A clean gun is a happy gun

Proudly Serving the Brainerd Lakes Area

I’ve been a professional gunsmith, providing gun repair for the Brainerd, Baxter and Little Falls area for over 25 years. I am an avid hunter and shooter, and always trying out the “latest” in the firearms industry. I also enjoy old classic guns. If it shoots, I like it!

My passion for hunting and shooting has led me to hunt Whitetail deer, Elk, Antelope, and Black bear, as well as upland game birds; I also varmint hunt for fox, coyote and prairie dogs. I’ve taken many hunting trips to Africa, and have hunted a wide variety of plains game including Cape Buffalo, Gem’s Bock, Eland and Mountain Zebras. The trophies from these hunts are displayed in my shop.

I’ve participated in many types of shooting sports over the years, including trap, skeet, sporting clays, handgun silhouette, rifle silhouette, NRA bull's-eye, Benchrest, IDPA, action pistol shooting, and lately it has been 3 gun.


Whether you use your firearm for hunting, target shooting, self defense or just plinking, I can keep them in top working order. From a complete cleaning to a re-build, a full action job to a total restoration, I can bring your favorite old gun back to life, or make your new gun shoot like it should.


I take pride in what I do and stand behind my work. I’m a straight-shooter in more ways than one.
