Grand Opening of the NEW Red’s Trading Post!!

Monday August 18th will be the Grand Opening of Red’s Trading Post at our new location at 203 5th Ave South in Twin Falls. There will be Free Food, Prizes and most importantly the reps from FNH USA will be here.

Red’s Trading Post is Idaho’s Oldest Gun Shop and was started in 1936 by my Great Grandfather Lowell “Red” Kinney, who after moving here from Dodge City, Kansas helped to complete the Sun Valley Lodge. Following this he bought up his coworkers tools and opened a pawn shop in Twin Falls, soon Red’s became the place for hunters and gun enthusiasts to purchase firearms. In fact they boasted that we had “One of the largest selections in Idaho” (Notice the number on their business card, simply 1397).

So after 72 years in our current location we are saying goodbye, which is bittersweet but we look forward to our new location. I am very familiar with our current location, as my dad was the warehouse manager there in the late 70’s.

I look forward to seeing all of our friends and neighbors at our new home next Monday, the ribbon cutting will be at noon.
