Our Founder, Austin's Story

Austin was born and raised in Moberly, Missouri.  Coming from a lineage of American Farmers, Austin has an admiration and respect for nature, the great outdoors, as well as a strong work ethic.  Growing up, Austin developed a love for camping, fishing, and hunting.  His love and respect for firearms began as a youth when he got his first Daisy 880 Powerline BB/Pellet Rifle.  From that first BB hitting an empty IBC Root Beer can on a fence post, he was forever hooked.'
 
Prior to starting AK's Guns and Ammo, Austin enjoyed a successful career in the Technology Industry for 25 years.  In the 90's he helped connect large companies to the Internet for the first time, establishing email services, implementing firewalls, and helping large companies establish their presence on the World Wide Web as it was called it back then.  In 2000, Austin's focus turned to Unified Communications.  As a Pre-Sales Engineer, he advised and consulted many world wide organizations such as H&R Block, Hallmark, FedEx Corporation, Bass Pro, CSX, Harley Davidson, Ashley Furniture, Citrix, Jet Blue Airlines, Continental Airlines, General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Kimberly-Clark, Kohl's Department Stores, Ferrel Gas, BBVA Compass Bank, Commerce Bank, and UMB Bank to name a few.

Austin is also a strong advocate in Emergency Preparedness.  As a General Class Amateur Radio Operator, Austin has been involved with providing emergency communications assistance in a number of Disaster Relief efforts over the years.  Austin believes in having a game plan in place to protect and provide for your loved ones in the event of a natural disaster or other emergency event.
 
In 2016, Austin decided to pursue his entrepreneurial spirit by combining his passion/knowledge for firearms and the shooting sports, with his professional skills in consultation.  Austin enjoys great satisfaction in listening to his customer's needs and helping them achieve their goals.
