Inside the Cal-Tex Gun Barn

Danny Fulgencio

The Gun Barn is a haven for gun lovers. Firearms fill nearly every room. Semi-automatic pistols line a couple of walls and cover a few tables in the front room of the gun shop. Bolt-action and semi-automatic rifles — some for hunting, others for sport — fill another two rooms. Shotguns are on display in the aisles, ARs stand on another wall. John McPhate has surrounded himself with hundreds of guns and continues to grow his stock with each passing month.
