Elk Castle Shooting Sports first opened its doors for business in 1947 when WWII Airman Malcolm Cross returned from duty in the Pacific to join his father Ewell. They opened Ewell Cross Gun Shop in the east side of Fort Worth, TX, and ran a premier gun business for 31 years before relocating to the fast growing west side in 1978.
Despite losing his father, Malcolm built a solid business with a reputation for fairness and expertise, but was ready to retire by the early ‘90’s. Local businessman and gun enthusiast Eric Walsh undertook ownership and management of the store in 1994, and the name was changed to Elk Castle Shooting Sports. It has operated as a full service gun store under the same family management since then.
Elk Castle is located on Interstate 30, just west of Downtown Ft. Worth, and specializes in new and used firearms, scopes, ammunition, handloading supplies, a full line of accessories, and complete Gunsmithing services
In 2005, Elk Castle opened a state-of-the-art public indoor Pistol/Rifle range that has grown to be an integral part of the success of the business today.
Elk Castle is Ft. Worth’s premier firearms dealer. You can browse the selection of new, used, and consignment firearms, scopes and accessories, or special order an item. Feel free to drop off your own gun for customization or repair work at the gunsmith counter, or try out a pistol on the range BEFORE you buy it.
In January of 2009, Elk Castle opened its gun inventory to the internet, and now ships firearms to all 50 states.
