From Tamara: I’m 43, a native Floridian, grew up in the country atmosphere, learning to shoot from my Dad for defense/protection from rattlesnakes, intruders, etc. and was taught gun safety all a the same time. Always had horses so I’ve shown competitively all my life and just started shooting competitively in the last year or so. I graduated from University of Florida with my first bachelors degree and then went for a second in nursing, which is what I’ve been doing career-wise for the last 12 years.
I wanted to get more involved with guns so I joined TWAW after seeing their information on FB. I’ve been an active member of the Gainesville chapter (and a co-leader) for nearly 3 years now. I am also a member of A Girl and A Gun and we are building a new chapter in Gainesville currently. I am single, recently divorced, and have a great small country farm outside of Gainesville, FL where my horse and two dogs live with me.

From its first product, the Semi auto Browning 1919, TNW Firearms has grown to provide an array of products expanding into the shooting sports and national defense markets.

From Mike:” I was born in a small town in Indiana in 1960, and graduated from high school in 1979. There were always plenty of opportunities to hunt, fish, and shoot so I grew up around incredible opportunities to be in the outdoors. Always loved fishing the most. There wasn’t much opportunity for work other then the steel mills and that wasn’t for me so I joined the Air Force in 1980. I spent a little over 20 years In Service and retired in 2000. I always found time to fish or hunt in between working and deploying. I am an avid gun collector and shooter more of a handgun guy than rifles. In 2000 we moved to Arizona, settled in the West Valley, and made it our home”.
