Customer Testimonial

"I had Chuck mill down the left side of my ambidextrous safety on my 1911 in order to fit crimson trace laser grips. He did an excellent job! It was done within millimeters of clearance under the grip and he matched the resulting piece of metal to the black frame. There were no noticable signs of milling at all. I had my pistol back within a week (although I did not have to wait for parts). It was done so well that you can't tell it had work done on it. I frequently recommend Chuck as a gunsmith to all of my friends."

Customer Testimonial

"I met Chuck and Peggy Elrod by taking the Concealed Carry Course that they offer. They show the same dedication to their store customers that they show to their students. The Elrods take the time to educate, assist and ensure their customers are happy with their purchases and informed about their use.

I purchased a pistol from Bear Creek in June of last year. I found that the pistol had frequent feeding failures regardless of the ammunition used. I took the pistol back to the store. Chuck didn’t bat an eye. He promptly field stripped the pistol right there and began examining it. He showed me several areas where the machining appeared to be substandard. Chuck contacted the manufacturer while I was there, and arranged for me to return the pistol for repair. Since it had been fired, it couldn’t be exchanged. The repair was made, but I was still having problems, and reported that to the Elrods. Chuck asked me to bring in the pistol again. When I got to the store, he took three other pistols of the same make out of the case, field stripped each one, and asked me to look them over. I selected what I thought was the cleanest one. Chuck then purchased my old pistol on the spot and transferred the new pistol to me. I’ve not had a problem since.

That same care extends to Chuck’s gunsmithing. I’ve since had him repair two guns, a pistol and a rifle that I’ve owned for thirty years, and both look and shoot like brand new. I’ve also asked him to do sight and trigger work on a used Ruger Single-Six I purchased elsewhere, turning it into a joy to shoot. He’s always interested, enthusiastic and ready to talk. His passion about his work is the highest I’ve seen. I can recommend Bear Creek Gun Shop and Gunsmithing and the Elrods with complete confidence."

Customer Testimonial

"I have been through just about every gunsmith and so-called "professional" for the 100 mile surrounding area. No where else have I seen such a level of dedication to both the piece and the customer as I have seen with the Elrods. Since taking the concealed carry course with them, I have been back for anything from opinions to custom rework on dated pieces. Chuck has personally inspected and repaired a number of firearms I have had for years, including one that does not even have parts support anymore. Chuck made the part by hand, and I have never seen the bolt so smooth before it. An enthuiast knows another when they see them, and every visit back I still learn something new. I am very fond of both my tools and the sport of shooting, and I take quality very seriously. I take all of my guns to one place, the very same place that I send anyone I care about. I would recommend two people to anyone for the education as well as the work, and they both live under one roof. The Elrods have my vote as clout for anything they claim that they can do."
