Since 2013 I’ve been listening to lots of gun podcasts, and then started seriously working on designing guns, and began working part time for JARD Inc. in Sheldon, IA. I met up with Matt from Geeks Gadgets and Guns at a training class hosted by Paul Lathrop, and started co-hosting GGG, and we began posting videos on our LFD Research youtube channel not long after that.”
