About

Founded in California by Denise & Bob Rodd and recently moved to New Mexico, Call To Arms Gun Works was formed to bring you quality firearm servicing options at reasonable prices. Here you’ll find fellow shooters, hunters, trainers, collectors and proud Second Amendment supporters.

You paid a lot for your firearms and you expect a lot out of them. Whatever mission you give them; defense, sport shooting, hunting, training, plinking or collecting, you need them to be the best they can be.  That’s why we’re here.

We don’t believe quality firearm services should cost you and arm and a leg, so our prices are very competitive. We don’t want you to have to choose between getting your firearm repaired and other essentials like ammo & training.
