For more than 75 years, Olinville Arms Co. has accommodated New York's law-enforcement team with high-quality uniforms, equipment, and shooting practice space.

In addition to safety and skills courses, Olinville's staff revamps outmoded firearms with gunsmithing services such as barrel installation, re-bluing services, and general repairs.

With a background in studying guns of different sizes, calibers, and eras of history, Frank Melloni turned his passion into a career by founding Renaissance Firearms Instruction. But it's perhaps his appearance on the History Channel's Top Shot that his customers find the most impressive. At Renaissance, along with his fellow instructors, Frank demonstrates proper handling of weaponry in eight classes. Some of these sessions follow NRA course outlines while others were designed by Frank himself, including one on familiarization with historic guns. For time spent outside the classroom, they direct students to several local ranges with which Renaissance Firearms Instruction is affiliated.
