Welcome to Hiwassee Firearms

Hiwassee Firearms (Formerly Fugate Firearms) is your hometown Firearm Store, Range, and Training Center. We plead the second, say our prayers, and love to sling lead just like you.

We take pride in assisting you before, during, and after the sale. We don’t look at our customers as a dollar sign, but a relationship. Our goal isn’t to up-sell you into our most expensive item. Our goal is to fit your needs and allow you to better hunt, target shoot, or protect yourself and your family.

The proof is in the pudding, with hundreds of satisfied customers who have attended our handgun classes or made a purchase at our store. We don’t have to tell you how great we are, we let our guests tell that for us.

In a day and age where owning a gun is becoming more taboo we set out to educate and bring new shooters and seasoned veterans alike together. We understand that purchasing your next firearm or your first is a big deal, we ensure it is treated that way.

Before you run to the big box stores, give us a call or pay us a visit. Here, it is all about you!
