Back in 1949, Buddy Grant set out to provide area sportsmen with a great selection of outdoor gear at fair prices. Four generations later, The Grant Boys continues in Buddy's tradition by offering one of the largest inventories of sporting goods in Southern California. Our 12,000 square-foot store is chock full of gear and accessories for camping, fishing, and shooting.

Whether you're looking to spend an afternoon at the range or you're heading off for a two-week hunting trip in Montana, we have everything you'll need. Our stock of camping supplies is absolutely incredible. We carry tents from Coleman, Eureka and Columbia, backpacks from Coleman and Kelty, sleeping bags from Kelty, Slumberjack, and Coleman, Igloo coolers, and more. For a comfortable night's sleep we have Thermarest self-inflating mattresses. The Grant Boys has a great selection of Lodge Cast Iron cookware. For finding your way through the wild, we feature GPS devices from Magellan and Garmin. From shovels to rope to compasses, we've got you covered. And, if the hunting's not good, take a break and do a little fishing. We carry salt water, fresh water and fly fishing tackle and gear, including rods and reels from Penn, Shimano, Kencor and Calstar.

Our 4,000 square foot clothing department has everything for the outdoorsman. We stock gloves, vests, jackets, and other clothing from quality makers like Woolrich and Columbia. For boots we offer you the best from Kamik, Columbia, Wolverine, and Hi-Tec. The Grant Boys is the largest Levi's dealer in Orange County, with many hard-to-find sizes in stock. We also carry rugged pants from Wrangler and Carhartt.

Our selection of firearms accessories is just as extensive. For tracking your prey, we have spotting scopes from Bushnell, and binoculars from Pentax. Take your prey down with scopes we have for every budget from Simmons, Bushnell, Leupold, and Redfield. For fast target acquisition, we have red dot sights from Simmons and other makers. And, for low-light conditions, we stock laser sights from LaserMax, as well as Maglight flashlights, and SureFire hand-held lights and weapons lights. For holsters, we offer a variety of models from Galco and Bianchi. To keep your guns secure, we stock gun safes from Mutual Safe and DAC, along with an assortment of California-approved locking devices. You'll want a good knife in the field, so we offer you blades from Victorinox Swiss Army (the original Swiss Army knife), Buck, Benchmade, Spyderco, Kershaw, Schrade, and other makers.

Our inventory of firearms is one of the best in the area. We have new and used models from names such as Winchester, Charles Daly, Glock, Browning, Marlin, Remington, New England Firearms, Ruger, Sigarms, Beretta, Heckler and Koch, Kimber, Henry, Springfield Armory, Smith and Wesson, Walther, Benelli, and others. We're always looking to buy your quality used firearms, so see us first for the best deal. Or we'll sell your gun for you on consignment. We buy estates, whether it's five guns or five hundred. We also do appraisals. If you have a gun you want to sell privately, we'll handle the state paperwork for you. We also do out of state transfers for California-acceptable firearms, as well as shipping guns out of state.

At The Grant Boys, we go the extra mile by providing services that other stores don't. We conduct hunter safety classes once a month in the off-season, and twice a month during hunting season. We conduct training classes for California Department of Justice Handgun Safety Instructors (we train the trainers), and we also issue California Handgun Safety Certificates (HSC) to first-time handgun buyers. If you need a California Hunting or Fishing License you'll be pleased to know that you can purchase these at our store. We also carry Mexican Fishing Licenses. For those who've had their guns confiscated due to legal entanglements, we'll retrieve the firearm from just about any law enforcement agency in Southern California, and sell it for you or transfer it to an eligible person.

If you're looking to have a tactical shotgun built, you'll want to see us. We can equip your defense gun with tactical lights and other accessories. We also do scope mounting, bore sighting, and cleaning of firearms.
