I have been writing firearms and outdoor material of over 50 years to date. I have hunted across the world including Russia and a great deal of time professional hunting in Australia. I currently live in the American west and hunt all across the Black Hills of South Dakota, and the Big Horn mountains. I have specialized much of my work as a load developer in shotguns and rifles. I have run a small company that builds suppressor barrels of my design, and load tests for writing purposes and consulting. My commercial names include Ballistics Research & Development / Metro Gun Systems.TM. Web site www.metrogun.com.
Currently I write for several International publishing companies, and write columns for Midwest Outdoors and Outdoorsmen in South Dakota. I write feature material for Shotgun Sports, a leading shotgun magazine here in the USA, and I also write feature material for Gun Digest books, magazine, and the big book Annual each year. As a final note I write field hunting events and weapons reviews for Predator X magazine, and product reviews for Huntingmark.com,
In the 1980's I work out a system for measuring the exact velocity of shotgun pellets, and after that the industry started listing the muzzle velocity of their loads on the ammunition boxes. I have written four books with three on rifle shooting at long range, and the fourth of Shotgunning. Some are still listed and marketed through Amazon,Com currently.
Also with a degree in commercial and art education Bachelors degree University Of Minnesota, and 26 years as a police officer Minnesota. Firearms instructor in training unit rank of sergeant. IN terms of visuals have always done all my one photo work which has become a trademark regarding my advancements in the field of gun writing.

I first went to school to study gunsmithing because I was fascinated by the intricacy, art, and mechanics of firearms and the design process behind them. I love purposeful and precise design, whether it's a custom target rifle that shoots dime sized groups or a gloss-blued gun with finely chosen accents and woodworking. I started this site to share my love for these things, and my journeys in continuing to gunsmith and in focusing in the skill of shooting sports.
