Brian + lever gun = meat in the freezer

Mechanical Engineer by day, rabid… or maybe avid… outdoorsman in the off-work hours, we offered Brian a formal welcome to the Gear Report team in 2014. Brian has been lurking in the shadows of many of the reviews and adventures chronicled here at Gear Report over the past few years. Most notably, his passion for hunting has been a significant influence behind the morphing of Gear Report from a hammock and kayaking focused site to include a much broader scope of firearms, hunting gear, shooting gear, and more general outdoor stuff.

As an engineer, Brian’s take on firearms, ballistics and hunting is rather methodical and data driven. Growing up hunting in the remote and unforgiving parts of Colorado honed Brian’s nose for sorting good products from over-marketed fluff. This old rodeo cowboy brings years of real-world, in the field experience to the Gear Report team.

In our group of trouble makers, I mean adventurist, Brian is usually the level-headed voice of reason. We feel lucky to be able to share his words of wisdom with you here at Gear Report.
