Danny Drye
Shop Owner


Danny retired from the Durham Fire Department with 30 years of service in November 2007. His dad was a big game hunter and he grew up with a love of the outdoors and hunting, and shooting sports have always been a big part of his life. His wife Carol shares these interests and they enjoy shooting and hunting together when they have time. When Danny retired, he and Carol decided to open their own gun shop. Danny is also a NRA Certified Instructor.
