We are a custom & special order rural gun shop aiming to met your shooting sports needs.

How is "PRACTACTS" pronunced? [prak-tiks]
Word Origin and History for practic [prak-tik] n.
late 14c., "a way of doing something, method; practice, custom, usage;" also "an applied science;" from Old French practique "practice, usage" (13c.) and directly from Medieval Latin practica "practice, practical knowledge," ultimately from Greek praktike "practical" (as opposed to "theoretical;" see practical ). From early 15c. as "practical aspect or application of something; practice as opposed to theory;" also, "knowledge of the practical aspect of something, practical experience."

Finding this definition was an anchor point in deciding on the company name. Becasue understanding therory is great, but knowing what works is better and that ties perfectly into our motto "...the cohesion of Practical & Tactical."

As a small Christian based business in the firearm industry we see the Cross as a reminder of the sacrifice made by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who died for our sins (John 3:16-21). The Cross used as the front sight in the logo is to remind us that if our target is heaven then we must remain focused on Jesus, because he is the only way (John 14:5-6). If you have any questions, I am always open to conversations about the Bible & Christ as my Savior. I am just sinner saved by grace and quite unworthy to judge, so please don't expect any finger pointing to be done on these topics. All finger pointing here is reserved for trigger awareness and the point shooting technique.

What does PRACTACTS do?
As a type 7 FFL Manufacturer / SOT, we are leagally permitted to buy, sell, build, manufacture or repair firearms and NFA/Class3 items.
Which means we can cover a wide range of your firearm & shooting sports requirements.

Custom Firearms
We currently have the capability & tooling to build custom AR platform uppers & lowers.

The number one reason why I began building my AR rifles is I have found after buying and customizing stock AR rifles is, I am left with a box of worthless parts that I can't sell because everyone else has a box just like it. The second reason is it allows me to select the individual components that best fit the purpose of the firearm and assemble them with continuous attention to detail not always found on assembly line guns.  If you would like an upper or lower built to your specifications let me know. I will help you sort through the multitude of options that are available to select from to suit your wants & needs.

Special Order Sales
It doesn't seem that long ago when a firearm model just came in one color and maybe a couple of different barrel lengths. Now there are some popular models with a dozen or more different variations. As a small shop, we do not have the inventory space to compete with large retailers and their selection of in stock firearms. However, this decision to not maintain a physical inventory of new firearms allows us to keep our cost down and utilize a virtual inventory through our suppliers. This strategy not only allows us to keep prices down, but also provides our customers with a wider selection to choose from. Shipping times may vary depending on the item, but 2-10 days is an average availability.

So if you are looking for a new firearm, let us know and we can provide you a quote.

Class3/NFA Sales
Suppressors, SBR, SBS, AOW & Machine Guns

Accessories & Upgrades
The list is almost endless for accessories and upgrades, but with our supplier connections we can find the options you want. Fitting & installation is available. For optics we also offer mounting, bore sighting, 100yrd paper zero and chronograph services.

Repair & Gunsmithing Services
If you have any firearms that are not working properly or need a good cleaning and reliability check, bring them in for an evaluation & estimate. 
There are many specialty tools required for some firearm repairs. Currently we are building up our collection of specialty jigs & tools as needed. To be honest and upfront, there could be some jobs that must be turned away due to not having the proper equipment at the current time. Other requests (i.e. bluing, checkering, engraving, parkerizing, etc.) may result in a referral to a company that specializes in that type of work. I like to explain this so you know I will only take work that can be performed correctly in our shop.

On The Range

We have private test fire range, but range is not open to the general public.

Customers demonstrating proper firearms handling, may (at our sole discretion) be invited to test their purchases on the range.

Range rules are pretty simple:

#1 Keep your finger off of the trigger until ready to fire.

#2 Don't put your finger in the trigger guard until ready to fire.

#3 Keep your finger pointed straight at the target until ready to fire.

#4 Maintain safe pointing direction at all times.

#5 All other common sense rules apply.

Other rule lists may have different orders of emphasis like the NRA who places it second & NSSF who doesn't mention it.

I place a very stong emphasis on keeping your finger away from the trigger until ready to fire. Why? Beause if you don't know (or follow) any of the other lists of rules, this 1 critcal rule can keep you from "accidentally" discharging a firearm when handling it.  So, regardless of how it is listed by others; on my range it is 1, 2 & 3 if you break them you will be asked to leave.

NRA Gun Safety Rules

The fundamental NRA rules for safe gun handling are:

1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.

This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.

2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.

When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.

3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition. If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.
