Meet the smiths
Gunsmith Manager, Alliance
Chris has been taking care of our customers’ firearms while maintaining the Shoot Smart fleet for several years. During his tenure here, Chris has developed a loyal customer following — he’s a terrific gunsmith and a very personable guy to work with.
Chris graduated from the Colorado School of Trades in Denver with a certificate in gunsmithing in 2005. He immediately went to work in the central gunsmith shop at Gander Mountain. In 2010, Chris moved from his home state of Wisconsin to Texas and took a position as the assistant gunsmith at Elk Castle range in west Fort Worth. He joined the Shoot Smart team in May 2012.
While firearms may be a first love for Chris, he also hunts and fishes and earned his private pilot’s license in 2003. Along the way, he became an excellent marksman. If you want to know if your gun is off or if you are off, ask Chris to shoot it for you. Then you’ll know for sure.
Pistol repairs, modifications, and maintenance are the bread & butter for our gunsmith shop right now, but Chris does love to work on rifles, especially bolt-action rifles, and shotguns. He would also be glad to build a rifle just for you — he’s great at figuring out what to build based on your intended use, such as long-distance competition or hunting. And he’s great at working within your budget to get the job done.
Chris is married and has two children and lives in north Fort Worth.

Lever-actions and pistols are his personal favorites to work on, but he will gladly build a rifle to fit any person. Alex is from the Buffalo, New York, area. He works in the gun shop at the Shoot Smart Grand Prairie location.
