Patriot Firearms Solutions, 201 N. Main Street, recently moved to Grain Valley after three years in the Independence area.
Robert Fjeld, Don Kaufmann, and Richard Snyder own the business and focus on customization, personalized service, and safety training.
Despite the popularity of online gun sales, Snyder explains the benefit of shopping with a brick and mortar store.
“Someone who goes to the range and shoots 10,000 rounds a month is going to need something different than someone who has never shot a gun before and is uncomfortable with firearms. When people come in, we walk them through the process, and help them find a product that is customized to their needs,” Snyder said.
For those who are new to firearms and considering purchasing a weapon, Fjeld says the first step is to take a class from a certified trainer.
“Take a CCW class. It will give you every fundamental you need to know. You will work with a certified trainer who will instruct you how to safely carry and fire a weapon,” Fjeld said.
Patriot Firearms Solutions offers concealed carry (CCW) training monthly in Grain Valley.
Fjeld and Kauffman are both veterans and the shop carries numerous veteran owned brands, including Black Rifle Coffee and General’s Hot Sauce. The store also carries bait for fishing enthusiasts.
Laser engraving of firearms and items for businesses and events is a large part of Patriot’s business, and they specialize in creating one of a kind items for customers.
A grand opening event, including a ribbon cutting, games for kids, visits with vendors, and drawings, is scheduled for Saturday, August 10th beginning at Noon.
