Texas City: T's Guns & Ammo

Postby seamusTX » Thu Jun 18, 2009 6:06 pm

T's Guns & Ammo has reopened at a new location.

1826 Loop 197 North (25th Avenue North)
Texas City, TX 77590
Telephone 409 948 0101

I stopped there today. They have ammo in most common calibers, not a lot of brand choices.

The owner said that he has applied for an FFL and has an inventory, but hasn't received the license yet.

This location is about a mile from the Texas City Shooting Range. It's in a strip mall on the north side of 25th Avenue North. Yahoo Maps and Mapquest come pretty close.

Google Maps does not show the correct location (Google has a lot of trouble with Texas City addresses).

I should have told them to get involved here, but I wasn't thinking on my two left feet.

SeamusTx - Thanks for the update. In the past I have had good experiences with T's Ammo.

Good catch - Jim!

I too have had good experiences with T's in the past. Glad to hear they are back operational. I will have to stop in and check them out.

Is it still Roy and Pat?

I think it's the same guy that owned the one on Palmer Highway, but I'm not sure.

I thought Pat and Roy had retired and moved away.

The new address sounds very much like their old address, before they moved to Palmer Highway.

No one ever moved to fill the vacuum in loaded ammo caused by their departure. If he has bought new equipment, he can step back in like he never left.

I met some people at the Pasadena Gunshow many months ago who said that they bought the equipment from T's. It's been a while so I don't remember their name. I bought some ammo and had good results, but I never saw them at a show since then.

The story I heard was a comedy of errors. In trying to complete the deal with Roy, they were supposedly only able to borrow enough to buy the building.

I was told they then attempted to charge Roy rent since the equipment they couldn't afford was still inside. Allegedly, Roy made some phone calls and sold his equipment, leaving the new folks with nothing but the payments on an empty building.

I believe Roy's equipment went to several buyers and other dealers bought a lot of his already loaded ammo. It is still showing up on tables at gun shows.

If I didn't qualify this with enough 'supposedly's and 'alledgedly's, the story came from a Texas City gunsmith.

Thank God! I always enjoyed doing business with Roy. I have been buying ammunition from him since my Father had to send me with a note for permission :smilelol5:

He ran the business out of his garage for years before the original Loop 197 location.

FWIW, it will save me some gas money since I would rather be beaten by a large group of gang bangers than to spend ONE PENNY in Elite Sound and Security after the way I was treated by them.

Interesting. I thought that the folks running R&R Ammo at T’s old location on Palmer bought T’s equipment. Guess not. I’ll have to check it out. The new location on 25th St is only a couple of blocks from home.

I bought several boxes of 38 S&W (38/200) JHP from T's at a gun show in Pasadena several years back and I'm out also. I don't find a website for them.

Does anyone know if they still deal in these rather hard to find affordable loads?
