I would like to introduce myself. I am Todd Cotta, the owner of Kings Gun Center. I have felt for a very long time that Kings and Tulare Counties deserved more than what we have had over the past 20 years. People say that California is not a good place to try to build a center for firearms enthusiasts and those who want to improve at the shooting skills. I say they are wrong. For too long I sat around waiting for someone else to bring a Gun Center to Hanford, I finally realized that someone was going to be me.

My goal for the Central San Joaquin Valley is simply this: Bring to the Valley simply the best staff, training, repair and hopefully soon an indoor range. It is easy to just be average and blend in. I will strive to bring a whole new style of Gun Center to the region. I want this facility to be recognized in its field for its innovation and forward thinking when it comes to how we do our business.

My staff and I will be ready to break any stereotypes that you may have about gun stores and gun culture. We will focus on customer service and be there for all of your firearms needs, from the sale, to service and top notch training.

Email me at at any time if you have questions or concerns.

Welcome to the Kings Gun Center and enjoy.

Guns are Doug Hodson’s passion. He enjoys learning all that he can about every different kind of firearm. He is excited about the prospect of teaching others about guns, how to handle them safely and especially…how to feel comfortable handling and shooting guns. He is a strong supporter of the NRA, CALGUNS and the Right of the People to keep and bear arms. He ardently believes that everyone should have the correct training on gun safety; the more people know about gun safety, the less potential for accidents involving firearms.

Doug has a Bachelors degree from Fresno State in Criminology with a Minor in Victimology. For the past nine years, he has been a school teacher in Hanford, CA. During his downtime, he enjoys target shooting, camping and spending time with his family.  Doug is also a certified NRA Pistol Instructor, DOJ certified firearms instructor, and a NRA training Counselor.

Doug is honored to be part of Kings Gun Center founding team. He really looks forward to helping you with your future firearm purchases and training needs.
