A Day in the LIfe

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be an armorer—or more specifically the NRA Publications' armorer—you came to the right place. NRA Publications is your first-hand source for the latest and greatest industry offerings. As the division armorer, it is my duty to maintain our inventory of firearms, optics and gear. Every firearm that you see reviewed in print and online first passes through my office, so it is my privilege to give you a sneak peek even before an editor gets his hands on it. This is My Job…

My day usually starts fairly early—65 miles away I begin the journey into the abyss of one million gas-guzzling crazed rats looking for their slice of cheese. Fortunately upon arrival at NRA Headquarters, my slice starts off with a trip to the “Vault” and a confused stare into the darkness as I gather my rat-race thoughts and feel for the light switch. I am sure most of you are pondering, “What’s in the vault?” Well, maybe one of these days I’ll be permitted to take you there. But for now, I will just close the door and head up to my office with the “cart” and how could I forget…guns.

Guns and gear aren’t the only things on my cheese platter—my job includes managing our Tech Range, Tech Shop, Office Shop, Dope Bag reviews, assisting Mark Keefe with American Rifleman TV, and list goes on and on. I know—your patience is dwindling and you want to see some guns, scopes (and, of course, Mark’s good looks), but for now I will have to draw this to a close and get back to work. The photo lab is looking for a feature gun for February’s issue of American Rifleman. Stay tuned to “This Is My Job” and we will pick up where I left off…
