Back in 1979, Ross Payne and his wife Christine had an idea for a business, but they were novices and they weren’t sure if they had the right stuff to make it in the retail business.
They decided to give it a go, though. Not knowing exactly what to expect, they opened Ross Coin and Guns named after Mr. Ross Payne. Now, more than 30 years later, the business is stronger and more dynamic than ever and the whole family is glad they took that leap of faith so many years ago.
Ross Coin & Gun is Currently owned and operated by Ross’s two sons Paul and Reed. You can be certain that the two brothers who grew up in the business are no novices. They’re experts on guns, ammunition, fishing supplies, and just about anything that’s related to hunting and fishing. They’ve also had plenty of time to amass quite the inventory of goods, gear, and equipment. They stock as many as 1,800 firearms at any given time — both new and used. There’s something to fit every budget and interest. Have an old gun you’re looking to trade in and upgrade? You’ve found the place: Ross Coin and Guns!
