Hello and thanks for stopping by my page! My name is Charlie Vance and I’m the founder of Vance Arms. I’m a Navy Veteran and firearms enthusiast. I started doing Cerakote as a hobby on my own guns and for my friends. It didn’t take very long for me to realize I wanted to turn this into a business. Cerakote is hands-down the best coating on the market for firearms (and other things) for a variety of reasons. Cerakote is a great product but more importantly, it is art. Every piece that comes into the shop leaves as a one-of-a-kind piece of art. I absolutely love taking a customer’s vision and turning it into a reality for them. Whether it’s some new crazy camouflage pattern, or a pink cow – if you can dream it, I can probably make it happen.
I’ve also taken the time to get factory trained and certified through Cerakote’s official certified applicator program. There is absolutely a correct way to apply Cerakote and this is very important to achieve the proper protective qualities of the product. Rest assured that if you trust me to apply a custom paint job on your gun, it will be done correctly. For me, making folks happy is my number one reason for doing this and my goal is 100% satisfaction.
