“Giving people the right
advice about safety and
security for their family
and friends is my passion!”
Mtn Range Armory was founded in 2004 by Aaron Torres. It began with Aaron’s dream of not only working for himself but, to work in the industry that he absolutely supports and loves. He began by acquiring his federal firearms license and a few inventory items and from there he took his business to the gun shows along the front range with much success.
He did this while working full time as the Area Manager for The Ready Mixed Concrete Company and Boral construction Materials. Toward the end of 2015, Aaron ended his twenty-year career with Boral, to pursue his new-found venture full time.
The original idea encompassed a firing range, firearm, and ammunition sales, along with safety training and gunsmithing. Unfortunately, the correct building along with the correct zoning was not available while researching properties. He considers himself lucky that he found the building in his hometown that the Mtn Range Armory currently occupies.
The new location is not set up for shooting as it is right next to the light rail station; however, it is perfect for networking, firearm sales, training, and gunsmithing. The firing range will be part of his business eventually, as the shop grows.
Aaron and his family have resided in Arvada since 1999 and would frequent the old town neighborhood shops in order to support small business in his community.
