can make all your purchases without leaving your couch! If that’s not enough of a reason to check it out, here are 3 more reasons you should visit Shooters’ Depot online store:

  1. More Availability - If you’ve ever come into our brick and mortar store, you might not have found exactly what you’re looking for. The past year has made many firearms and accessories difficult for our team to order from suppliers. However, our online store had a much wider selection. So, if you don’t see it in-store, check out our online store!
  2. Easy Delivery - You don’t have to worry about having your handgun or ammunition left on your porch while you’re out of town, exposed to the elements; your order from the online store will be shipped directly to Shooters Depot and you can pick it up there!
  3. Better Deals - Our online store has the best deals! You can find less expensive items in the online store than many in-person stores.

Our online store is easy to navigate and has Featured Products, Popular Categories, and Sort by Brand to make your shopping experience great! We hope you will visit our store, purchase your new firearm, and then try it out on our shooting range!

2020 Gift Guide

November 25th, 2020

2020 has been quite a year - I think we can all agree on that. But Christmas is rapidly approaching, so we are all having to start planning out all gifts for all those in our life. However, our team at Shooters Depot is confident that no one on your list needs more stuff to clutter their homes. So this year, we encourage you to try something different; instead of more stuff, consider a certification class or shooting range membership. Here are a few ideas to get you started!

For the new firearm owner - Basic Pistol Certification Class.
This 2-hour course teaches the basic knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary for owning and operating a firearm safely. This course is designed for new gun owners, and this class will teach the rules for safe firearm handling, parts and operation, shooting fundamentals, loading and unloading, rules for the shooting range, and conceal and carry laws.

For the family who wants a 2021 activity together - Premier Family Membership.
If you have a family on your list that wants to spend more time together in 2021, a premier family membership to our shooting range is a great present. The membership includes unlimited shooting time at the range for the entire household. Members of the family 18 and up are welcome at the range during regular store hours, and children under 18 are welcome to come to the range when accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, making it a great option for any family that wants to spend more time together.

For the firearm owner who wants to learn more about safety with firearms - Advanced Defensive Shooting Certification Course
This 4-hour course is perfect for anyone interested in learning how to use their firearm for self-protection. This certification course will further their knowledge of handguns and shooting fundamentals, as well as cover the safety rules and proper procedures for grip, aim, and trigger pull. This training will also cover the concept of defensive focused shooting and provide an edge in a critical dynamic situation, making a great experience for anyone who wants to feel more comfortable with their gun.

For your friend who has every new gadget for their firearm, but needs more practice - Standard Shooting Range Membership.
A standard shooting range membership is perfect for individuals who want to practice their firearm skills with unlimited range visits. This will give guests 18 and up plenty of time to hone their skills.

For the person impossible to shop for.
If you can never find a good gift for the last person on your gift list, come by Shooters Depot and pick up a gift card that they can use on ammunition, a new firearm, safety and storage gear, classes, or range time.

We hope these will help you find a perfect gift for everyone on your list, but our team is happy to help find some other options for you. Give us a call at (706) 406-0300 so we can help you with all your Christmas shopping needs!
