Port City Pistol - Muskegon, Michigan Gun Store and Indoor Firearm Range

Welcome to Port City Pistol!

Ladies, think back to the last time you were in a gunshop... Was it an enjoyable experience... or was there a gruff, un-helpful employee behind the counter who either ignored you or treated you like a child? Are you tired of being talked down to, or refered to as "little lady"? Then stop by Port City Pistol where the sarcasm is left to our letters to Congress, not directed towards you!


We're commited to providing a woman and family friendly environment, without the foul language or caustic behavior so common in the firearms industry. It's our mission to treat you with respect and answer all of your questions with the utmost professionalism.

We're here to help!


Port City Pistol understands the issues faced by women shooters, both in recreation/competition shooting, and in self-defense.


We can size a handgun, or long gun stock, to properly fit you, and we also understand that the vast majority of holsters on the market will not work for women's anatomy. However, there are options available, and our courteous staff can help with the proper recommendations.


So stop by today and leave with a smile!


Interested in a Michigan Concealed Pistol License (CPL)?

Port City Pistol offers women only CPL/CCW classes at least once a month.

A non-refundable $25, deposit will be required to sign up for classes. REMINDER: The range will be closed on class days! Eight hours of class time is required, including three hours of range instruction.

DO NOT bring any firearms or ammunition to class; they will be provided. Cost for the class is $100.00 and must be pre-paid.

Michigan mandates training for each individual applying for a concealed handgun permit. Our CPL/CCW Course exceeds the State requirements. We teach you what you need to know versus the minimum requirements. Our instructors are NRA certified. It is very important that the student already be familiar with their firearm as there is no time allotted in class for personal firearm instruction. Personal instruction can be scheduled with an instructor if needed.

Our focus will be on certification, safety, liability, use of deadly force, interfacing with law enforcement, gun laws, case law and current legislation among other legal aspects.


Course includes all necessary equipment and faculty use. Come as you are - just bring some form of payment - we can provide the rest of what you need.
