About the owner:
Dan is first and foremost a Christian. He is a U.S. Marine, "Once a Marine, Always a Marine!", a retired NC Highway Patrolman. He attended Piedmont Community College in Roxboro North Carolina where he graduated from their two (2) year Gunsmithing course. "In business since 2001, I have been interested in refinishing/restoration of firearms. I think that Color Case Hardening, Slow Rust Bluing and Rust Browning & Nitre Bluing is a work of art. I've always liked to work my hands. Double barrel shotguns such as Parkers, Winchesters, Lefevers, Fox's, Ithacas, LC Smiths etc. is what I prefer to work on. Plus I like to work on lever actions such as Winchesters and Marlins. Once I retired from the highway patrol, I went back to school to get my Gunsmithing degree and learned how to work on other peoples firearms. I especially like to Color Case Hardened, that is where I hang my hat!".
