Our business was founded in 1986 by Jerry Dove Jr., in the back of his garage. Jerry, at the time was working as a machinist and was shooting competitively, but only built guns as a hobby. Jerry quickly realized that firearms were his true passion and left his job to pursue a career in the firearms and shooting industry, taking with him his extensive knowledge as a machinist. Jerry opened Dove's Custom Handguns and for the first ten years worked exclusively on pistols, specifically 1911's for competitive use. As his business began to take off, it was clear that Dove's Custom Handguns had the potential to grow into something much more. So in 1997, we constructed a 3,000 square foot building and re-named the business, Dove's Custom Guns, LLC. As business grew, and the custom firearm market started to take off, it was clear that our business needed a more substantial building to house a full machine shop, dedicated solely to custom gunsmithing. So in 2004 we moved to our current location, a 5,000 square foot building, allowing us to meet all of our customers' needs.
Owner and gunsmith, Jerry W. Dove Jr. has shot competitively for close to 30 years and competed in almost all areas of competitive shooting such as; S.A.S.S., USPSA, IPSC, PPC, 3 Gun, NRA Action Pistol, and NRA Bullseye. He has won state championships in several different divisions and amassed an impressive trophy case.
