About Red's Carolina Outfitters

A family business and Outer Banks fixture since 1994
Our customers often reminisce of the days when they would rummage through the military surplus randomnly arrayed in what was then Red's Army Navy. The storefront was little more than a garage at that time. While the business has undergone many changes since then, the one constant that has endured is our commitment to the people who live, grind out a living, and recreate on this ribbon of sand we call the Outer Banks. While firmly established as the locals' source for gear to tackle any demanding outdoor endeavor, Red's is also an FFL/Class 3 dealer. In fact, Red's Carolina Outfitters is the only storefront FFL dealer "on the beach" between Corolla and Frisco. Interested in obtaining your NC Concealed Handgun Permit? Red's offers the longest-running and most popular concealed carry class in the area. For class info call 252-261-6681. FFL Transfers $45
