Author: Henry

Henry, the founder of TAKEtheGUN (TTG), learned about guns at a young age growing up in rural New Mexico on a large ranch. This is where he learned to shoot, hunt and gained respect for this wonderful tool that we all love. He grew up shooting just about every type of gun and projectile weapon. In early 2017 Henry decided to build some websites to share his love of guns with the world. Through his sites, he's hoping to help people find the information, tools & products that will make them more proficient, safe and have more fun with guns.
