The A.W. Peterson Gun Shop opened in 1886 in Denver, Colorado. In 1954 the business packed up it’s Colorado location and moved it to Mount Dora, Florida. It’s been here ever since!

The wooden interior with a full array of hunting and shooting supplies gives any visitor the feeling of stepping into a shop in the 1800s. Besides supplies, fire arm classes are taught.

In the back is a historic exhibit of A.W. Peterson’s guns, equipment and photographs. The exhibit alone is worth the stop even if you aren’t in need of supplies.
