Tanner's Sports Center was founded by Ray Tanner in 1992. Ray set out to offer a wide selection of high quality firearms at an affordable price. But more than the great products, Tanner’s focused on delivering a signature customer experience that served gun experts, enthusiasts and anyone new to the firearms lifestyle. 

Over time, gun inventory grew from hundreds to thousands of new and used rifles, pistols, shotguns, black powder guns, and accessories. Tanner’s Sport Center became the premier sports center with the largest selection of guns in the entire tri-state area. Tanner’s relationships with the top gun manufacture grew as well and soon just about any firearm available on the market could be ordered and available at the store within 72 hours. 


Additionally, Tanner’s became regarded as one of the best places to trade-in used guns. Because of Tanner’s success and notoriety, used gun sellers across the nation have trusted Tanner’s to offer the best process and prices. That means all manner of rare, unusual, and exotic guns found their way to Tanner’s every day. Loyal customers began to line up each morning to see what new guns made their way to the store. 

Thanks for trusting Tanners these many years. We remain committed to making Tanners Sport Center the gun lovers destination store for many years to come!
