D&R Gunsmithing and Sales in Goose Creek Does Its Business Inside Out!

Husband and wife team, Diana and Rich Rogers, opened D&R Gunsmithing and Sales to fill in missing service in our area, gunsmithing.  They offer gunsmithing services, sale of handguns, rifles both new and your consignments.  They further offer training classes in various fields.  Their main emphasis is on gunsmithing allowing them to be the one true gunsmith shop in the area.

From the first step in the shop, the open floor plan allows the customer to see what goes on when guns get worked on.  Most shops have their gunsmith tucked away or in the back room.  At D&R Gunsmithing and Sales, they have a small showroom but they make up for it with great service.  Their motto, “It’s not just the tools, it’s the service!” is shown first hand each day. They keep a low inventory of new handguns which are able to be used with the concealed weapon permit.  Due to the low inventory they are able to offer these handguns at affordable prices.  They take handguns, rifles and shotguns on consignment.  They also are able to order in a vast array of weapons and parts.  Ordering guns from distributors allows D&R Gunsmithing and Sales the ability to have the lower over head cost to carry over to the affordable pricing for the customer.  They are further committed to providing great customer service to everyone entering their shop.

Goose Creek is the perfect location for D&R Gunsmithing and Sales to plant its roots, with no other gunsmithing shops in the area.  Located at 124 St. James Ave, Suite A1 (route 176), they are tucked in the Kings Plaza shopping center.  Diana and Rich think that the sheer number of people driving by their store has helped generate a lot of their business.  Also, word of mouth has helped increase business exponentially thanks to great customers.  The shop opened its doors in late 2011 and they quickly outgrew their original space of 560 sq. ft.  In September 2012, they moved into their shop, in the same plaza, offering them 1300 sq ft of space.  They now are able to have a training room on site to offer Concealed Weapons Permit classes, Basic Handgun Safety, NRA’s Refuse to be a Victim, Situational Awareness, Women’s Self Defense, First Aid and CPR and more.  At the start of 2013, D&R Gunsmithing and Sales will also offer a more varied menu of classes and activities.

D&R Gunsmithing and Sales also believes strongly in the community in which they are a part of and growing strong together.  They are hosting food drives for Helping Hands of Goose Creek, a pet adoption fair with Doc Williams SPCA and more to come in the new year.  They want you to feel comfortable enough to come in for cleanings, engravings, paint work, parts and fixing a variety of things you need.  They want you to be able to come in and look at what they have to offer at any point or even just to grab a cup of coffee and get to know them.  You can also find them on Facebook, LinkedIn and other various internet sites, including their own website of www.d-and-r-gunsmithing.com.

Reach out to D&R Gunsmithing and Sales for all your gun and rifle needs.  You can get in touch with Diana and Rich at their shop or rich@d-and-r-gunsmithing.com and diana@d-and-r-gunsmithing.com.
