Jones & Jones, the place to go for guns

I love guns. I don’t try to hide it at all, and I encourage others to purchase firearms all the time.

I get that quality firearms can be pricey, but often you get what you pay for. If I spent a little bit more to buy a firearm from a reputable manufacturer, I know that it comes with their guarantee. In the off chance something does go wrong, they’ll make it right.

The same can be said about a gunsmith. If I need or want some gunsmithing done, I want to go to the best.

Jones and Jones, firearms dealer in nearby Somerton, Ariz. is veteran-owned and operated business, both of the Jones’ are retired military officers, and Mike Jones is the only certified master gunsmith in Yuma County.

I’ve seen and handled a lot of weapons over the years, and some of Mike’s creations are among the finest. If something goes wrong with one of my weapons, he’ll be my first stop.

On top of being masters of their craft, Mike and Margie Jones have to be some of the nicest people on the face of the planet. We’ve had some lengthy conversations out there, and they’re always a blast to be with.

While their in-stock selection of firearms isn’t as large as other gun shops, they can find and order just about anything and have some of the greatest prices you’ll find.

If you need a gun, and everyone does, or you need one of your guns worked on or customized, go see Mike and Margie, you won’t regret it.
