Nichols Guns is located inside Nichols Westwood Pharmacy on Leopard Street in Northwest Corpus Christi. Jack Nichols opened the family- owned pharmacy in 1960. Jack’s son, Bobby, joined the family business upon graduation from pharmacy school in 1989. Together, they continue to meet the community’s health care needs.
The rumor that Nichols Westwood Pharmacy is closing is NOT TRUE. Bobby’s daughter, Virginia, attends the University of Texas at Austin and plans to pursue a career in pharmacy and join the family pharmacy business. At that time, three generations of Nichols will service the community’s health care needs. In the Fall of 2012, Jack and Bobby decided to operate a gun store in the pharmacy’s front end retail area. Nichols Guns opened in late December 2012. Bobby’s son, Tim, a high school student and gun enthusiast, joined the family business and works in the gun store when his school and sports schedule permits. Three generations of Nichols personally serve the shooting sports community.
The gun store consistently has more than 150 guns in stock, including handguns, shotguns, rifles and tactical firearms. Nichols Guns also has a Class 3 license and carries suppressors in its inventory. We will also special order Class 3 firearms. The store also has a large selection of accessories, including ammunition, cleaning kits, magazines, optics and holsters. We are the only Galco holster distributor in the Corpus Christi area. We also carry other inventory, including a full line of Costa Del Mar sunglasses and Case knives. We are a Gold Level dealer for Case Knives and have many hard to find knives, including commemoratives.
The Nichols family strongly believes that service is just as important as product. Customer service has been, and continues to be, a cornerstone of Nichols Westwood Pharmacy, which provides prescription delivery to its customers. Customer service is just as important at Nichols Guns. Bobby Nichols assists customers in booking wing shooting trips to Argentina. The family hired Ben Harbeck, a certified gunsmith and graduate of the Gunsmithing program at Montgomery Community College in North Carolina, to serve as the retail manager of gun store. Ben’s expertise and experience permits him to recommend the right firearm and accessories for each customer, and to repair firearms on site.
An indoor 18 lane 25 yard shooting range is currently under construction and will open soon. The range will offer memberships or lane rental by the hour. Shooters may bring their own gun or rent one of ours. To reduce the waiting time to get onto a lane, customers may download, complete the required paperwork before using the range for the first time. We encourage customers to complete the paperwork and bring it into the store before the range opens.
The range will also offer a variety of firearm classes, including the course necessary to obtain a Texas Concealed Handgun License.
