About Me

I am a third generation competitive shooter, metalworker and gunsmith. Trained as a toolmaker, I have worked over 33 years in a variety of shops devoted to precision craftsmanship. I have been a licensed gunsmith since 1980, carrying on a tradition started in the early 1930's by my late grandfather, Charles C. Johnson, a riflesmith of wide renown in his day, and my late father, a mechanical engineer who made a hobby of gun work, building up his own precision target pistols. I am an active competitor in smallbore rifle, highpower rifle, conventional pistol, and in Scheuzen rifle matches.
