Jim's Firearm Repair & Sales

We are not like that big box store or overfilled showroom you may be used to. In fact, we are unlike ANY other firearms store in Rhode Island. We are honest, attentive, and involved in every transaction and plan on staying that way!

Jim’s Firearm Repair and Sales is a family owned and operated small business located Johnston, RI. Both owners have been longtime residents of Johnston. Jim’s is located next to Johnston Fireman’s Hall, Company No. 3, and across from Silvio’s Restaurant, with some of the finest Italian cuisine in town.

Jim Connors

My name is Jim Connors and I am the primary owner and founder of Jim’s Firearm Repair & Sales. After 38 years in law enforcement, retirement was approaching and I knew I wanted to continue this path and do something I really enjoyed. After my firearms training, I went on to become a firearms trainer and competitor and frequently repaired my own, my coworkers', and friends' guns. I decided that I would like to do this as a second career upon retirement and attended Gunsmithing School. This was not a hard choice! I began Jim’s Firearm Repair Service in 2012 on a part time basis and, upon retiring in 2014, went full time. I moved to my present location in Johnston and opened my new store in September of 2014. It’s been so rewarding to help and educate many in the community about firearms.

I am a Life Member of the National Rifle Association and still enjoy shooting.

Jared Neirinckx

My Name is Jared Neirinckx and I am a co-owner of Jim’s. Coming from a long line of gun enthusiasts, firearm history has always been a calling for me and I am very happy to bring that knowledge and experience to the shop and assist you in choosing the right firearm. Also, if you have a picture, a drawing, or even an idea – I can help you bring it to reality. My goal is to make sure you are one heck of a satisfied customer. I’ve been in the business-to-business sales arena for over 15 years. Hunting, History, and Homesteading are my passions. My family has been in Johnston since its incorporation in 1759. Their names can be found on memorials in and around Rhode Island, commemorating their service to our country.

I am a Life Member of the NRA, a Life Member of the North American Hunting Society, and member of the Millennial Sportsman Association of America.
