Arego's Guns, 532 Airport Road, is run by the first generation of the Latsha family, which bought the business from good friends Brenda and Benny Arego in 2018.
Roger and Erin Latsha have four employees at the business, which was started in 1998 in Hot Springs.
"Benny and Brenda started (the business) in 1998. Roger and Erin became partners in 2014 to help out and learn the business. We purchased the business in full in 2018," Roger says.
"We are mostly a gun store. We sell guns and accessories from handguns to rifles and shotguns, along with all the accessories you could need and all the ammo you're ever gonna need (usually). We also offer concealed carry classes," he said.
"We strive to be a one-stop-shop and to help our customers have the best gun buying experience they can. We want everyone that comes in to leave happy and feeling that we helped them make the right choice for their needs."
Arego's has won The Sentinel-Record's Readers Choice five years running, and was Disabled American Veterans Sponsor of the Year for 2019 and 2020 and Donor of the Year for the Mountain Valley Sportsman's Association.
"Every year we have a Veterans Day event, offering discounts to veterans and lots of giveaways," he said.
Arego's sponsors the 4-H trapshooting team; multiple events at MVSA; Our Promise; and Grant Kunkel, the local world speed championship winner.
