Montana’s Top Tactical Shop – Locally Owned & Operated
Ted’s unbridled appreciation of guns of all kinds has been evident since early childhood and throughout life where it continues today. The mission of Empire Arms is to offer an atmosphere where anyone from the novice gun owner to the experienced shooter can feel comfortable.
We want to help arm, outfit and educate anyone who is interested in all aspects of firearm ownership and to give back to our community as well as promote and share our love of firearms and shooting sports through affordable guns and gear with fantastic customer service. Through Empire Arms and Ammunition, we can turn our passion for firearms, freedom and love for America into our day to day life. As they say, if you do what you love, it won’t feel like work!
Like you, we love our Country, God, family and our community. We strive to build a successful business to pass onto our children, and to build a legacy with these core beliefs and principles and to give back to and be a positive influence for our community.
