Meet The Owner
Kevin Hughes, Owner of Public Gun & Pawn
Born and raised in Oklahoma, Kevin has extensive experience in both the firearms and collateral loan (pawn) business. An avid hunter, firearms collector, and salesman, Kevin purchased the store from its former owner in 2010, resulting in Public Gun & Pawn becoming South Florida’s most popular gun store.
Today, Public Gun & Pawn is a completely different store compared to what it was three years ago; the store has an incredible amount of life, character, and potential thanks to Kevin. The store has transformed into much more than just a gun store—it has become a valuable asset to the community that we live in, and none of it would have been possible without Kevin and his leadership.
