I am a son-of-a-farmer from Minnesota. Therefore I learned the rewards of a positive work ethic and the value of a dollar at a young age. My high school & Bachelor of Science degrees were completed in nearby Fargo, North Dakota. Eventually my love of working outdoors led me to work for twenty-two years for a small and large asphalt paving contractor. In those years I logged one million miles hauling asphalt & heavy equipment in the Dakota's and surrounding states. Four years as a trucking/safety manager was challenging as well. I am proud to have served these employers for all those years! For twelve years I managed a relatively large collectible gun inventory for a rather small Minnesota dealer. I have been collecting guns for about twenty-five years and am now engaging in the business of helping others in this adventurous and rewarding hobby. I look forward to working with you and encourage you to peruse the offerings within this site.
