We have heard from many of you that gun shops have been deemed essential businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks for reaching out on this, we appreciate the support!
We received word this morning, from a State Official that gun shops in Massachusetts are classified as "non-essential" and must close per Governor Baker's order on shuttering businesses.
Your 2nd Amendment rights are being trampled with this shallow thinking. Protection of one's life and liberty is indeed essential but apparenly not in the eyes of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
We highly encourage you to contact Governor Baker's office and express your opinion on this matter and let him know how you feel about your rights being stripped from you.

We will be open on Saturday from 11:00 - 4:00 with limited amounts of people allowed in the shop at any one time.
Between 10:00am and 11:00am, we will be taking phone orders at (508) 867-6800. Placing an order over the phone and paying for it with your credit card will get you priority entry in to shop. Essentially, you’ll be able to “cut the line” to pick up your gun. This does not mean you’ll be able to just walk in when you arrive, but will mean that you are “next”.
Tombstone Trading Company will be closed March 24th through April 7th per Governor Baker's order to close all non-essential businesses.
We have filed for "essential" status with the State and are waiting to hear if we can open. As soon as we can, we will post that here on our website as well as all of our social media channels.
Not THAT President. It's me, Dave Bourdeau, President of Tombstone Trading Company, Inc. As I relax at home for the first time in over a week, I think of things that I should have said but have not.
Everyone's lives have been affected this past week by the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Toilet paper is out of stock. Hand sanitizer, gloves, masks, etc... all gone. People have been flocking to the store that are open in an attempt to procure these items. The other items they want?
Guns and ammo.
To say it's been a busy week at Tombstone Trading Company might be the biggest understatement of 2020.
With the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, Americans across the country have rush to their local gun stores to purchase firearms and ammunition at unprecedented rates. To meet the local demand in Massachusetts, we have taken steps to our operations to keep our staff safe as well as the public that comes into our shop.
This is a transcript of a press release that Tombstone Trading Company released in regards to our response to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Everything we are doing and will do is intended to keep our employees and customers safe and healthy. We also need to bear in mind guidelines put in place by the Commonwealth of MA and the CDC to protect the health of everyone involved.
With those points in mind, we are instituting the following action plans here at Tombstone Trading Company:
Tombstone Trading Company is a Class 3 firearms dealer, which means we can sell everything from blackpower firearms all the way up to fully-automatic machine guns.
Recently, we took the Cobray M11/Nine 9mm sub-machinegun out to the range and put it through it's paces.
This Cobray M11 is capable of shooting up to 1200 rounds per minute, and as you can see in the video, it doesn't take long to empty a 32 round magazine!
For several months, we've been selling the Mossberg 500 and 590A1 Compact Cruisers and the question we continually get asked is "Have you shot it? Does it have a lot of kick?"
Well, there was only one way to find out, so it was off to the range.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BROOKFIELD, MA, January 25, 2017
Tombstone Trading Company, Inc. is excited to announce the expansion of their 1 Main Street location in Brookfield, Massachusetts.
Long known as one of the premier gun shops in Massachusetts, the goal of the expansion is to increase not only the size of the retail sales floor but also to expand into additional product lines and services.
Tombstone Trading Company, Inc. has announced that they are now a state and federally licensed bonded warehouse, offering secure firearm, ammunition and accessories storage for police departments, law firms and individuals.
We've been teasing for a few weeks that something new was coming and we're finally ready to announce it.
Starting today, we are now expanding our training classes to not only deal with firearms licensing, but also additional classes that cover a wider range of gun and personal safety topics. We plan on adding new courses on a regular basis, but we're starting out with four new classes that we feel cover some very important basics.
Like most gun shops and gun owners in Massachusetts, we were surprised to hear that Attorney General, Maura Healy, made a unilateral decision to re-interpret the 22 year old Massachusetts Assault Weapon Ban, particularly the definition of what a "copy" or "duplicate" of those weapons are.
This directive came with no notice and, according to our sources in the Mass Legislature, no consultation with the Representatives that create the laws of the Commonwealth. A complete end-run around the system.
