    The Tradesmen has been serving Colorado since 1993. Known for our great prices, selection, and customer service, we help our customers buy, sell, trade, broker, and consign all types of firearms, equipment, and accessories including new, used, antique, and Class 3. We even offer a complete spectrum of firearms services, instruction, and training such as CCW & Concealed Weapons Permit classes, Basic Firearms Safety, advanced self-defense and personal protection courses, even professional consulting, estate management, and family auctions.  Thank you for letting us help you.


     No one sells guns for less. Not Walmart, not any store, not any website anywhere.  Period.  Pre-paid cash orders are only $10 over cost. We also sell quality used equipment still in excellent condition with full warranty. You can even use our FFL (license) for on-line internet sales and transfers. (Click HERE for more info.) Consider trading in your firearms, or, sell them here on consignment for a flat rate of $50. We also have various law enforcement, military, government, and estate discounts and special offers.

     Our customer service is why everyone recommends us. We patiently and politely listen to your needs and wishes, and then help select the training and equipment that best suits your needs.  Buying a firearm involves great amounts of time, money, and responsibility and we want to help you make the best choice for you and your family. Our customers return to us again and again because of our friendly service, our vast experience, and because we make the process simple.

     We provide an entire spectrum of firearm education and training. From taking time here in our store to show you how different firearms work (their advantages and disadvantages, their suitability for self-defense and/or recreation, their cost and quality) to offering a full line of public and private firearms safety and personal defense classes that include: Introduction, Basic, Concealed Weapon Permit, and Advanced Tactical and Defensive Handgun, Rifle, and Shotgun courses. We even have shooter-preparation classes for IDPA, Action Pistol, and 3-Gun Competitions. We also offer Glock and AR-15 Armorers courses and other classes in basic handgun, shotgun, and rifle takedown, disassembly, service, and repair.

      From beginner to advanced... children to champions... We'll make you safer, better, faster! Let us work with you as an individual, family, group, or organization.  Childcare and babysitting options (along with other aids and helps) are available for those with special needs. Then, we include a vast network of support organizations and informational resources that help you keep your knowledge, abilities, and equipment at their best. With more than twenty years of actual field-experience in military, law enforcement, civilian, and hunting firearms and training, we are the only area organization that offers this level of service.

      Our promise? To help you get the equipment and knowledge you need. So, if we don't have it in stock, let’s work together to find a place that does. Sometimes, getting your gear "right now" is more important than saving money, and, we'll help you by calling other stores and checking inventory and prices so you know your options. We understand some gun stores might be frustrating because of high prices or poor customer service, but we will give you product codes and price-matching quotes to take to them so you know you are getting the right gear at the right price.  Remember, as American gun-owners, we need to stay positive and work together... supporting one another as much as possible.

     Come visit our store and see why our customers are always so happy. We really do have the friendliest customer service, the lowest prices, and the best advice, products, and training. Give us the opportunity to help you get the answers and equipment you need.

      We thank you for supporting our small, family-owned business.
