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 helps with marketing and promotions. She is also, the Paperwork Queen.  Debbie's favorite gun would have to be the Sig Sauer P210. "Oh my goodness, it is an amazing gun 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.

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 Hi point (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").
