Walking into a new gun shop is one of my favorite things to do.
The Gun Shoppe of Sarasota, which is located at 4402 S. Tamiami Trail, certainly didn’t disappoint.
It’s owned by my friend Joe Krawtschenko, formerly of Aegis Tactical.
While the Grand Opening is planned for Oct. 13, the shop is open for business right now. The website is coming soon.
Like at Aegis, Joe will showcase high-end 1911s from Fusion Firearms, and much, much more. There are choices for hunters, tactical shooters and plenty of knives and EDC gear.
His sales staff, whom he calls “consultants,” are chock-full of firearms expertise.
“We’re not just here to sell you a gun,” Joe said. “We’re here to fit you with the right gun.”
Hours are 10 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday, and 9 am to 5 pm on weekends.
