Caliber Gun Store

Caliber is a luxury gun store located in Homewood, AL

If you’re an aficionado of high-end guns and catch yourself in the Birmingham-area you should stop by Caliber. Located just a stone’s throw from the Magic City in Homewood the gun store is instantly recognizable. It’s a striking balance of concrete and wood, inviting you in to check out some of the most iconic and sought-after guns in the country.

“What’s really interesting about the opportunity to set this store up is that we were able to have a floor but no ceiling,” said Joe Speer, the gunsmith at Caliber. Inside the gallery, there’s everything from practical Winchester .22s to the exclusive 2 millionth commemorative Browning to the unattainable Izumi Beretta shotgun valued at a cool $250,000.

Don’t worry if you don’t have hundreds or tens of thousands of dollars to drop on your next firearm, they got the everyman covered too. Neatly tucked away in the store you’ll find a plethora of guns ranging from AR’s to Glocks the average Joe can afford. It truly is a store that anyone can walk into with any budget and walk out happy.

In addition to the guns, Caliber caters to the hunter and outdoorsman who wants to look fashionable afield. “We are a gun gallery of course, but we are so much more,” said Cameron Iversen, Caliber’s assistant manager. She showed off the vast selection of shooting shirts, watches, sunglasses, belts, and of particular interest knives and tomahawks.

Iversen explained Caliber features a number of knives in their collection. Everything from the big names like CRKT to local Alabama knife makers range the gamut. Of particular interest in the bladed weapons was the McCoun Tomahawks they had for sale. “Believe or not, we cannot keep these in stock. They are all handcrafted and hand-forged and make for excellent gifts,” she said.

Caliber is a gun store like no other I’ve ever come across. It’s like walking into a car store where you could buy a Bugatti and a Ford Escape all in the same place. If you ever find yourself in Homewood, I highly suggest stopping by. Even if it’s for nothing more than to take in some beautiful guns and friendly conversation.
