ROCKINGHAM — Scott Taunton, his wife Josie and daughter Gaby welcomed Richmond County Chamber of Commerce and local officials to their new tactical supply business Thursday as they cut the ceremonial red ribbon to officially open the store.
Scott’s Tactical Supply, 214 N. Long Drive, buys and sells firearms and provides products for shooting sports, gear, guns, ammo and hunting supplies. The shop also offers gunsmith services.
Taunton is a state-certified concealed-carry handgun instructor and NRA-certified pistol instructor and is currently working on scheduling monthly classes.
“We share a passion for all things guns and gear,” said Taunton. “We have a wide variety of products and keep as many guns, parts and ammunition on hand as possible, so that we can ship them to your front door or have you pick them up from a licensed FFL dealer.”
Taunton said he was trying to bring the online feeling to an actual business, but those looking for firearms or related items can still search the shop’s online catalog that includes more than 16,000 products to choose from at www.scottstactical.com.
Scott’s Tactical Supply is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
