From the desk of Our Founder

I come from a family of hunters, farmers, and proud members of the military so I was exposed to guns at an early age. My father taught me how to safely hold, shoot, and take care of my gun.

In my 20s, I moved away from using guns but as I entered my 40s the hunting spirit was reawakened and I began purchasing firearms again.

There’s a popular gun store in Houston, in fact it’s branded as “The Largest Gun Store in Houston“. It’s where I spent over $20K last year in premium quality weapons. One Saturday I bought a Winchester Model 70 Alaskan for hunting, which had only been fired about five times. Since I wasn’t using the gun I figured I’d sell it back for a good price. Informally, I was accused of stealing the gun even though I purchased it from the store and was in their POS (point of sale) database. When I voiced my frustration at their accusation, they offered me a very insulting price for the gun.

After this experience, I vowed to never buy a gun from them again.

As I shared this story with friends and colleagues, they indicated they’d have a similar experience.Some expressed outrage at the obvious to race, class, gender, overtones in their buying experience.

This is how EMP Arms was born.

I wanted to create a gun buying experience that made the average person and especially black people feel comfortable. I know from experience that gun stores can be very intimidating and inhospitable and it is my goal to create something different for my customers.

Welcome to different!
