At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, I decided to get my wife a CC pistol of her own and to her liking being that... she already possessed a CCW permit. The staff member, David, graciously gave us his undivided attention for what lasted 90 minutes of examining numerous pistols before finalizing our decision. We never felt rushed throughout the whole process. We never felt prodded or goaded by David in our selection. He worked FOR us, answering our questions and listening to my wife's concerns about fit, form, and function. Tar River Arms is a one-of-a-kind gun shop you do not see much of in the era of big box stores and national chains. Their prices are reasonable, their staff is courteous and knowledgeable, and the facility is clean and welcoming.I have become a patron of Tar River Arms and will continue to support their business.read more

Made my first visit and a great purchase this week at TRA. I have know Kurt and his family for years and am so happy to... see Kurt finally living his dream! The shop is very well staffed (Hi Herbie!) with competent and pleasant folks. They have an ever changing selection of quality products at competitive prices. If you go there (and you should) they are in back of the veterinary clinic on the lower level ... take the drive on the left and down the hill. Enjoy!read more

I live in Wake Forest and saw Tar River Arms had a new store. I brought my wife in there as she’s been looking for... her first pistol. The staff was wonderful. They were friendly, informative, and sensitive to a new shooter with smaller hands. We have been to a couple of shops and ranges, to look around and to let her get comfortable with different pistols. Tar River Arms was the best experience. We have been back a couple of times, all with the same experience. I recently made a purchase for myself and that experience was just as comfortable, and professional. Their prices are competitive, and their stock was a good mix of new pistols and rifles, with some used items, and accessories. I look forward to my next purchase from them.read more

I went to Tar River Arms for my first pistol, gave them my reasons for wanting what I wanted, and they couldn't find... any reason to talk me out of it. A great experience, really nice guys working there, and when I left my folder of information behind, they kept it safe for me until I could get back to pick it up. That's how you get & keep customers, folks. I will be spending more money there soon.read more

Tar River Arms is simply the best. Kurt is a Marine veteran. He and his staff know their product inside and out, and... they are all about educating the public in addition to selling their product. Their inventory is unsurpassed, their store is beautiful, and if Kurt doesn't have it, he will find it for you! Don't go anywhere else!read more

Guys did a great job listening to what I was looking for in a pistol. I though I’d like a Glock 19, they showed me... that and also a CZ p10c. The CZ was cheaper and felt better in hand, so I got it. Having shot it with friends, everyone said it is a great gun. Glad I came here instead of a box store, way better experience.read more

ONLINE SALES ARE ON POINT!!!I first became aware of Tar River Arms through their YouTube page, Kurt does a fantastic... job creating content and updated topics for discussion as well as current stock and incoming product. You can really tell that they genuinely care for the company and the customers. Very knowledgeable staff and SUPER FAST communication. They don't wait and they get things done right for the customer. I ordered online from out of state and it was clear and to the point even for a first time buyer of firearms online. I talked to one other gentleman on the phone and he was beyond kind. Great experience overall! Will definitely order again.read more

Went into buy a pistol. The staff was kind, knowledgeable, and just all around excellent. The environment is also clean... and welcoming. You get look around and don’t feel pushed into any purchase. The price was reasonable and the overall experience was excellent. Tar River Arms is easily the best place to buy firearms in the area. I can not recommend them more!!read more

When no one else in the area could find the specific gun I was after, Tar River Arms came through for me and located... one, brought it in and had it ready for me to pick up in just a few days. These guys are awesome and go above & beyond for their customers to make sure they get exactly what they want. I could not be happier and look forward to doing business with them again in the near future.read more

Got a chance to visit their store today and it was a breath of fresh air. Their selection of firearms is absolutely... second to none when it comes to QUALITY. Their service was outstanding and their negotiating and pricing absolutely FAIR! They’re a smaller place but mighty, consider giving them a visit and supporting local shops like this.read more
