A little Bit About Me.

Posted by Eric

Welcome to Forest City Firearms! First a little about me.

Since 2004, I have offered great prices on a wide variety of firearms, accessories and equipment from my location in Rockford, Illinois, just 12 miles from the Wisconsin state line. I run Forest City Firearms with my chief of security and best friend, my mastiff/German shepherd mix Boss.

I am a Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) gun dealer, member of the NRA, and certified both as a safety instructor and as a range officer. I also hold a dangerous weapons license from the city of Rockford. I also write a regular column, “Straight Shootin,’” on gun rights and firearms for The Rock River Times.

As a small operation, I am able to build close relationships with my customers and keep my prices lower than the competition, including big box retailers. With my lifetime of experience, I know firearms intimately, and I use that knowledge to help my customers find exactly what they are looking for or what they need for their gun.

I am a lifetime resident of Rockford – born and raised – so I’m very much a member of a community, and am happy to help you find that hard-to-get rifle or that must-have new pistol. Even though I’m in Rockford, I have nationwide relationships with gun dealers and firearm vendors, and can find almost any firearm.

Come down today, and find out more about Forest City Firearms.
