About Us

Hello loyal Cal-Graf Design customers!


As the new owners of Cal-Graf Design, we want to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves to you.

Travis of Cal-Graf DesignTravis was raised on the family ranch in beautiful western Colorado. Growing up in the Uncompahgre Valley and the San Juan Mountains, he spent all his free time hunting and trapping with his younger brothers. As a teenager, Travis went to work for his dad’s construction company and spent his summers hand-peeling logs for the custom log homes they were building. This is still evident in his FIRM handshake! He gradually worked his way up from a laborer to a journeyman carpenter, running a framing crew on hotels and commercial buildings.

During this time, Travis participated in many projects that incorporated timber frames and timber trusses. His deep involvement in the design and building of these works of art sparked his interest in the creative side of carpentry. It was also around this time that Travis acquired his first Shiloh Sharps rifle as a bonus after a work project that had gone exceptionally well. He had been doing extensive research on black powder cartridge rifles and had “set his sights” on a Shiloh 45-70. And one day his dad/boss called him from a pawn shop in Casper, Wyoming, excitedly asking him to describe the gun he’d been dreaming of. It was that one exactly and was “love at first sight”. Although he has a safe full of smokeless rifles, they rarely leave the house anymore!

Dawna was born and raised north of Douglas, Wyoming on the ranch that her great grandparents homesteaded in the 1920s. She grew up working on the ranch, hunting, fishing, and camping with the family. Dawna had always enjoyed hunting deer, prairie dogs and predators, but didn’t really “get into guns” until she met Travis in 1994. He had taken off a year from carpentry and was working for Dawna’s great uncle as a ranch hand. Dawna enjoys shooting .45 ACP and hunting, but REALLY loves watching Travis and the kids shoot.

Purdum Family - Cal-graf Design

As you can see, the Purdum family is a shooting family. The whole family can often be found working together in the basement reloading-room or out on the range. Travis is a member of the Cheyenne Rifle and Pistol Club and a life member of the NRA. He is active in the BPCR Silhouette and 4-H shooting sports. Travis is also looking forward to participating in the Creedmoor event with his new Shiloh Sharps 45-90 which will be completed soon! (Stay tuned for pictures of this new addition to our family.)

After spending many years working away from home, chasing commercial construction, they settled in Carpenter, Wyoming, and began looking for a way to make their living together from home. Their prayers were answered when Travis noticed an ad in the SPG Black Powder Cartridge News announcing Roy’s retirement.

We are excited to be able to continue on in this legacy of old world, quality craftsmanship! We are anticipating serving you with the same superb-quality products that has become synonymous with the Cal-Graf Design name. We thank you in advance for the chance to serve you!

    Tom, you are so precisely right, Distern surely reflects
    the indoctrinated group of Americans who simply refuse
    to see that Obama’s policies will destroy the middle class,
    leaving a huge gap between the truly rich and a whole lot of dependant poor people – no
    more American Dream of the next generation pulling themselves onward and upward if they so choose to try.
