About Us

Backwater Guns was opened in June 2009 by gun enthusiasts. We are family-owned and operated, and our mission is to arm and educate others so that they can protect themselves and love the sport of shooting as much as we do. We are Southeastern North Carolina’s largest gun shop, and we carry everything from handguns to top-of- the line precision rifles. It is our mission to help you find the perfect weapon for your needs. We will educate you and guide you so that your shopping experience is exceptional.

Not only do we offer a huge selection of firearms, but we are here to outfit you with ammunition, cleaning supplies, cases, safes, and tactical accessories and gear. We are a full service gun shop and offer sales, cleaning services with our hydro-sonic cleaning system, and dealer transfers. If you choose to purchase a gun from another location and need to transfer it in, well be glad to help you with the transfer. 

Here at Backwater Guns, we know guns and love them, so stop by and check us out. We can’t wait to meet you and serve your needs.
