What's Wrong With This Picture?

All of us here at Thunderbolt Guns want you to know it is our passion to provide you with the best service and training within the area.

We believe that all those who wish to be responsibly armed citizens should be informed, trained citizens with access to accurate, up to date information and training. We will gladly answer your questions, and guide you through the process of completing your firearm purchases and then train you in the proper use of those firearms, whether at the gun range or when you are carrying a firearm for self-defense.

We can also repair your firearms, if it ever becomes necessary, and can instruct you in the proper care and cleaning of each firearm you own.

Owning a firearm for self-defense is both a citizen’s most fundamental right and one of the most serious responsibilities you will ever undertake. Before you decide whether or not to obtain a firearm for home defense and the protection of your loved ones, or to carry a firearm outside the home for self-defense, accept that part of your responsibility is to be properly trained by a certified professional. We can train you!

It is the responsibility of the transferring FFL to notify you that your item has been shipped, it is NOT the responsibility of Thunderbolt Guns, LLC.


  • Great job last night!... Most of [the girls] had very little knowledge, if any, of the use of firearms and got a lot out of the program.

  • So often you see someone doing a job just to make a buck... that was not at all the case. Your methods, patience, professionalism, knowledge, experience and courtesy make the class a great experience.
    Russ Monid
  • It's one thing to know a subject but it's something else to be able to pass that knowledge on to others... you have the unique ability to teach other in a way that is not only educational but interesting and fun.

  • They've got a really nice selection of Benelli shotguns on hand as well, and I've never met a gobbler who likes a Benelli shotgun...
    Marty Fischer
  • Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks? I learned a lot, and in spite of previous military training some years back.
    J.P. Martin

Are You Prepared?

Reaction time is key in any life-or-death situation. Being effective at drawing and using a weapon can be the difference between protecting loved ones or a lifetime of regret. Just owning a firearm is a weighty responsibility, but efficiency doesn’t come from ownership. Familiarity comes from training. Accuracy and then speed are offspring of repetitious, PERFECT practice.

Proper Sight Alignment And Sight Picture

The major keys to aiming and consistent target hits are to properly align your sights, get the proper sight picture, and keep the properly aligned sights on target with little movement at the precise time the hammer falls. This is so very easy to say, but so very difficult and challenging to accomplish. This is especially true in the "heat of the battle" or when under time constraints for quick shots.

7 Reasons Women Struggle With Firearms Training

It’s no secret that male and female brains differ in key ways. Generally speaking, men have spatial relationships, which means they can easily understand multiple shapes within a given space. Women have verbal relationships, which suggests that women use different strategies for spatial visualization tasks, namely through conversation.

7 Tips For First-Time Handgun Buyers

Handguns are one of the most flexible and portable platforms available to the modern shooter. But with the vast number of options available, ranging from tiny pocket pistols to massive hunting revolvers, choosing the first one can be intimidating for someone new to the sport. Here are a few tips to help save you time, money and frustration when making a first-time handgun purchase.

Senior Citizens And Handguns

As a senior citizen, when you go to purchase your first defensive handgun for concealed carry, you may find yourself feeling nervous, confused, or "out of your element" at the gun shop. If this is what you experience, join the club! We've all been there and done that! After all, you've experienced a lot of things in your life, but this is a new experience for you.

Why We've Had An Ammunition Shortage

Trying to explain why there has been a prolonged shortage of ammunition is like attempting to understand why people line up at stores in anticipation of Nike launching its latest basketball shoe or Apple its latest iPhone. A run on a product—or in this case an entire category of products—is the result of a perfect storm of factors.

On Sheep, Wolves And Sheepdogs

Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always,even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for?
