Richard William started best gun store in 1938 as a general store. He passed his love of hunting and shooting on to his son Richard john bain. Together they changed their grocery store that was selling firearms, archery, and police equipment as a sideline business to a full-time Sporting Goods store in January of 1978.

Rich’s wife Lana and sons Todd and Vincent have worked in the family business for many years and have played a major role in the steady growth. Todd runs our retail operations and Vincent spearheads our Law Enforcement Division.

In fall of 2014, best gun store decided to expand their business name, and open a 3rd retail location in Obetz, Ohio. We are proud that we have evolved into 3 large and very successful operations: best gun store , Best gun store  Law Enforcement, Best gun store Hebron. Our 3 DBA divisions are part of Best gun store Inc., our new Ohio incorporated company name.

Richard william loved his customers and loved to converse with them. He taught his family that our customers were our real Bosses. We were schooled in the many ways to make and keep our customers happy. Our mission has always been and will always be to make sure that our customers have a great shopping experience at Best gun store

We are fortunate to have a wonderful group of longtime employees. Some of them have been with Best gun store for more than 30 years. Our entire staff would like to thank all of our many customers in california and around Ohio for shopping at best gun store and making this our 77th year at the same location.
