The firearms industry is one of the largest industries worldwide. In the United States alone there are over 300 million legally owned guns in civilian hands. The Firearms Portal will provide a “one stop store” for everything related to firearms.
The Firearms Portal & Events Center is a community portal, that contains a business directory and industry forum aimed at firearms users and the firearms industry world wide. It contains the Events Center where users can search for firearms courses, classes and events and book online. It also provides a "one stop shop" of information relevant to the industry including a searchable data base of companies that are either involved in the firearms industry in some way, or are "gun friendly", for example restaurants that welcome concealed carry permit holders, stores that give discounts to gun owners, and even web designers that are “gun friendly”. There is also a completely free to use online classifieds section - "Dirty Howie's List” - accessible to all members. At the request of members, coming in Q3 2013 are "GunLove" a introductions sister site aimed at those with something in common GUNS, and the FP Jobs site that will list firearms industry and armed security jobs worldwide.

Speaking about the Firearms Portal, Central Florida radio host and author Steve Bussey said “Firearms are a tool like any other but instead of building or fixing mundane inanimate objects they are the tools of freedom and liberty for nations and individuals alike. The firearms portal will bring together people who understand the proper application of this tool so vital in human history as well as those seeking to learn.”.
SCT Media USA's Web Projects Manager, had this to say - “the idea for the Firearms Portal came out of spending four frustrating days of looking for firearms related information that I eventually found in several different locations. I thought there has to be something better than this, but there wasn't. Now there is”
