Tell me about your gun shop? Swamp Yankee Firearms is a small, family-owned business located in "the small city with a big heart": Milford, CT. We are an online-only gun shop with the exception of pistol permit courses and FFL transfers which are done by appointment only. Our goal is to offer our customers the largest selection of firearms at the best price on the internet. We accomplish this by keeping operating costs low and not having physical inventory. The overhead costs of a brick-and-mortar gun shop such as rent, payroll and utilities does not translate to an online shop. All of our inventory is shipped directly from our network of warehouses accross the country so we do not have to purchase and keep physical inventory keeping costs to a minimum. We then pass these savings on to you, the consumer!

However, it can be best described as a Connecticut redneck. Swamp Yankees are charachterized as "salt of the earth" folk with good common sense, skilled with tools, clever speakers who reject modern trends, and typically hunt and fish. Generations later the name still holds true.
