About Us

Black Widow Arms is a Class 3 Licensed Firearm Dealer located in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. We were born out of a need for a specialized dealer here in the Valley. We provide firearm solutions, accessories and specialized ammunition for a wide variety of specific situations including Tactical, Personal Protection inside and outside the Home, Concealed Carry and Training Services. We are also licensed to handle specialized weapon sales to Military and Law Enforcement. We are NRA Certified Pistol Instructors and Dealers of Historic NFA Firearms.

We have a strong belief that the United States of America is unique because of the freedoms guaranteed by our Constitution. A Constitution that provides freedom from abuse by those in authority. No other country on the planet, in less than 300 years, has had such a list of fantastic achievements as our representative republic. This is due mainly to the creative genius that flowed out primarily from the freedom and prosperity that the American Founding Fathers unleashed by removing the tyranny of an oppressive government.

It is our liberty and guaranteed rights that have permitted ordinary people to achieve extraordinary things! Our Liberty and Rights are precious things that those who are born into it, tend to take for granted since it is all they have ever known.

There is a push by many to convince us that our Constitution is outdated and there is a better, more progressive way to do things. We here at Black Widow Arms strongly disagree. We understand that with Liberty comes responsibility and that anyone who says "the American Constitution is obsolete just because social and economic conditions have changed does not understand the real genius of the Constitution. It was designed to control something which HAS NOT CHANGED AND WILL NOT CHANGE - NAMELY, HUMAN NATURE."

We understand this at Black Widow Arms and strive to educate and motivate Americans to peacefully get involved, stand up and help secure those freedoms for future generations.

"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be." - Thomas Jefferson, letter to Chas. Yancy, 1816.
