Welcome to WT’s Guns
Mr. Wilburn Rutledge founded WT’s Guns in 1989. The original WT’s Guns was located on Highway 70 in Princeton and then moved to Rosewood in 1998 and on to Goldsboro in 2005. W.T. continues to be the Owner and President and the store continues to be family operated.
WT’s Guns was founded from a passion for hunting and fishing and WT’s desire to operate a company that included two of his favorite things in life: family and the outdoors. His vision has led WT’s Guns since its inception.
An 11,000 square foot building and Indoor Range was built in 2008 and contained over 1,800 guns along with accessories, clothing, ammunition, concealed carry classes, safes and lots of extras. The indoor range has eight lanes with a shooting distance of up to 25 yards. The range is designed for handguns, rifles and shotguns and includes numerous opportunities for families, law enforcement, businesses and individuals.
In 2012 WT’s expanded its current location to over 21,000 square feet and added numerous new product lines. An indoor archery range was also added to compliment the indoor shooting range. The new addition is named WT’s Outdoor Shop and Indoor Archery Range! In the Spring of 2013 WT added another passion of his, fishing tackle. This makes WT’s Guns the largest shop of its kind in Eastern NC. Customers come from as far as Charlotte and as close as Wilson, Dunn, Rocky Mount, Smithfield, Selma, and Raleigh to visit our store! If you have never visited our location you will be amazed!!
We pride ourselves on providing great customer service and opportunities for the entire family.
We would like to announce the addition of WT & Jeannie’s daughter, Jennifer Bizzell and son, Tommy Rutledge here at WT’s. Please take a moment to come by the store to meet them! WT’s is proud to say we are truly “a family store with a whole lot more!”

WT’s Guns carries several products from TWAW. Mayes said holsters, compression shorts and tanks with built-in holsters and gun-themed jewelry sell very well in their store. Women buy the products in their store rather than online because “they can pick it up and see it.” CLICK HERE for more!
