Almost constantly covered with grease, Eldridge is the resident gun nut of New Reno. He has a massive weapon collection on the walls he's extremely fond of and continuously seeks out ways to expand it. He is knowledgeable in all matters even remotely pertaining to firearms and knows a great deal about pre-War military technology, identifying suits of power armor on the spot.
His establishment sells weapons to all crime families with the exception of the Salvatores, who get their laser weapons from the Enclave. Individual clients and groups are particularly welcome, although Eldridge can become annoyed if someone comes in asking for swords or crossbows, ignoring his considerable collection.
On his time off, Eldridge goes gang hunting occasionally. He lives with three dogs: Packard, Buck and Missy and has a family - the status of his wife is unknown, but he has at least two children.
