Default New gun store in Rocklin Ca

Just wanted to share there is a new gun store in Rocklin Ca called the Rocklin Armory. I know one owner is a founder of some of the other guns stores in the area. The other owner uses the name vmwerks in calguns. the owners were very respectful. Not the typical gun store.

No. This is across the street in a shopping center next door to a Chinese restaurant. These guys were not part of Tds.

I have dealt with vmwerks both on calguns and through his other non firearm associated business since 2002. He is a solid individual. I am now intrigued to check out his gun shop.

I just got back from my recon of this store and chatting with Terry for a while. He's a really nice guy and his store is fairly small but very tidy and organized as you'd expect from a brand new store. He has no reloading supplies, and has no intention of carrying any in the immediate future. His gun supply is small at the moment, but he's also only been ope for a few days!

I've been buying from Terry for years and he's a great guy.

AFAIK, owner didn't want to deal with selling guns anymore? (this might be unmitigated BS/hearsay).

Either way, this is very close to where TDS used to be (further down the road from the Rocklin road intersection, in the plaza to the left).

Shame TDS left, they used to be my favorite place to look around (and buy) before they left, barely a few months after I found them. Then CalTac went away, as well. At least we have Bass Pro and (now) Rocklin Armory. I'll try to visit there before the year is out.

FYI, we carry some reloading powder, some bullets and brass. We can order anything you need.

Hey Terry. Are you still involved with Nor Cal Gun Vault?

EDIT: Never mind, read in another thread of your parting ways. I'll be sure to visit your new store soon!

Terry, when will your website reflect your in-store inventory (guns, ammo, supplies)? It's a long trip from downtown to Rocklin without knowing what one may find.

Did not know about TDS closing up, got my VP9 from them last year.
