Newport gun store

Postby newportri » Wed Aug 16, 2017 2:22 am

Does anyone know when the new gun store in Newport (Connell Highway) will open? A while ago I heard it was some time later summer early fall, but I don't know what the status is.

The last I heard was sometime in August, pending some permitting/licensing processes. I've seen gradual external progress on the building renovation whenever I've driven past, although they've still got work to do.

My guess would be September-ish at the earliest, although I'd be very happy to be surprised.

I drove by this morning, I was tempted to peak in and see how the progress is going and introduce myself but thought they will get to know me well enough soon enough.

I stopped by today and the sign says it will open in August, but I don't think that will happen since it still looks like there is a lot of work to be done.

A&M Tactical just posted on FB that they'll be open as of 10 AM tomorrow, with a grand opening this Saturday from 10-6.

10 Coddington Highway, Middletown, near the VFW & the Coddington brewpub.

I stopped by after work. So far the selection is not greatest, but they just opened and I'm sure their inventory will only get better. Prices were pretty good on the few things I checked do that was good and I'll definitely be back. They will have a take for a 50 BMG on Saturday as well as some other prices.
I'm very happy there is another gun store on the island.

I'm not very familiar with Newport; do you have any ranges or gun clubs with shooting venues?

Newport Rifle Club is the oldest gun club in the country I believe.
