SIDNEY — In 2015, Adam Christian, Laura Christian and Gloria Verdier opened M. V. Arms, a gun store that caters to gun enthusiasts from the first-time gun owner to the more serious collectors.
“Hunters, shooters and people interested in self- defense are sure to find a wide range of guns and all accessories at an affordable price. M. V. Arms knowledgeable associates will help guide you in deciding the best gun for your needs,” said Adam Christian.
His report continues:
A little history of how M. V. Arms came to be. Mark Verdier, Gloria’s late husband, was a real gun enthusiasts. He collected everything from hand gun, rifles, and even class 3’s. He did unsmithing, built 34 muzzleloaders, reloaded ammo, and loved every minute of it. After Mark passed away Jan. 2014, that is when Adam, Laura, and Gloria decided to open a gun store in his honor. He always wanted to do a gun store but didn’t want to do the paperwork.
M. V. Arms had its grand opening Oct. 9-11 with a free gun give away. We also had a tailgating party on the 10th during the Ohio State game with TAMM 105.5. People came from all over and are so glad there is a gun store in Sidney. We made it a family event by having friends and family come to help with the tailgating party and talking to the customers.
To honor Veterans Day was special for the store. Shortly after opening that day, seven Navy men and women came into the store. It was very exciting to see them and honor them. A donation jar and 50 percent of the store proceeds went to the VFW. We honor all the vets young and not so young. We love you all for what you have done for our country. We feel that people have the right to keep and bear arms to defend themselves.
M. V. Arms had an amazing opening and the rest of 2015 was awesome. Thank you for helping support your local gun store. We are looking forward to an exciting 2016 with great promotions, helping the community, giveaways, and helping gun enthusiasts.
