Check out Europe’s biggest gun store.

5,000 square meters.

Maybe a couple of hundred shotguns and bolt-actions rifles.


They would probably soil themselves if they walked into your average Gander Mountain or Cabelas, right?

From Russia Today:

The biggest arms shop in Europe will soon open its door in a Danish city. The owners of the ‘Weapon Fortress’ claim the store offering various types of guns, rifles and ammunition will be a mecca for enthusiasts.

The 5,000-square-meter Ostysk Vabenhandel shop was built in the town of Hedensted, in central Jutland Peninsula.

The store is to be nearly twice as big as Europe’s current largest weapon shop, in Germany.

“It is built to the maximum limit in relation to what the local planning codes allow,” co-owner Kenneth Pedersen told Ekstra Bladet newspaper as cited by the Local. “We have an additional 2,500 square meters on the upper level that we can’t use. If we could, we would have definitely used that too.”

The store will also have hunting expedition company and a taxidermist.

Seems they aren’t interested in a drive-up window for business…

“We have video surveillance outside and a direct line to police,” Nielsen said. “It’s not like other places where thieves could just take their car and drive into the building like a battering ram. It can’t be done.”

    1. 10.764 sq ft to one sq m

      5000 sq m = 53820 sq ft

      Not as big as the largest Cabela’s but bigger than the smallest.

      Not bad for tiny Denmark.
