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.

Elk Castle offers services for Estate Liquidation, Warranty Gunsmithing, Appraisals, and Insurance Claims. The business has always taken pride in offering courteous, professional service, as well as being honest in educating the gun buyer.

Workers were OK. I don't like their safety policy. They let two people who said before they were allowed to go into the range "we're novices we need your help" go into the range area without a range master, with firearms and ammunition. Luckily they were smart enough to wait for a range master to help them, but if they were idiots they could have caused a catastrophe. They charge too much for targets. They give you the first one free but charge 1.25 after that. Lane time is not expensive. So that is a plus.

Been shooting here for over year now never had a problem until today, been shooting the same ammo the last three times I've been there, and today they said I couldn't. I drove 20 minutes to come to this range that'll be the last time. Make sure you have only namebrand ammo when you come to this place or buy there's. "yeah you can't shoot that ammo here but if you want to buy ours you can." No thanks I'll go to shoot smart from now on nicer ranges and better prices.

Purchased a gun from an individual and had it shipped from this facility and shipped to my FFL in TN. They sat on the gun for 4 days before it shipped and I was unable to use it in the charity skeet match that I was putting on. They seemed to have no concern whatsoever with the delay. I would not buy anything from this facility due to the lack of service they provide.

My experience was anything but pleasant. I went to the gun shop with a problem with a shotgun I couldn't get back together after cleaning. A sales person I met was as stumped as I was and asked a gunsmith for assistance. The gunsmith not only rudely and indignantly refused to help, he informed me he had spent two years learning his trade and would clean the shotgun for a price. I explained that I would pay for his time just to observe the procedure. He steadfastly refused. I was incredulous concerning his hatefulness more than anything. I walked out of the store and wouldn't go back in there for free guns or ammo. The salesperson was as stupefied as I was by the display of poor behavior by the gunsmith.

They have a pretty good selection of new and used guns. The prices are a bit high, I think, but they do have sales periodically. Don't wear sandals if you want to shoot. It's not posted but it is their policy. The workers are generally friendly and knowledgeable. One weekday evening I was the only person on the range and the range officer was extremely helpful and patiently recommended some great guns for me to try out. There are Groupons for the shooting range.

Best affordable pistol range in town, if you are shooting long guns I would recommend Alpine over these guys. Price is pretty decent for a small shop.

Finally ! A company with the customers satisfaction as their #1 concern. On the few occasions that to no fault to Elk Castle, a scope ring, or other accessory was wrong or missing, one email had the wrong or missing accessory corrected and shipped out immediately ! This is rare indeed, as rare as the courteous and speedy response. Elk Castle is my #1 sports outfitter !

I found the place too tight inside and not much room to move around.. I thought the booths were too close to each other. A guy with heavy caliber rifle blasted and some shrapnels hit my friend in the other side of the booth.
