I spent five years in the United States Navy serving in the detention centers in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, followed by serving in an Expeditionary Squadron deployed out of San Diego. After serving in the Navy, I spent several years as a Federal Correctional Officer in Lompoc, CA. I am also currently a Probation Officer in Idaho. I received my FFL and started selling firearms as a hobby out of my house in 2015 and earned multiple instructor and armorer certificates along the way. Now, I'm living the dream while unapologetically supporting the Second Amendment. If I'm not at the shop, you'll find me with my beautiful wife and our 4 boys, out at the range, out in the mountains, and serving our church.

Ever since he was young, Gavin has had an interest in firearms of all sorts. This originated due to some of his memories with his father, who would frequently take Gavin shooting alongside him and teaching him about the overall safety and mechanics of firearms. With these youthful experiences, Gavin has gained more and more interest and knowledge as he has aged. As he has gotten older, Gavin has begun to research and learn more about the firearms world, which is how he came to be at Quick Response Firearms!
