Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I grew up with a passion for cars, the outdoors, and firearms. I spent three years active duty in U.S. Army Special Operations, and three years with the National Guard building a solid foundation with firearms. After that, I spent time working with an experienced gunsmith learning the ropes and honing my gunsmithing skills. Recently, despite some difficult odds, my wife and I are working hard putting my dream into motion as we announce the opening of Oregon Firearm Coatings & Specialties. I have my Cerakote certification completed, and I am eager to help with your firearm needs.
