Have you ever wanted to learn how to reload your own ammunition? We will be having a Reloading 101 class on February 18th. The 3 hour class will cover all the basics to get you started, and it only costs $20. Space is limited, so stop in, or give us a call (868-8083) to reserve your spot. 

      Cherokee Firearms,

                 Keeping Tradition Alive!​

BRETT:  AKA -  ​'lil bit.

Brett is usually seen nursing hand injuries, mixing protein shakes, or singing karaoke.  When he's not at work, we have no idea what he does.





JENN:  AKA - Stretch.


GALE:  AKA -  Little Drummer Girl.

Gale is as part time as it gets, but she always brightens our day, goes the extra mile, never stands still, and the customers love her bubbly spirit and wealth of knowledge.  Gale's favorite gun has to be her Tiffany Blue Glock 42 with diamond sights.

SETH:  AKA - Scooter Boy.

Seth is a self proclaimed Beretta Nerd and a doting father.  His enthusiasm for customer service can't be beat; come in and let him serve you.  Seth's favorite gun is a Beretta 92 because it is a solid, good feeling gun with a long history with the military.

And, then there was... ARCHIBALD: AKA - Archie.  The ruler of all.  We miss you, buddy.  

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:  AKA - Officer Smiley

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.   



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?

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 have much recoil, and is just fun to shoot!

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.    

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 thinks he needs to change his favorite gun to his new Sig MPX (which he waited over a year for), but since he hasn't shot it yet, we can't let him do that.  Go shoot the thing!

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.

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").
