The American Dream,

With many answered prayers and a great amount of help from friends and family, fall of 2017 marked the beginning of EC Custom Gunshop now EC DEFENSE. Four years later, EC DEFENSE is North Carolina’s fastest growing firearms retailer and training facility. Our team sets the standard for the highest quality self defense and firearms training programs available in the greater Union County area. Our premier concealed carry classes, church protection consultations, firearm modifications, and One-on-One training classes are unmatched in attention to detail and customer satisfaction. With over 80 years of combined defensive, machining, and firearms experience, EC DEFENSE constantly strives for excellence and piece of mind for our amazing customers. EC’s motto is simple “Defend what matters”. To us this means our faith, families, and this amazing freedom we share.
