The Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce named Patriotic Arms 2023 Business of the Year. Patriotic Arms was selected for the unwavering support it has given to the community and chamber.

This distinguished recognition stems from Patriotic Arms’ contributions, encompassing sponsorship of chamber events, veteran events, club functions, and various community events.

Beyond the accolades, Patriotic Arms exemplifies true patriotism. For the past three years, Patriotic Arms has collaborated with other Canyon Lake businesses to show gratitude to veterans by paying for free pizza meals on Veterans Day. It also sponsors CVMA 33-3, California’s Inland Empire chapter of the Combat Vets Motorcycle Association. This exemplifies Patriotic Arms’ enduring dedication to both the community and those who have served the nation.
