In rare cases, our Bob’s Gun Shop online price may be slightly higher for a particular item than in the Bob’s Gun Shop Retail Store due to various agreements with our vendor partners.

You will always find more products available whenever you visit our retail store in Virginia than you will find on our web site. In some cases, our vendor partners prohibit us from selling their products on the Internet. Also, it is just not practical or possible to represent each and every one of our 100,000-plus items on the Internet. Products are being added to our site every day, so please check back often or call our retail store at 757-627-8311 for the latest in selection and availability.

We hope you enjoy your online shopping experience.
