Our Story

Buck’s Gun Rack was established in 1954 by Richard “Buck” Buckwald in Daytona Beach, Florida.  The business has remained under the same family ownership for over 64 years with the 2nd generation family members currently operating it. Buck moved down from New York in 1950 after returning home from WW II.  He had a passion for firearms that started in the early years and through his time in the military.  Buck’s used his personal collection to stock the store in the beginning. Originally called “The Gun Rack”, the name was later changed to “Buck’s Gun Rack”.  The gun store was opened in the bottom half of the ground floor in its current location, then called Volusia Ave.  Over the years the whole building was taken over.  In 1979 Buck passed away after 25 years in the gun business at the age of 58.  Buck’s Gun Rack gained new management from Buck’s two sons, Scott and Forrest, who continue to provide the area with the same great products and customer service that Buck’s had been known to deliver.

Originally, Buck’s Gun Rack was a firearms and ammunition store that catered to the collector and hunting enthusiast, but over the years additional merchandise lines were added such as, Archery, Knives, Gun Safes, and Police Equipment. Buck’s carries over 1,500 firearms in stock including such brand names as Smith & Wesson, Colt, Ruger, Glock, Sig Sauer, Browning, H&K, Walther, Remington, Savage, Weatherby, Mossberg and more.  Buck’s is the areas only ‘Archery Pro Shop’ with an experienced bow technician on staff and carry the area’s largest selection of PSE Archery and accessories.  Buck’s is well known as the place with one of the area’s best knife selections, with many models to choose from brands that include Buck, Gerber, CRKT, Kershaw, Boker, S&W, and other well-known brands. From pocket knives to survival and hunting knives, there is no better selection.

To this day, Buck’s Gun Rack is still in the same location at 607 W. International Speedway Blvd, just three miles east of the world-famous Daytona International Speedway, home of NASCAR and the Daytona 500 Race.
