Growing up in Mississippi guns have always been a big part of my life. Whether it was hunting for snakes and turtles by the pond, or going on a weekend hunting trip with my dad, our way of life has had a big impact on where I am today. I look back on my childhood and it amazes me at how truly blessed I am. From Canton Academy to paramedic school God has led me on an amazing journey. After graduating as a paramedic and working on an ambulance for a while I was offered a position working offshore as a safety medic. The offshore schedule allowed me time for a hobby which at that time was buy, sell, and trade vintage firearms. Everything about war era guns interest me including the design, different materials used, craftsmanship, and most of all I love holding a piece of history in my hand. With vintage firearms still being my passion I started getting several requests for machine guns and fully auto firearms. This opened the door into the NFA world and from there I fell in love with all the high end toys and accessories! After being laid off in March of 2016, I already had a good foothold in the firearms industry so I began my journey. Guns-N-Gear was opened to the public in September 2016. With all the amazing things happening I am really looking forward to seeing what God has planned for our future!
