When you hear the word “pepper box” you typically think of something that grinds pepper corns for your fine dining experience. When The Gun Room Inc. says “pepper box” we are talking about the precursor to the modern revolver. When the pepper box first came out it gave an instant tactical advantage over the single shot firearms that were in use at the time. In fact it could be said the pepper box was the first tactical pistol ever in that it could shoot rounds just as fast as you could cock it and pull the trigger.
The pepper box resembles the famous gatling gun that would come out later with it’s multi-barreled design and it’s ability to shed lead.
The Gun Room Inc. is fortunate to know some of the best collectors on the planet and it’s this relationship with their customers that brings in some of the most collectible firearms you’ve never heard of. Enter the Blissett Pepper Box!
This pistol is one of the finest we’ve seen at any auction anywhere period.
Isaac and John Blissett were gun makers, jewelers, and engravers for the Crown and the Duke of Sussex until around 1850.
When it comes to hunting and bushcraft nothing beats a good knife, and not having one can mean the difference between a good time and a miserable one.
At The Gun Room Inc. we have a few of the favorites but we also have a few of the best. Take Alan Warren’s fine custom knives for example.
Yes you’ve probably dreamed of owning one if you’re into edged instruments of art. Some people call Alan’s knives tools, others call them weapons, here at The Gun Room Inc. we call them art.
If you’re in the know and have been following Alan’s endeavors in magazines or in the world wide web of who’s it-what’s it then you know Alan Warren knives are very hard to get. Alan takes great pride in his knives and all of them are one of a kind that’s made for work.
Some people put them in a display case, other people like this writer use them in the field and pass them on to our sons and daughters.
If you are a big game hunter then you know the axiom of carrying several knives to get the dirty work finished. The other high quality knives lose their edge before the work is done, on an elk for example, so you use a second or even a third to finish it up. People who actually use their Alan Warren knives only use the one, the line between art and science has been merged into the pinnacle of heat treatment hardness VS toughness VS form and function. If you have waited a year or more to get an Alan Warren knife and got your hopes real high, you weren’t disappointed. Never a complaint other than waiting for Alan to catch up with orders. He doesn’t rush he takes his time and turns out the best in blades period.
I would say check out his work at a show, but he doesn’t go to any. Alan doesn’t advertise, he just makes fine knives for a lucky few.
At The Gun Room Inc. we are lucky enough to have an extensive collection of Alan Warren Knives in stock and on display. Give us a call at (503)777-3931 or better yet come on down to the shop on the corner of 56th and Foster Rd. and see them for yourself!

With so much of the shooting crowd using semi automatics it’s worth mention that the most reliable of pistols have never gone out of fashion. With the best accuracy of the small arms gamut the old reliable wheel gun or revolver still crosses the T’s and dots the I’s as the go to for compact carry, ease of use and supreme accuracy.

Where high capacity magazines and “spray and pray” mentalities abound the revolver stands on it’s own for the shooter who knows one well placed shot ends all discussion. Single action shooters and competitions continue to proliferate using replicas and real steel revolvers that grandpa used to carry. You don’t have to be a cowboy or Kojack to know that the wheel gun isn’t going anywhere soon.

At The Gun Room Inc. 1911 isn’t just spoken here , we have different dialects. The Gun Room Inc. takes great pride in our 1911 collection which ranges from the basic MILSPEC to the full match custom, and in calibers you probably didn’t know were available in the 1911 design.
Colt Defender 1911 Stainless Steel
Take the Colt 38 Super 1911 for example, a cartridge that history tried to relegate to the past in 1934 when the .357 came out and was adopted for police carry. The 38 Super’s popularity is on the rise again in IPSC competitions and remains as the caliber of choice for accuracy and balanced power.

It’s true that this time of year when the days are short and the air is cold the inner hunter awakes in us all. Whether you are a man or a woman the increased urgency to get up early and do something this time of year is an ingrained biological clock that ticks to get prepared for the winter. They love this time of year at The Gun Room Inc. as it means more time to scratch that itch that wakes us up before the birds and gets us outside. Hunting and fishing is what we are wired for and we gleefully stock our larders with game and fish to meet the winter head on in comfort, warmth, and security knowing that our clock is correct and our families are provided for.
Getting a hunting trip in is hard in today’s modern lifestyle, let alone a p.t. session in the ever demanding times we live in. To battle the people who chip away at our precious little time most of us follow the internal clock that Mother Nature put into motion the day we were born. Stomping thru the dark on a trail in the bitter cold may seem extreme to some but to those of you afflicted the same way as us it makes perfect sense. The Gun Room Inc’s customers like to be first, they like to win, and they look towards the future at the same time as remembering the lessons of the past.
A great many of The Gun Room Inc’s customers like hunting with bows and come to them because of Shaun’s legendary Archery Department and massive bush skill. At The Gun Room Inc. they have some of the best gear on the planet for the bow hunter and archery enthusiast, not to mention Shaun will build you the “one off” that you dreamt about while counting sheep in your warm bed.
Myself, I’m a primitive hunter and (not so primitive as to use a bow) anything in my arsenal requires judicious use of black powder and big slow heavy lead. For me The Gun Room Inc. has everything I need to cast lead and work up loads for my 45-70 or .50 muzzle loader. My girlfriend is more of a modern hunter and uses wildcats that amaze me with their flat trajectories and unusual calibers. She’s a big fan of The Gun Room Inc.’s gunsmith Mark Fox because he gets the utmost accuracy out of some of the best looking rifles I’ve ever seen. Sure it aint cheap but she’s worth it if you ask her!
For those of you that caught the waterfowl bug (lucky I escaped that malady!) The Gun Room Inc. has you covered with the biggest selection of waterfowl shotguns and accessories anywhere in the greater Northwest region. When I have shotgun questions I always talk to Warren, he can paint the sky like Michelangelo when we shoot clays, and just about everyone else there can too. Nobody knows the region better for waterfowl than The Gun Room Inc., and nobody has more options for the even the worst case of duck fever then they do.
The Gun Room Inc. was founded on the principal of good guns and fine firearms over quantities of crap and plastic. Many of the guns I use today are older than myself and are highly prized by the people I shoot with, so when they ask where they can get one I always tell them the Gun Room Inc. that’s where! I don’t work for The Gun Room Inc., and I didn’t get anything to write these thoughts down out of them, this little article is aimed towards the beginner and the experienced alike who are looking for the very best money can buy. If you want to talk to me about this article or any guns that you may be looking for just flag me down. I’ll be the guy on the trail ahead of you whose headlamp you see bouncing off in the distance. My clock runs a bit fast!
