The GlockStore to Host Fourth Annual Open House Celebrating the Company’s Move to Nashville

Lenny Magill

Lenny Magill, founder and CEO of the GlockStore, said the store’s fourth annual open house event will be held this Saturday to celebrate the company’s move from San Diego, California, to the Volunteer State.

“Our open house is this Saturday at 10 a.m. This is our fourth year of celebrating the move from California to Nashville. We love Nashville. At the event this weekend, we’ll have two shooting competitions. We’ve got a lot of fun. Excellent prices on guns. Gun prices that you never see again. They’re super low. Of course, all of our parts and pieces that we manufacture here in Nashville are going to be on sale as well. We’ve got free ice cream. We’ve got food trucks. We’ve got the shooting competitions, which I said, which is a low light competition and a speed competition and we are going to be raffling off a full fledged Glock 17 custom gun,” Magill said on Wednesday’s edition of The Michael Patrick Leahy Show.

The GlockStore, which relocated to Nashville in 2021, includes a retail showroom, the company’s manufacturing operations, a warehouse, and the store’s unique Shoot270 indoor shooting range.

The store also hosts firearm training classes, group classes, and community events.

“We made the big move from California just like a lot of other people and this will be our fourth year coming up on June 1st, this Saturday. We’ve got a grand event that’s really celebrating our escape from California,” Magill said.

“It’s not just a gun shop. We have manufacturing there. We’ve got our warehouse there. Most of our sales are on the internet,, but at the retail showroom, we really just raise the bar dramatically. It’s a beautiful showroom. We’ve got just high ceilings and beautiful displays, lots of guns, and of course, all the Glocks that you could ever imagine. Then we have our Shoot270 shoot rooms,” Magill added.

Magill said the GlockStore’s Shoot270 private shooting rooms are ideal for first-time shooters and shooters seeking a range with more to offer than traditional lane shooting.

“You shoot in these combat rooms, which gives you the ability to shoot at multiple targets in multiple directions. It gives you the privacy that a lot of our customers want. They don’t want to shoot in a lane with people that they don’t know who they are. They want to shoot in private and they want to learn in private. That’s really what we’re all about – teaching people how to shoot so they’re safer, they’re faster, they’re more professional, they’re more competent, more confident that they can operate the gun,” Magill explained.

“It’s not only great for the first timer, it’s great for anybody who wants to shoot and learn and not be distracted by all the other noise and all the other people and all the other things that happen at a traditional lane range. Not to mention the fact you’re shooting at one static target, you can’t shoot too fast, you can’t draw from holsters, you can’t use lights and lasers – all of which you can do at the Shoot270 experience,” Magill added.

Regarding the store’s overall move from California to Tennessee, Magill said the business has been “well received” by Nashville.

“We’ve been well received by Nashville. What’s really interesting is people come into the store and say, ‘Yeah, I used to go to the San Diego store.’ I’ve heard that 20 or 30 times and they’ve moved to Tennessee and they’re coming over here to see us. It’s really great. We really love it. We’ve got a great audience. Nashville is a great town. Taxes are non-existent as far as business,” Magill said.

Magill also addressed the uptick in gun sales across the nation, explaining how people are “concerned” with the current state of affairs in the country and want to be “prepared.”

“Certainly, people are concerned. There’s a lot of weird stuff happening with the border and, of course, the inflation, and there’s an election cycle coming up and we don’t know what kind of tricks the Democrats will pull to try to skew the election or to throw it off kilter. Something’s going to happen. So people have a feeling, I believe, that, ‘Hey, let me be prepared.’ Obviously, you can’t rely on the police, nothing against the police. It’s just that there’s not enough of them,” Magill explained.

“You’ve got a very short window to be able to stop a crime or to save your own life. So we do see a lot of men, a lot of women who are first time gun buyers. Not only do they want to buy a gun, they also want to learn to train. They want to learn to shoot, so that’s really important. You need to learn how to operate that tool just as if it was a power saw, you want to be able to operate the controls and be able to shoot it proficiently and accurately and safely. So we do all that at our shop,” Magill added.
