Gunther Guns — filling a need responsibly

Nearing the first anniversary of Gunther Guns in Carlsbad, husband and wife Gregg and Lisa Gunther are thrilled at having the opportunity to fill this important need in their community.

And being the sole Carlsbad store where people can purchase firearms, Gunther Guns has become the go-to-spot for locals. But with that comes a sense of responsibility, too, which Lisa described as a “very detail-oriented paper driven business.”

“We are heavily regulated by the state and the federal government,” she said.

“No one,” she added, “can purchase a firearm without passing a thorough background check. We sell firearms to responsible law abiding citizens – it can be no other way.”

And it’s not just gun enthusiasts that are coming through their doors, but also your average citizen. “It’s the people you do business with — doctors, lawyers, business owners, your neighbors,” Lisa said.

“It’s been wonderful meeting and making friends with so many nice local folks — helping them sell their used firearms or purchase a new one is a responsibility we take very seriously.

Women shooters are the fastest growing segment in the gun industry and quite frankly, it’s about time. There are many self defense products available to women at Gunther Guns including pepper spray, tasers and handguns. A carefully chosen handgun is the ultimate equalizer for every woman and all women should be prepared to defend themselves against potential harm. Our store is set-up with women shooters in mind. Local gals can stop by anytime to discuss their security needs in a clean well organized friendly environment.

“In California, you cannot purchase or sell a firearm from an individual. All firearm purchases and sales must be completed by a Federal Firearms Licensee such as Gunther Guns.

Gunther Guns is a family-owned business located on Loker Avenue West, which is the only firearms store in Carlsbad. Lisa and Gregg carry new handguns, shotguns, rifles, ammunition and accessories including holsters and cleaning kits. Customer can also dispose of old ammunition at their facility.

Gunther Guns will be marking their first anniversary, which comes at the end of August, with a drawing for their customers to enter to win $500 worth of merchandise. For more details and to enter the drawing visit Gunther Guns now through Sept. 30.

Gunther Guns is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. They’re located at 2717 Loker Ave. West Suite B in Carlsbad. Visit or call (760) 444-1100.
