Shoot Responsibly

Palmetto State Armory does not condone unnecessary or excessive force, or illegal acts of aggression.

We want to help you stay safe, legal, and prepared as you exercise your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

The right to keep and bear arms, to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and the innocent and vulnerable in our communities deserves to be steadfastly protected. We believe that education on local laws, procedures, and proper use of our firearms is a key and vital component of defending those rights.

As firearm owners, we pride ourselves on accepting the added responsibility that comes along with gun ownership.

We know that safety and security are paramount principles. That's why we are gun owners in the first place.

WE AT PALMETTO STATE ARMORY PROMOTE FREEDOM AND THE SAFE AND LEGAL USAGE OF OUR PRODUCTS BY LAW ABIDING CITIZENS. THE PRODUCTS WE SELL ARE NOT TO BE USED WITH UNNECESSARY OR EXCESSIVE FORCE, OR ILLEGAL ACTS OF AGGRESSION.

Firearms ownership is rising at a rapid rate.

We are seeing the largest number of background check submissions to the FBI than ever before.

The background checks from May 2020 are nearly double the numbers from 2011 (1,534,414 in November 2011 and 3,091,455 in May 2020). That's about 103,000 background checks PER DAY in the month of May.

Our retail stores are seeing an exponential increase in foot traffic, and the new shooters in the crowd would be hard to miss simply because they are the majority. Uncertain times tend to make owning the best form of self-defense you can find a really good idea.

Please visit this page often for new articles and videos that we hope can help us all learn to shoot responsibly.
