Dury's tradition of great gunsmithing goes back to the late 1800's when John M. Dury opened a small gun shop in downtown San Antonio. In 1959, John L. Dury started Dury's Gun Shop, fitting recoil pads in a small shop behind his parents house. Now David Dury carries on the great family tradition into the 21st century with the same quality that has come to be expected of a "Dury Gunsmith". Also, David Dury has started his own custom line with the D. Dury Custom Rifles, guaranteed to shoot one half inch 3 shot groups from 100 yards.
Mike Whalen has joined Dury's Gun Shop with a degree from Trinidad State Junior College of Gunsmithing in Colorado and has 25 years experience in gunsmithing and blueing.
