Our skilled staff is made up of recreational & professional shooters, Current Law Enforcement Officers, former military, hunters, and armorers with over 40 years of general shooting experience and over 20 years of experience in the firearms industry collectively. All of our instructors are NRA Certified Pistol Instructors and hold Maryland Qualified Handgun Instructors Certifications (QHIC). Whether you're a complete beginner, requiring your MD HQL, looking to obtain your concealed carry permit for Maryland, Virginia or West Virginia, or an experienced shooter looking to perfect your skills or learn something new, we have you covered. Our armorers, gunsmiths and sales team is made up of some of the same staff who teach our classes. With broad experience across the board from recreational or tactical shooting to a professional environment, we can find the guns and gear you need. Over the years, we have gained many sources for parts for even some of the oldest of military and antique firearms. Whether it's just something small or a hard-to-find specialty part for a restoration, we can probably find it for you. If its something you would rather have a professional work on, we can do that for you too. Our armorers, gunsmiths and machinists have years of experience to get the job done right. We also work with many local dealers in Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia to make it convenient for you to drop your gun off with them if the drive to our shop is a little too far for you. Give us a call today to see what DS Gunworks can do for you!
