Over time, you find out who you can trust; the plumber, the electrician the auto repair shop. We've got a list of people we've done business with and developed a bond of trust with. We have no reluctance in recommending them to you.

S&L Holsters
Need a custom fitted, hand made holster that will last a lifetime? 
Who doesn't?
Shawn and S&L holsters can do it for you at a price anyone can afford.  (Depending on options, typical holster price is $45.00)
Shawn specializes in Concealed Carry "Pancake" style holsters.  Pancake holsters are a proven design that support and protect the gun with built-in tension.  They also hold the gun close to the body for maximum comfort and concealment.
Holsters are available in a variety of belt attachment systems, colors and designs.
I own several of Shawn's holsters and am well satisfied with them.  If you've attended one of our pistol classes, you've seen Shawn's work.

He offers a money back, no questions asked guarantee.

Wipe-Out Gun Cleaner


Wipe-Out is by far the best gun cleaning product I've used.  It cleans carbon and copper fouling in your rifle while you sleep.


I'm not kidding!


You know other Copper Cleaners can't be left in the barrel for more than 10-15 minutes without barrel damage.  Not Wipe-Out.  Put it in the bore and leave it for an hour or overnight.  Run a patch throught the barrel and you'll be amazed at the amount of copper removed!


It works on handguns too.

Bill Springfield
Trigger Work
Got an AR and wish the trigger were better? Don't we all. The stock triggers are generally disappointing.
Well, you could spend $125.00 to $250.00 for a match trigger assembly to fix the problem, or you could send your AR lower to Bill Springfield at Bill will use your parts to create a smooth, no creep, clean break trigger for less than $50.00. I've had Bill do four of my personal AR's and I'm very pleased. Bet you will be too.
