Thank you for choosing to shoot and shop here—our entire team appreciates it. For those of you who’ve gone elsewhere in the past, you can probably relate to my story.
It was 2012, and I was getting tired of being mistreated at the local gun shop and range. Stores were dirty, dark and disorganized. Their staff seemed more interested in “testing” my firearm knowledge than providing any customer service, with an attitude more condescending than educational. The whole process felt intimidating.
Why wasn’t buying or shooting a gun enjoyable like every other retail experience? What happened to “the customer is always right”? Sharing my experiences with others, I learned they were the norm in this industry. There just wasn’t a good venue for my fellow 50 million Mainstream Gun Enthusiasts. After two particularly bad shopping experiences one Saturday morning in February 2012, I had enough. There had to be a better way!
I was 51 years old, with no retail experience—just a strong belief that a common-sense approach in this segment of the firearms industry would be refreshing and welcomed. Despite the risks, I cashed in my 401k and savings, secured an SBA loan, and opened our first Shoot Point Blank location in Cincinnati, Ohio that November. The profits from that first year were put right back into the next one, and the rest is history.
At Shoot Point Blank we’re committed to treating you right every time we have the opportunity. The loyalty of our customer base and the diligence of our associates have been the keys to our success. Our attitude is different than the rest and it shows.
I hope you fulfill the experience you came for, and I personally want to thank you for your business. I want your journey to Living Confidently to start with Shoot Point Blank.
