If you’ve been in the store lately you’ve probably heard the latest news about our NEW LOCATION coming soon! If you haven’t, well I’m glad you are here reading this update. I’ll start from the beginning, not the very beginning (as in I’ll skip a few), but enough of the beginning that you will be in the know.
We’ve wanted to expand and make our shop even better for our community, our friends, and our family, but have wanted to stay close to our current location. Then, just like that we found a place that is about 10x the operating space of our current shop, and have been daydreaming of what we could make it into. We secured the space and the build out is almost complete. We will be in the new location by April 30, 2017! The goal is to have a Grand Re-Opening in early May, so be on the look-out for events, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter updates.
A little sneak peek into what’s coming:
Lounge Area (Think couch, chairs, TV, snacks, drinks, books, friends, maybe even a dinosaur)
Gun Cleaning Bar – Yes a BAR for cleaning guns (plus we’ll host events to teach and train newbies)
Local Business Events – (holsters, ear protection, LTC, and more)
Training Space – (for rent and hosting)
When we set out to open a community gun shop we had a plan to be available to the working professional that needed access to evening hours. Our goal was that we could serve our community through education, training, and competitive prices. We also wanted to provide a welcoming environment where everyone felt like family. Since our opening August 29, 2015 we have been asked what is next. We’ve been asked about being open more hours, about employment, and about longevity. We have built a family, a network, and a need to be open MORE hours.
It is with great excitement that we announce our first (next) step into growing the Saddle Rock Armory family. Along with our newly extended hours we will be expanding our training opportunities. Watch the Events page for more information on upcoming training and events.

Last year we were looking for a compact, easily concealed 9mm. We chose the XDS and received the special magazine deal from Springfield Armory. We have enjoyed the XDS and are very excited to see that Springfield Armory is at it again! What’s EVEN better is this special is for any pistol purchased between September 1 – December 31.
We have IN STOCK:
It’s been an exciting month, seeing all these weeks of work start to payoff as the pieces of a new, small business continue to come together. Each day new folks are checking in – having heard of SRA through a friend, the storefront or social media. And we are beginning to look forward to some of our new “regulars” that swing in just to say hi.
I’ve also enjoyed getting back into some of my familiar, old favorites and meeting people who share those interests as well. While all sorts of new, “regular stocking inventory” arrives weekly, watch for more special interest items to arrive with increasing frequency. Things like a full range of Benelli shotguns (from tactical to competition and sporting variants), additional H&K items from yesteryear such as more P7 series pistols, classically cool Smiths (at least to me) including the big 3rd gen autoloaders in .45 and 10mm, as well as full under lug 629s. Competition long slides and the supporting targets, belts, holsters, timers and gear to let people experience a whole new level of recreational firearm use. Action pistol competitive shooting will forever change the way you think about range time. Of course, there will be Browning Hi Powers of different vintages, styles and colors. And what gunshop is complete without a falling block 45/70?
We appreciate everyone’s positive comments and product suggestions. We’ve already moved swiftly to stock some of the things we initially missed, but our customers need such as .17HMR and fuel for the 5.7x28mm FNs. Thanks for your input, and look for some additional information coming soon about our October get-to-know-us event, a micro 9 review and whether the ‘Wall of Fun’ would look better with a new AUG…
We started this journey about four months ago. Well, to be honest – it’s been years in the making, and here we are. Saddle Rock Armory opened for business on August 29, 2015 to friends and immediate family. We’ve also enjoyed local law enforcement stopping in, as well as our work family. The opening weekend brought visitors from the North Austin and Round Rock areas, and we are excited to serve even more folks in our surrounding neighborhoods.
Opening a gun shop for us was a surprise to many. The surprise was not due to a lack of firearm knowledge or interest in competitive shooting, but because we both have day jobs. Many wondered where we’d find the time while working full time, family, flying and everything else that life sends to us all. This consideration is our very mission. We want to be a gun shop for the working professional; those who can’t get away during the normal 9-5. Our hours seem unusual until viewed through that lens – see more in the About Us section or stop on by on your way home from work!.
Inline with this desire to serve the working professional, we will have a strong online presence with detailed listings of our firearm inventory – both new and used. This way a quick check of our mobile friendly site can secure your item for pick up later. We will also feature reviews of our new arrivals and for events that we attend or host. You too, can submit product reviews or requests for reviews through the Contact Us form.
Thanks to those who made this past weekend a memorable first chapter in what we hope to be a long and interesting book.
We’ve been working hard getting everything in order and are excited to open our doors and launch our full service website. Shelves are constructed, the paint is dry and the signs are going up – stay tuned and be sure to visit us on Facebook or twitter for updates as well!
