About Me

A Renaissance Man of technology and Firearms

I’m Kevin Davies, a self-taught technology enthusiast and experienced firearms professional.

I took to all things “geek” at a very young age when my father brought home our very first desktop PC running DOS. Ever since then I’ve been teaching myself everything I can about technology and computers. I took every computer course available through the school system and continued learning in my free time.

Fuelled by my time in the firearms industry, I developed a passion for sport shooting, tactical gear, and firearms training. This lead me to a job with Brink’s Canada to get some experience as an “Armed Professional”. I am very knowledgeable on these subjects and enjoy teaching these skills and offering advice to others.
