So why the name “Markley’s”?

George Markley sold guns out of his house in the late 1970’s and Early 1980’s, eventually establishing a store front in Scotts Valley. In 1984, Scotty and Ward bought the little store and ran it for over 10 years. Eventually they expanded and opened up our current location in Watsonville,CA in 1994. After almost 25 years of successful business it was time to retire.

In 2008 Santa Cruz natives Chris and Harley bought the Range bringing almost 50 years of military service and training experience with them, along with over 30 years of small business ownership. As a major gun enthusiast and competition shooter, Chris picked up where Scotty and Ward left off taking Markley’s to the next level by increasing product lines, inventory, and of course, continued great customer service.

Here we are more than 15 years later still going strong. You may have noticed some changes around the shop in the last few years as we brought in new fixtures, along with some new products and staff. And now aan updated website! COVID hit us hard, but we are working to get back to where we once were!

We would like to thank all of you who continue to keep coming back and welcome you if its your first time here with us. Without you, our loyal customers we would not be where we are today.
