    Meet Luke Volkmann

    I started as a customer of Luke's, and over the last couple of years we've become friends.

    I own a high definition film production company here in Houston, and on one of my visits to Luke's shop, I proposed shooting a short film about him so that people could meet the man behind this fine craftsmanship, and see how he makes his guns.

    My crew and I made a sojourn up the mountain about a year ago for principal photography, and I made a couple of return trips every time I traveled to Colorado, working on films for some of our aerospace clients. During production, I shot a lot of Luke's pistols out on the range behind the shop - Precisions, .45s with surpressors, the prototype of his 9mm, and others. He is now building me a 9mm for competition.

    Anyway, here is the finished short, which will soon be up on the VP website. I hope you like it:

    p.s. The guy in the red flannel is yours truly, shooting my daily carry piece, a stainless Combat Carry.

    Excellent work. Luke's AND the video, that is!
    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.

    Great video! He's much younger than I envisioned.

    Very cool, as I've said before, I'm lucky enough to live here in Colorado and have known Luke for a few years now too. The only downside to knowing him is I never have any money anymore! But seriously, where are you going to find a guy like Luke that builds each gun from start to finish all by himself. I'm sure there are other guys, I just don't know them. I'm having Luke work up a Colt Govt model for me now as he can get those done much quicker than a 100% Volkmann. I'm also trying to come up with the cash to get a deposit on another Volkmann as rumor has it, he's almost full for 2014. Again, nice video!

    Hi FilmMkr! Luke is amazing. I have two of his masterpieces. A Combat Carry and a 9mm government model. These pistols are sweet shooting pistols and run like Grandma's sewing machine never missing a beat!

    I really appreciate you sharing this video with us and giving me a chance to put a face to this astounding young man.
