Eldridge is the heavily armed proprietor of New Reno Arms in 2241.



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 estabilishment 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 occassionally. 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.

The inside of his shop carries NCR propaganda posters, while his room holds an NCR History Holodisk, indicating that if he's not a supporter, he at least doesn't mind.

Interactions with the player character

Eldridge will pay well for a laser pistol, once the player mentions them to him. He also maintains a separate weapon stock from the usual fare exclusive to Made Men of one of the New Reno families and has a Voice Recognition Module for sale.

Coming in at night will turn him hostile.
