Default New Gun store In Simi Valley

Fort Courage Armory
1518-B Los Angeles Avenue
Simi Valley, CA 93065
805 526-6563

Thank god theres a new gun store in Simi Valley and its run by a group of great guys. The owner Tim is Offlist friendly he just doesnt have any lowers instock at this time but hopefully in the near future.Tim is a great and friendly guy with a decent selection of firearms in stock and the prices arent rediculous. He also has some reloading equipment for sale and some airsoft guns for the kids.

This store should be a great change for us in Simi Valley. Finally Gretas doesnt corner the market and i dont have to drive to the valley to get my gear. With any luck people will wise up and deal with a gunstore that wants our business and values its customers unlike Gretas.

I dont want to bag on gretas too much but when they call me a felon and tell me the DOJ will confiscate my CA legal AR cause they have a proposed amendment that the DOJ gave to them personally. I tend not to give that store my business nor can I recommend that anyone go there.

Greta's sucks - bag all you want.

Thanks for the heads-up on the new store.

If you guys have been to Greta's and have had to deal with there customer service wait till you go see Tim it is just the opposite. Not the selection that Gretas has but very few places do. Its all Gretas has going for themselves is the great selection. But the more we support Fort Courage the bigger he will get and the better selection.

So hurry up and head on down.

THANKS for the plug!!! It's much appreciated. Considering how long it took to get this venture off the ground, the kind words are music to my ears.

I'd like to invite everyone down to the shop to check us out and if you like what you see, tell your shooting friends about us. You all are my best advertising. As for my competition, I'll leave the comparisons to you. All I promise is to do whatever I can to meet your needs. Tell me what you want, and I'll try to get it for you at a reasonable price.

Sorry if this turned commercial.....

BTW, PM me for prices on those Kimbers...or anything else for that matter.

Just got back from Fort Courage, nice little shop. Some VERY nice pieces of history there; WW2 and Vietnam pieces. And they got the best ammo prices in town! I'm definetly going back there when I need ammo. Tim was really cool - very friendly guy.

YEAH , I will have to stop by this weekend. I could not stand the attitudes of Gretas workers. They would make fun of their customers if they didn't buy a gun every time I was there. It made me wonder what they were saying when I would stop by on a lunch break to check things out. Also glad to have a OLL friendly place a little closer to home.

Simi Valley is a little to far for me. Most of my brass comes from internet. AS THE RO WONT LET ME TOUCH THE BRASS AT ANGELES. So i have to pay for it. As far as primers and powder i buy locally from. Lock Stock and Barrel in Temple City Califonia. I prefer to buy from them just because of the service. Every time i go there is this old lady there. I forget her name but she is the greatest. she can tell you everything you want to know about shooting, reloading casting bullets. Everything. so i go there, its just like she says. If people stop coming and buy their stuff at other places she will have to close doors.

There shop has been in business for over 40 years she makes it a point to remind me everytime i go there.

Capt. Parmenter fell over his saddle out back. Ask for Sgt. O'Rourke (Tim).
