On April 6th Dixie Triggers and Eden Gun Works temporarily suspended operations due to the spike in new COVID-19 cases. After careful consideration we have decided to keep the shop in a suspended status one more week.

Starting Tuesday, April 21st we are planning to return to by appointment only. We will be giving priority to those customers that had business with us interrupted by the temporary suspension.

Please remember that appointments must be made in advance and will only be made for customers with real business. Customers are expected to practice good personal hygiene as directed by the CDC, and may be subject to screening at the shop.

Dixie Triggers and Eden Gun Works reserve the right to close at any time, or cancel any pending appointments, should we feel that the safety of us, our families, or the community require this.

We hope and pray everyone stays safe. If you have any questions please feel free to email or call or text the shop phone at 912-754-1587.

Updated Tuesday, April 14th.

The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) is the system implemented by the Brady Act that Federally Licensed Firearms dealers use to run the background checks on firearms purchases. This system is run by the FBI. Over the past few years the number of checks run through this system has increased to the point where single events can cause problems.

With the COVID-19 outbreak causing shelter in place orders around the country, and the spike in firearms purchases in response, it has been difficult for Dixie Triggers to run background checks in a timely fashion. We have been unable to contact NICS in several cases, and have had to schedule follow-up appointments on a later day to complete the transaction.

Dixie Triggers, as a Federally licensed dealer, is required to follow the law as listed in the Brady Act. We have no control over the management or operations of FBI NICS.

Dixie Triggers strongly encourages all customers get their Georgia Weapons Carry License (WCL). (Unfortunately at this time all new WCL applications cannot be made as the Probate Courts that issue such licenses are closed due to the virus.) We are allowed to bypass the background check requirement for customers with a valid Georgia WCL. If we need to run a background check please understand that it may take days or weeks to complete the sale or transfer.

Dixie Triggers will be running special hours around Christmas and New Years to allow us time to spend with our families.

Regular hours of 9am to 4pm Tuesdays and Thursdays up to Thursday, December 19th.

Tuesday, December 24th and Thursday December 26th we will be closed in observance of Christmas. Tuesday December 31st we will be closed in observance of New Years Day. Appointments will be limited between December 20th and January 1st.

Many of our customers have special needs around the holidays with gifts and other items coming through the shop. We are willing to make efforts in accommodation. Please contact Dixie Triggers as early as possible if you would like to schedule an appointment between December 19th and January 1st.

Dixie Triggers will resume regular business hours January 2nd.

Merry Christmas to all our customers and their families!

and Dixie Triggers offers gift certificates. We stand ready to help our customers with any help they need as folks look for gifts to give. Contact the shop for more information.

The shop will be closed so we can spend time with our families the week of Christmas, and our availability for appointments will be limited between Christmas and New Years.
