About Us

Hailing from the quiet northwoods of rural Wisconsin, Forest and Shanna have been married since 2002.

We have a passion for all things rugged and outdoors. We are knife and firearms enthusiasts and collectors. We believe you should always be prepared and can never have too much knowledge.

Together we have one son who is following in our foot steps and loves the outdoors, the shooting sports, and caring for his little flock of sheep and goats.

As two of the first Wisconsin concealed carriers, we have always had a keen interest in personal safety and the fine art of self defense.

When we are not blogging or at our other jobs, we enjoy traveling, hunting, shooting sports, hiking, geocaching, and spending time together as a family.

As a small family business, we appreciate your patronage and hope that you have an enjoyable experience here with us.
