"August is my weapons consultant, my 'Gunny', 'The Grand Master' - the 'NASA of ballistics'."

"For those of us who are firearm enthusiasts, having a compatriot like August Crocker is both a necessity and for me a luxury. During the past 10 years August has helped me in the rifle, pistol, and shotgun arenas. I have yet to find a dilemma Mr. Crocker cannot solve.
Unfortunately, artisans with his level of expertise seem to be disappearing. Whether he is dealing with a matched set of Purdeys, a Wilson Combat Supergrade, or a .338 Lapua rifle, August is the expert. He even made his own set of tools to repair my Beretta SO6.
Not surprisingly, his talent extends to restoring vintage automobiles in his "spare time" I'm fortunate to have a gunsmith like August as my 'go-to guy'. So, will it be for you."

"August is a highly skilled gun source, fitter, and instructor. I was interested in purchasing a shotgun for hunting clays. August took the time to find the right gun for me and then custom fit the gun for my size and shooting style. He was able to make several adjustments as he observed me shooting a number of times and he achieve a perfect fit for my shooting style and level. It has made a tremendous difference in my ability to consistently hit clay targets. August has also been working with me on my shotgun skills, approach, form, and accuracy. He is a very caring and patient instructor who delivers great results and improvement for any level shooter. His knowledge and skill level are very impressive but more impressive is his ability to teach others the sport of shooting. It is a pleasure working with August - he makes shooting so much more enjoyable. I highly recommend August!"

"I purchased my Caesar Guerini from August and as I focused on improving, I knew I needed help with my gun. He advised me on mount, foot position, and the all of the things that would have an effect on the fit. When the work was completed, I came away with a gun that was far more comfortable to shoot and natural in balance and point. My gun fits me perfectly - I know the rest is now up to me!"

"August is an expert in multiple forms of firearms. He is well-schooled in pistols, rifles, and shotguns. He has competed in all the above disciplines and understands the importance of the proper gun fit that will allow customers to meet their goals. He is observant, patient, meticulous, and will make sure the gun and fit are correct before that gun ever leaves his shop. He has fit all of my personal competition guns for the past 15 years and has been an invaluable source of information when looking for a new gun. He will give you great value for your money and service that will not be surpassed."
