Map and Reviews

The Trading Post was founded by Terry Gillette in Van Meter Iowa in 1996 to fill a need for Gunsmithing and Sporting Goods in the local area. After his retirement from the military the business was moved to its present location in Saguache Colorado and is operated by Terry and his wife Carla.

Terry's expertise in the related subject mater began in 1973, with hunter safety, gunsmith and marksmanship training. His passion for hunting, fishing and shooting have proven to be a solid foundation for numerous successful positions over the last 40 years, such as a gunsmith or manager for a number of retail sporting good stores and the eventual retirement from the military after 25 years as an Ordnance Officer. Carla also shares many of the same passions for the outdoors and shooting related activities and is also a retired from the military.

The shop is a customer friendly environment that strives to maintain the values and service of days gone by. In addition to Gunsmithing, the shop also carries equipment for hunting, shooting, fishing, camping and military surplus. There are also a number of early Americana sporting good western and military displays to provide a more pleasurable environment and preserve our nation's heritage.
