NICK:  AKA - Chief

This is all his fault! He is the mastermind behind this grand scheme. Nick is widely known as the friendliest person in the store with a smile and a conversation for all. Nick's favorite gun would be... his next one. Any guesses on what that might be?

ED:  AKA - Baby Face Ed. 

Oh, what can we say about Ed... We find him hiding out in safes, hanging out in the bathroom, and making us laugh.  He is a man of many hats.  When he is not here, you might find him out playing with fire or saving a life.  Ed's favorite gun is a 1911.  They are his favorite to shoot and just an all around classic gun.

GLENN:   AKA - The Big Teddy Bear. 

Glenn teaches the reloading classes, helps out at gun shows, and any other time extra hands are needed for special projects.  Glenn is always smiling and never says, "No."  If you would like to get Glenn a Christmas present, he would love to have a Barrett .50 caliber.    


Welcome to the NEW home of Cherokee Firearms on the world wide web.  We thought it might be time to step out of the 1990's and update our web page.  It is still a work in progress, so please check back often.  Eventually, we hope that our website will not only show you a glimpse into our store, but that it will also become a tool of information and helpful links and knowledge to aid you in your firearms and shooting life.


GREG:  AKA -  The Patient One.

Greg doesn't really work here... He is on what we call the rebate program; if you spend enough in merchandise, we give you a paycheck every couple of weeks.

We have finalized our new range fee structure.  Take a look!

Watch the progress of our new building and indoor range!

More information can be found on our Shooting Range page.  Click the button to the left to head on over there and check it out.

And, then there was... ARCHIBALD: AKA - Archie.  The ruler of all. 

ALEX:  AKA = Mr. Wiggles

Alex is our college student extraodinaire, and Baby Face Ed's side kick.  Alex's favorite gun is any unusual black powder gun (like the LeMat).  Hmmm, sounds similar to someone else...

Chad is the CCW instructor.  In real life, Chad is in local law enforcement and an avid hunter.  He brings his knowledge, experience, and patience to the classroom each time.   



JESSE:  AKA - The Bearded Wonder.

You have to move fast to keep up with Jesse.  He is always on the move helping customers, organizing merchandise, finding prices, and finishing Dan's paperwork.  Jesse's favorite gun this week would have to be the Sig Sauer 1911 Carry because it a Nightmare and it is just cool.... a perfect fit.

JIM:  AKA - Scratch. 

Jim is a world class engraver, who we are lucky enough to have stationed with us! He engraves guns for people from all over the world, and, also, teaches several engraving classes throughout the year.  His favorite gun is a Winchester/Uberti 1873.  A classic cowboy gun, form and function like none other, so much style and grace it doesn't need engraving... But... Even finer engraved.

DAN:  AKA - Dirty Dan. 

Dan is the longest running employee.  We are not sure what that says about him, but we know what our customers say about him... easy going, friendly, and can talk an Eskimo into an air conditioner.  Dan's favorite gun is anything that begins with "G" and ends with "lock".

DEBBIE:  AKA - Nick's better half. 

Debbie helps with marketing and promotions. She is also, the Paperwork Queen.  Debbie's favorite gun would have to be the Sig Sauer P238. It's easy to conceal, doesn't kick much, and is just fun to shoot!

JON:  AKA - Jonny Hotwrench.

Jon is our in house curmudgeon extraordinaire. The mark of a true gunsmith is his ability to engineer a solution instead of just being able to replace parts.  Jon has an extensive knowledge of older guns which has been essential to his success in helping customers with their special needs.  Jon likes the 1911 because it is the best fighting handgun ever made (and " I'm an old guy and I like old things").
