Covid-19 Updates

News and information for you while at the range!

From the Desk of John Phillips, President & Founder

In the very dynamic world we find ourselves in, PWG has had to adjust our company and the environment we are in, sometimes on a moment-by-moment basis. With Governor Newsom’s very aggressive order in mid-March for the cessation of activities except those outlined in the CISA list of Critical Infrastructures which includes essential retail and public safety functions, we have been required to limit our business operations in accordance with the orders of the State of California and the County of San Diego. Our primary goal is to keep you updated on these changes as they directly impact you as our members and customers of PWG Range.

Most importantly, I want to personally thank you all for your patronage, words of encouragement and much needed patience. These are unprecedented times and I want to do all I can to ensure the safety of the staff and all of you.  At the same time I feel compelled to ensure that PWG is open and always working to ensure you have access to exercise your constitutional rights, thus ensuring firearms and accessories are available to you to help ensure you, your family and loved ones comfort and safety.  We will get through COVID-19, together!

John Phillips, President & Founder at Poway Weapons & Gear Range
