Bill Gostomski, owner of Gostomski’s Gunsmith Service, started his gunsmithing career in the Baltimore area in 1976 at the age of 20. After a 2-year apprenticeship and another 2 years of fulltime gunsmithing he moved to Western Maryland with his wife and 6-month-old son to open his own shop in the Frostburg, MD area. Within 8 years the shop expanded to the point that a larger building and a range were needed. In 1990, after moving to a farm in Mount Savage, MD, a 2,000 square foot shop was built and a 100-yard range established.
This is the current location of the business with a fully equipped machine shop, Hoening stock duplicating machine, wood room, buffing and bluing rooms, and a storefront.

Twenty-three years after opening the doors to his first customers, Bill is proud to have his son Peter join him in the business. Pete has helped in the shop since he was 15 and after college and acquiring his machinist credentials from the Robert C. Byrd Institute, he is joining the shop as another qualified gunsmith.
