Brian’s Blog

To say Brian is a chip off the old block would actually mean he’s two chips off of two amazing blocks. Brian has been shooting most of his life and finds great pleasure in teaching others the art and skill of the business end of a shotgun.  Send Brian a message if there are any areas of information you would like for him to respond to.
