"There are many places to “buy” a gun. They all charge about the same prices and either have or can get you the same guns. But what do you do when you have a problem with a gun you bought? Do you have a place to take it to get it fixed? Bo Carpenter at Generational Guns is not only an expert gunsmith, but also an expert at customer service. I’ve bought several guns from Bo. The last pistol I bought I had to buy on-line. It was really hard to find and not available from Bo’s suppliers, but Bo did the FFL transfer for me. Several months later, while the pistol was still under warranty, the safety was malfunctioning. Bo diagnosed the problem as a broken part, contacted the manufacturer for me and offered to send the pistol in for repair. Because it was going to take 8 weeks for the manufacturer to repair my pistol, Bo got the part and fixed it for me in his shop. I was very impressed and pleased to get my pistol back so quickly. That’s why I highly recommend doing business at Generational Guns." Paul Berg
"My No 1 place to buy guns and supplies, very knowledgeable and friendly."
"A few months ago, we took a gun with a jamming problem into Generational Guns. Bo fixed it immediately at price that was more than fair! We have only known Bo and Heather for a few months; but it feels like we’ve known them for years! We’ve purchased several things from them and we always get a great deal. Their friendliness and honesty, as well as their competitive pricing and excellent service is above and beyond anyone else! We strive to support local and family-owned businesses.

“You break it, we fix it. You dream it, we make it.”
"Since Generational Guns has opened in Bondurant I have purchased a few firearms from Bo and his wife and I couldn’t be happier. The first thing that impressed was Bo’s knowledge of firearms. He was able to find solutions for all my needs. When I was looking for a tactical shot gun, he was able to build me one that not only had a nice custom look and feel to it, but also met the exact specifications I wanted. It is invaluable having a full gunsmith, like Bo, in Bondurant. I have had work done such as scope mounting, sight adjustment, magazine customization, and more. I have also had the opportunity to sell on consignment in the shop. Bo and his wife made this a great experience as well!
There has only been one time something didn’t work the way it was supposed to. Bo took care of me and made it right before I even had the opportunity to ask.
Generational Guns has great owners. They don’t judge you on what you know or don’t know about the sport. They treat you like a friend and not just a customer! They are willing to go out of their way to help you find solutions for you needs. I would defiantly recommend stopping by and checking them out!" Samuel Otto

"A buddy and I went there to get parts for a .50 and they even to took the time to put it together while we did other chores in town. Very nice very professional. I'll be going back for more gun needs." Grant Lamb
"The wife and I stopped in to see Bo on the recommendation of a friend. My wife was looking to purchase a rifle. Bo showed us his entire stock, answering all of our questions and patiently explaining all of our options. We did shop around afterward but made the decision to purchase at Generational based on his level of service before, during, and after the sale. I highly recommend this be your first stop, whether you be a novice experienced shooter." Jeremy Michael
