Default C&R Gunshops off of the 395

Taking a trip up to see family in Wellington, NV. Wanted to know if anyone knew of any cool gunshops with C&Rs along the way.

Owner Dan Linn is a great guy and great gunsmith, bought from and sold to him as well as when I still lived in Tahoe he received my C&R's for me and charged a 20 dollar transfer fee. He's CA friendly, usually had large grouping of C&R, antiques and moderns in his old shop which was small. I'm no longer in that area, his shop may be larger now that he's moved to his new location.
There are others on Calguns that frequent his shop maybe they'll chime in.

Been pimping fer Sunrise Pass every time people ask or post they were going to Reno, I surmise very few take the time to run down there to visit this great shop, their loss.

Dan bought a number of firearms from me at fair prices, plus I was able to purchase an M1 Carbine fer $650 (on consignment) that had sold on the CMP Auction in 2008 for $850! That same Carbine would definitely go for north of $1000 today due to the original and rare parts.

I went there and spoke with Dan, he was very friendly and had a nice assortment of C&Rs all priced well. I ended up picking up a Colt M1917 for a good price. It's been reblued, but I have a friend who can parkerize it and the bore is good. Should be a good shooter, thanks again!

Oh nice!

Been trying to tell people to visit Dans shop, glad someone, non local, actually did took the time to visit and found out I speak the truth!

In his old smaller shop he had 5-6 loaded gunsafes, always was an education to see some of the stuff he had, including a number of antiques I'd never hear of or seen before.

Congrats!!!!

He has a machine shop in the "back room" bet ya can't guess what he was contracted to manufacture a couple years ago when I last visited him?

I'm sure he probably does a lot of custom machine work. But at the time I asked him they were making "vibrators for horses"! Told that to a colleague of mine at work that is a retired bronc rider, he told his wife and she wanted Dan's address NOW!
