Pete's Gun Shop

Pete's Gun Shop began as a hobby in 1956, run by it's founder, Peter Decker, out of the front office of his family business (Decker's Cleaners and Dyers) on 31 Colombia Street in Adams, MA. The gun business grew by leaps and bounds, and eventually eclipsed the cleaning business in scope. The cleaning business was eventually downsized, and the gun business became the main concern. In 1983, the former building was remodeled with a concentration toward allowing more space for guns. In 1992, following the death of Pete's wife Elinor, the cleaning business onsite was closed and any cleaning was farmed out to a subcontractor. In the late 90's, while demolishing an electrical substation next to the former cleaners, National Grid found the presence of severe pollution dating back to the existence of a co-generation facility run there about 100 years previously. Negotiations were entered to try to clean up the pollution which was present beneath the building. In 2004, Peter Decker passed away after a very short illness. The present owner, Tom Decker, found himself with a gun shop business and a polluted property that was still embroiled in a fight with the polluter, National Grid. When negotiations again progressed, the former building was sold, paving the way for our new shop at 9 Grove Street in Adams, MA. The new building is a wonderful place with period decorations and a warm atmosphere, welcoming to any and all. It is a friendly place to visit and find your next firearm purchase. Pete's offers a large variety of firearms, both new and used. Ex: Semi-auto rifles, "black" guns, pump and semi-auto shotguns, target rifles, hunting long guns. All handguns are MA compliant. Stop in and visit, you have never been in a shop like Pete's!

The U.S. House is voting to impose universal gun background checks. But the fact is, if these rules had been in place, they would not have prevented a single mass public shooting in recent years. Instead, they stop law-abiding citizens from owning a gun, most often poor people and minorities. Everyone wants to stop bad guys from getting guns, but universal background checks is just not an effective way to do that.
