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.

"This has become my new favorite gun range!"
"You do have to buy their ammo, of course."
"If you're wanting to shoot something other than a pistol go somewhere else."

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.

We love this range! Everyone is so friendly and helpful. We take lessons there from Jan Price of PCTA Firearms and she is an AWESOME instructor. Very patient and knowledgable.

Awesome place, very affordable if you come and rent guns and the ammo price arent too bad. I showed up with a groupon but even if I didn't have a groupon I'd still come back. The range allows for shotguns and pistols, I think I heard the safety officer stating they didn't allow rifles. I was pretty new to shooting and they guys took their time to show me the basics. I will definitely return.

My go to gunsmith, quality work and fair prices. The gun range isn't bad and never a wait. If you're wanting to shoot something other than a pistol go somewhere else.

I hated the amount of paper work, the waiting time and the amount of verification. I don't mean to just get the gun, I know it should be a little difficult but this place is too difficult to deal with. I recommend any other Gun place other than this one.

This has become my new favorite gun range! The staff are very friendly, helpful and knowledgable. The range is excellent, well lit and maintained. I've had issues with other ranges not having enough A/C in the summer time but climate control is not an issue here. The range fees are cheaper than most as well. I bought a used Springfield XDm .40 and got a great price. They even installed the Tru Glo sights I bought for free. Gun prices are better than most shops including big box stores like Gander Mountain and you can't beat the selection. If you're in the market to purchase a firearm ask for Brandon and he will hook you up!
