The Smoking Gun in Colonial Heights is about 10-15 minutes from Chester. It is small but inexpensive and family friendly. They have military and first responder discounts and, unlike others in the area, they don't gouge you on ammo and targets.

I really like them because one of the operators is a female ex-cop - she is really nice to my 13 y/o daughter who is learning to shoot smile

There are a couple of good gun shops in Chesterfield within 10-15 minutes of Chester.


If you're into tactical stuff, Town Gun on Hull St. and Southern Police Equipment on Midlothian are good. I personally refer SPE: they have good deals on LE trade-in guns, and FFL transfers are inexpensive and quick. TG has a good selection of Ammo.

If you're a hunter, check out Bob's on Hull St. It is about 2 blocks from town gun. They do have some good deals on pistols, but they seem to focus more on hunting and fishing.
