January 25, 2017 - General News, Press 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.

"When I came on-board with the company in August of 2016, one of my main responsibility was to grow the business. This expansion is not only a result of those efforts but also allows us to continue to head in a direction that provides our customers with a wide selection of both new and used firearms as well as a significant expansion of our accessory lines." said Jason Turcotte, Shop Manager.

David Bourdeau, President of Tombstone Trading Company said "It has been an exciting time in our business over the last 12 months and we want to continue to position ourselves as one of the largest and friendliest gun shops in Massachusetts. This physical expansion is just one of our plans for 2017. Just wait until you see what's coming!"

Remodeling will take 2-3 weeks and the business will be open during the majority of it. "We will be closed the week of January 29th, but that's a week we would be closed anyways as we have back-to-back guns shows. When we have those back-to-back shows, we typically close for the week in-between. This gives us a great opportunity to get a lot of the noisy part of the remodel done while we're closed." Turcotte said.

Tombstone Trading Company Now Offering Secure Firearm Storage Services

October 13, 2016 - Firearms Law, General News

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.

"In offering this new service to the community, we strive to offer police departments and private parties the highest levels of service and great customer service." said David Bourdeau, President of Tombstone Trading Company.

A bonded warehouse operates under Massachusetts General Law Chapter 140, Section 129D and is authorized to secure and store firearms, ammunition and accessories on behalf of law enforcement agencies as well as private individuals. This removes loss or damage liability from police departments and provides private individuals the confidence that they know their firearms are being stored safety and securely.

Tombstone Trading Company Offering New Firearm and Personal Safety Classes

August 22, 2016 - General News, New Products

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.

New Shooter Series

If you're new to firearms, or simply "getting back into it", our New Shooter Series is designed to cover the basics of several key areas of firearm ownership. There is no requirement to actually be "new" to the sport of firearms, just a willingness to learn! These classes include:

  • Firearms Cleaning 101
  • Abstracts of Massachusetts Firearms Law
  • Shooting Fundamentals

Refuse To Be A Victim

The single most important step toward ensuring your own safety is having a personal safety strategy in place before you need it. The Refuse To Be A Victim® program teaches the tips and techniques you need to be alerted to dangerous situations and to avoid becoming a victim of crime.

Seminars are open to men and women of all ages and certified Refuse To Be A Victim Instructor, Jason Turcotte, will take participants through several key topics in this 4 hour seminar.

Head over and learn more about and sign-up for these classses.

Massachusetts Attorney General Bans So Called “Assault Weapons” and Their Copies

July 22, 2016 - Firearms Law, Gun Control

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.

In an article published in the Springfield Republican and shown on the website, Tombstone Trading Company owner David Bourdeau said "The conversation's premature until we get a notice and see how it's written by the state."

We have spent the better part of this morning reviewing the directive by the Attorney General and believe we have an understanding of what semi-automatic rifles and shotguns we can and cannot sell, from this date forward. We are working diligently to get those items in stock and suggest you follow us on our Facebook page for the latest "up to the minute" updates.

Action Needed By All Firearm Owners

This is a time for all firearm owners to band together and take action. Even if you don't feel that there is a need for an "assault rifle", this is only the first step they will likely take in an attempt to ban all semi-automatic rifles and shotguns.

You need to take the time to contact your State Representative as well as the Governor's Office. You can find a list of State Representatives on the Mass Legislature website, which we've linked below.

Members of the House of Representatives

Write, call and email your Representative and the Governor today to help preserve your 2nd Amendment rights and get this overreaching directive eliminated.
