Hannah Perry Hopkins
PRESIDENT, PERRY’S GUN SHOP
After graduating from NC State University in 2006 with a degree in Business Management & Marketing, Hannah joined the family business her father started in 1981. In the following years, she gained experience and a deeper understanding of various aspects of the industry. After learning about silencers and firing a suppressed firearm for the first time, she decided to expand Perry’s product offerings into silencers and other NFA products in 2007. Since then, she has expanded the internet side of the business while the retail store continues to grow. She enjoys mentoring other firearms retailers that are considering getting their SOT and expanding their businesses to sell silencers too. She has served on numerous committees and boards to advocate for the industry on all levels from consumer education and dealer education to representing retailers nationwide in Washington, DC for regulatory improvements. Her favorite part of the job is always the people. Working alongside her dad each day, the staff at her store, the customers, her fellow retailers, the manufacturer’s reps, the executives, the legislators… all the friends she’s made along the way. She loves meeting other women leaders in our industry and connecting with other dealers.
Hannah was named President of Perry’s Gun Shop in 2021. She is excited about the future of the retail store and the industry as a whole. She maintains a passion for regulatory reform and improving accessibility to and awareness of silencers. She is excited to be involved with the American Suppressor Association as well as the newly formed Foundation.
When not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, trying out new restaurants, and playing with her golden retriever.
