Traveling the world exposed Andy to different points of view and belief systems around the world and he learned the value of what we have here in the United States. Andy saw what a government could do to a people and realized that the rights guaranteed to us by our State and Federal Constitutions were a precious thing that could be lost if we aren’t willing to stand up and defend them.

After purchasing his first firearm, he learned as much as he could about firearms, including the laws that restrict our use of them. He is now a firearms instructor and was one of the first 10 instructors credentialed by the USCCA in the state of Nebraska. Andy focuses on the basics and teaching others the importance of safety and personal defense in the modern world.
