At the early age of 12 years old, Bryan’s interests included competitive shooting, firearm safety and gunsmithing. Looking to turn his passion into a career, Bryan founded PDX Arsenal in 2011 at the age of 21. He began his firearm instructing career as a handgun tactics Instructor, working with local law enforcement and Oregon national guard service members. Bryan also gained a vast amount of his industry experience by working as a assembly lead and manager for some of the largest firearm manufacturers in the world like Sig Sauer Electro-Optics, Smith & Wesson corp. as well as Crimson Trace corp.
