Perry's Gun Shop Original Store ImagePerry’s Gun Shop was founded in the heart of downtown Wendell, North Carolina in the corner of Perry’s Inc. in 1981. The hardware store was approaching it’s 100th anniversary when the boys wanted to try something a little different than what Dad’s been doing.

Since then we have been working hard to bring North Carolina top quality service, the top brands, and always the best prices in outdoor gear to you! Three generations of Perrys are easy to find on the store floor to help you find just the right firearm, gun safe, or accessory to make you and your family safe and secure or ready for the next hunting trip. We pride ourselves in having a knowledgeable and experienced staff always ready and willing to help you find the proper fit for you and your needs. Our 20,000 square foot store is nationally recognized by top manufacturers like Browning, Winchester, Beretta, Benelli, Smith & Wesson, Glock, Liberty Safes, Remington, H&K, and over 100 other brands. Although we have fifth generation customers, we are always ambitiously looking for new friends and clientele to bring to Wendell to experience our style of hometown hospitality.
