Creedmoor Armory Grand Opening
Creedmoor Armory held its official grand opening for its newest location in Anniston on Saturday. More than 500 people showed up for the ceremony along with members of the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce. And, Ronald Lee Ermey, an actor who is best known for his role as the harsh Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket was also there to sign autographs and take pictures with the crowd. Creedmoor Sports has been in Anniston since April of last year at McClellan with a small retail store. That location will continue to be their manufacturing facility. The new store located on McClellan Boulevard in Anniston will be the gun store. Creedmoor Sports president Greg Kontorovich, says Creedmoor Armory is not your typical gun store. It is not set up like a surplus store. He says the staff is looking forward to serving its new and its longtime customers, since more than 80 percent of their customers come from the Southeast. The store has national champions on staff which includes distinguished shooters. And, all of the staff are certified FBI instructors. Creedmoor Armory’s operating hours are Monday through Friday from 10:00AM until 7:00PM and on Saturdays from 9:00AM until 5:00PM.
