    New Gun Store in Monroe

    Hey guys, my buddy Roberto just opened a new store in Monroe. Epic Firearms. http://www.epicfirearms.com/
    He is a very cool and knowledgeable guy and used to be a Manager at Wade's in Bellevue. So stop by if you get a chance.
    Tell him Trevor sent you.

    Just out of curiosity will this be a "full service" gun store? Guns for everyone, including hunters? Or will it be just another "Norpoint like" store with a few "tacticool" weapons on display, a dozen or so pistols in a counter, and a response of "I can order it for you" for just about everything else?

    I'm waiting for someone to open a store with a good selection of firearms IN STOCK along with a wide selection of cleaning supplies and accessories. Would be nice to see someone provide a good Reloading Section. So far the only stored I've found up North that stock wide selections of firearms, holsters, and reloading supplies are Kesselring's and Adventure Sports.

    I'm sure there are some stores farther South that fit the description of "Full Service" but for some reason they don't seem to exist North of the King/Snohomish line.

    Just wondering.

    This is in the same complex as the bar JR Phinickey's‎ by the looks of it.

    I too am curious how much he will keep in stock... Trevor any thought?

    I haven't actually been out there yet, but he's got some photos up on his facebook page.

    It looks to be a small-ish shop with a decent selection. I don't know if he has or plans on carrying reloading supplies. I know there is no range.

    @jbone, This is a different store.

    So I went into Epic Firearms today. I noticed someone from WAGuns stopped by too, cards were on display .

    Location/Hours:
    They are located immediately next door to JR Phinickeys Bar and are open Tue-Sat 11AM - 7PM.

    Staff:
    The staff was polite and interested in helping, one of which was the owner (other may have been co-owner/partner?). Both were males probably in there lower 30's.

    Firearms/Stock:
    They only had around 15 pistols 1/2 of which were used. The staff member said they are a little behind and are wanting to carry more in stock items, they are receiving new items every day. They did give me quotes on items to order, prices seem comparable. They have several hunting rifles, a couple "assault" rifles and a couple defensive shot guns. They have a good selection of knives and some axes. I was hoping they had some tactical flashlights but I did not see any. As far as holsters they carry blackhawk ($43), a leather holster (local?, $20 something) and a fabric holster ($15ish). Gun maintenance and cleaning supplies were rather light, only a couple sets to choose from but they did have oils/lubes and fabric squares. Gun safes and other misc items such as snap caps, targets and carrying cases.

    Ammo/Reload Supply:
    They have 1 multi-tierd double sided shelving (3' wide) full of ammo. I only looked at 9mm, prices are comparable to others in the area (lower sales tax in Monroe though). Reloaded FMJ ammo was $105 per 500 9mm (about $0.21 a round), new FMJ ammo was $12.99 per 50 9mm (about $0.26). This is not even close to my $0.16 a round I get from another source, but seems to be in line with other local shops. They do NOT have reload supplies and do not plan to.



    Overall, its nice to have a nice and local shop I can stop by incase I need something in a hurry or on the way up the mountian.

    Another great place is Skagit Arms in Burlington (Holiday Sports). And Skagit Arms is across the street from a McDonalds, that area has double the Anti's; Guns, and the Happy Meal phobia folks.
