Published: Thursday, October 11th, 2012
The people of Edgemont and the surrounding area now have a new gun shop and years of experience from which to buy guns, gun accessories or just enjoy a cup of coffee and some hunting talk.
The Gun Vault, owned by Brent and Karen White of Custer, officially opened Aug. 1, with a grand opening held Sept. 1 with over 150 people in attendance. The Whites, who also manage Stonemeadow Ranch, have been thinking about opening a gun shop for years. They decided to put their plans into action when Stonemeadow was put up for sale recently.
“Brent has been into hunting for over 30 years, from the time he was a young teenager,” Karen said.âï¿½ï¿½“Working with guns, no matter what kind, is Brent’s passion, and he loves a challenge.”
Brent has also worked as a hunting guide for the past eight years at Stonemeadow Ranch and has competed in all kinds of shooting sports from cowboy action to black powder long range. He is also a reserve deputy for the Custer County Sheriff’s Department. For the past few years, he has been taking online courses on gunsmithing and will continue to do so for the next few years.
