Piasa Armory as founded in 2012 with the mission of providing firearms education and a customer-focused firearm retailer to the Alton area. Originally housed in the basement and dining room of the owner, Piasa Armory moved to the first retail location at 115 Market St in Alton in November of 2013. The store moved to a more suitable location around the corner at 13 E Broadway in 2015. In 2016, Piasa Armory found their current home in a former car dealership at 3685 E Broadway. After much blood, sweat, tears, luck, and help from countless friends, family, and supporters, the indoor range opened in June 2017. Piasa Armory remains the only public indoor shooting range in the Alton Riverbend. Through the continued support of our customers, we continue to grow and expand our services and further our mission to create a culture of responsible firearm ownership.
