Very nice range and a pretty big store. This place can get busy so be prepared to wait if purchasing a firearm. Prices are reasonable they have a good selection. The range people have always been nice to me and I even watched them help a guy align his scope!

Friendly atmosphere and knowledgeable staff. Mr. Richard was kind to my family and answered all of my questions about purchasing a firearm. He escorted me through the store to help me find the items I was looking for. My family and I had a wonderful experience!

Very cool place if you reload. Now that Obama and Hillary are gone, the shelves are full again. Wide selection of bullets and powder They are $2 cheaper than Academy and Bass Pro Shop. Found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. I have dealt with their gun smith three times and found him to be very skillful and above all things very honest.

Just bought a shotgun from Carters Country after I was completely ignored by the employees at Academy for being young. Walked into Carters Country and was instantly greeted by Richard the same guy who helped me with my first purchase there! He answered any questions I had like he did before and definitely cool person to talk to. Definitely know where I'm going and who I'm going to when it's time for a new firearm!

I love Carters Country!!!! I was in there Yesterday buying a Fixed Blade Knife for my Buddy for Christmas. Drew him as Secret Santa. The Lady working the counter was super helpful. She let me look at a couple of different knives knowing that i was not ready to purchase. Aloud me to take pictures of all the knives i looked at as well, some places get weird about that. I went back to purchase the knife today on payday. I quickly looked at some competitors websites and they offered the Same Blade for a Discounted price. Same Lady helped me out and she Price Matched the price no problem. Total great experience, will defiantly be back!!!

Awesome gun store with great service. Picked up a Walther PPS M2 on sale. I forgot salesman's name (Glenn I think) but he was really good. Paid 100 percent attention to me the entire time I was there. Even got me interested in a Taurus Judge as I waited for the BG check to come in. Cashier/BG check lady was nice too very good staff. Will be back soon no question. Katy Frwy location

Texas Deer Hunting With Carter’s Country

In the early 70’s a trip to Carter’s Country with my older brother, a former Marine and Vietnam Vet, was much more than just an opportunity to prove my marksmanship to my hero. I knew if I did, it would expedite my opportunity to go hunting with him and get to sit in...

Texas Dove Hunting 2018

Dove hunting in Texas has many fans for many reasons. It’s fun, it can be relatively inexpensive, grilled dove is delicious and a dove hunt in early September is a great chance to see just how much you can actually sweat while wearing camouflage, just in case that’s...

Snake!!!

The dumbest thing anyone could ever say to me is “Don’t move! There’s a snake!”. Although it is technically good advice, there is no way I’m staying still if I know I’m near a snake. Call me a sissy, a girly man or pretty much anything you want. The fact is, always...

Texas Hog Hunting

Now is a great time to try your hand at hog hunting. Spring turkey season is wrapping up and it will be a while before dove, duck and deer season come back around. In the meantime that leaves hogs as a Texan’s most viable hunting option. Texas has more hogs than any...
