Hi! I’m Ivan,

I grew up spending a lot of time outdoors. Lots of backpacking and camping trips as well as extensive international travel… Eventually I landed in the Marine Corps in the late 90’s, spending my time in the infantry. After a hiatus from the military to race the Baja 1000 a couple times, I got myself another DD-214 with more time spent in the Air Force. Departing that I wound up with large metropolitan Police Department for a spell, and eventually landed in the Security Contracting world.

The one constant through all of these experiences was gear and weapons. From rifles, pistols, plate carriers, to holsters, to tac-lights to hard shells… Having spent time in a lot of environments and with the opportunity to field a lot of equipment, I have grown fond of well made gear and firearms.

I figured I would share some of the knowledge and experience. So here we are…
