This is Will. He's a good friend, customer and student of On Target. He sent this picture in so everyone could see what he does to earn a living! Great job, Will! Keep up the wishful thinking and don't forget to wash your hands after handling all that long, hard pipe!

This is me, John, at the office working on guns. Unlike Will, I actually have work to do and stay busy. I don't have time indulge in fantasies!



Actually, this is how I clean guns when a customer opts for the "elite" service! Sure it's a bit more exspensive, but the gun gets a good old fashioned "spit shine"!

You don't need no stinkin' waiver. I already had my way with it! It was at my shop for a few weeks, in my strong, capable hands! How could I resist.... it's Italian..... and has wonderful lines and curves......!!!
Plus, did I forget to mention.... I forgot to wash it! That's right Buddy.... she went right into your hands from MINE!!!!
HAHAHAhahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa....!

Okay Kevin.... now is the time to put up or shut-up!!! Lets see a good "Kevin at rest, or play" pics that show your true self, as Will and I have!

Here's a good pic of two On Target fixtures! Pokey (upfront) is almost a daily occurrence at the shop. He's actually my future adoptive father (I'd like to be in his will.... he has lots of gun goodies and reloading equipment). His name if Cliff and he's one hell of a shooter and gun enthusiast. He was an avid hunter for most of his life and has only slowed down to old age. He's wise and has a lot of experience. When he talks, people should listen... that is of course he starts repeating one of those old stories........ hahahaaaa! Just kidding, this man has my respect! He's like the "good" stepfather i never had!
Jerry's in the back and that's not just a silly face he's making. He really does look like that. It's his everyday look! He's kinda what Forest Gump's kid would grow into except just not as smart...
Jerry is a hard worker and was a big help in the shop many-a-days! He is a gun nut and wants to know more always. He is very expensive to keep fed! He was my first helper and still does come to the shop to help us knock stuff out on a part-time basis. He'll always have a place in the On Target family!

This post was updated on .

This is my wife and I at our very first gun show in Kenner, LA! We'd like to thank everyone who has supported us and stood by us while we got On Target off the ground!
I'm an ex-police officer that worked for two sheriff's departments and come from a military family. I was raised in a gun culture and have been shooting since I was a very young child, plus I've been carrying a gun personally and professionally for the last 20 years. My love for teaching others how to shoot and be safe, led me towards becoming an NRA certified gun instructor. I coupled gun instruction, with my extensive mechanical and artistic backgrounds and came up with On Target! Gun instruction on the weekends and gun work and refinishing all week long!
My wife, Rachel, works at a local doctors office during the day and becomes a super hero by night.... nahhh... she does take care of the instruction classes and works the gun shows too. Oh yeah.... she's also the mug shot picture taker at the office.
One tid-bit of trivia..... the whole opening a gun business was "HER" idea!!!!
Ain't I a lucky guy! I get to shoot and play with guns and I get to do it with her blessing!

Yeah, Lady D! Pictures are now required.... just kidding.
I'm hoping that more people put pics of themselves up, so we can all meet each other in a whole new way online. I think it takes the impersonal nature out of the internet experience. Putting a picture with the chat, if you want to look at it that way. I'd like to see more pics up that's for sure..... "YOU TOO TYE!" They can be old pics, new pics and hopefully humorous in some sort of way.... after all, if we can't laugh at ourselves, what CAN we laugh at?
Well, I gotta get back in the shop and work on guns. We're getting ready for the Kenner gun show this coming weekend and I want to finish up the new guns we are going to have on display. I personally like to keep things "funky-fresh!" I hope everyone reading this comes out and visits if you are in the area.

Will try my best boss. But until I can get my computer back up and running I am afraid it may take some time. Right now I am doing everything on my new phone and am amazed I am able to do as much as I am. It may take awhile but I will do my best with what I got. Heck, this has to show some great dedication to duty by keepong up with things on the little screen and keyboard I am using. Rest assured it will stay on the top of my mind.

Take care,
Tye

We are sorry to hear about your computer issues and that you have to do all of your webbing by tiny screen phone tapping, but it's nice knowing that you are such a dedicated net surfing road warrior. We're keeping an eye out for you Tye. When I see one of your posts, I know you took the time to beat it out of that tiny screen on your phone and i pay attention to every word. The On Target Forums are proud to have you on board. You are a champ sir and a peach as well. We'll be patient with ya', but when ya' can, post some more pics and one of yourself here.

Hi lady D! Nice to see you! It's nice to put faces with the posts don't you think? It makes me feel like we are building a very close online gun family one member at a time. I hope this all continues to grow until we see people from all over joining in for a good time. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and I'm glad that I have Tye to help tame this growing baby! But Tye and I want more, more, more.... I know it makes Tye as happy as it does myself. He shares the same thoughts I do at wanting to help others get started and have a place that they can call their very own. And to that effect, we are glad to have you and hope that we are able to have you visit and chat for a very long time to come! C'ya Lady D!

This is Kevin everyone! He is my shop helper and he is also my nephew. This pic was taken after he had a very busy day at the shop. He normally doesn't look like this, but he really got into what he was doing this past Tuesday. He's like a son to me, and he's learning more and more about guns each day. We trained him first on chemically cleaning the guns, sand blasting and prep for coating. He's mastered them all and is very efficient at what he does. He's also performing gun cleaning work and pays mucho' attention to detail.

Hello everyone. This is Chuck! Chuck was our very first customer to knock on our door and give us a gun to coat at our new business. He has a very special place within our On Target family. When I first met him, I thought he looked, acted and sounded like Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street! But he really is a very nice person.... if he likes you! He has brought a lot of his guns to us... I think we have coated more guns for him than any other customer.
Chuck is a Vietnam War veteran who was a river rat on a gun boat. I love hearing all of his war stories.... he has a lot of action packed memories to share. But guess what he's retiring from...? He's retiring from being a pastry chef! Warrior to cupcake baker!!!! It just boggles the mind. I have eaten one of the muffin's he brought to my daughter and it was very good. Interesting! Chuck helps out at the gun shows and at the shop and we are glad to see him each time.

Well I have to say that y'all are a very friendly bunch of people and I am very happy to have found the forum! I can only argue with my fiance so much about gun stuff lol. Now I have more guys brains to pick about my new hobby lol. However, there needs to be some more females speak up too. I am going to feel like the only pink princess if the other girls don't surface lol.

My sister in law pops up....not as much as I'd like to see her..... from time to time as COLT45! Her name is Meredith and she works the gun shows with us usually on a Sunday! She has taken my concealed carry class and the LEVEL One course (she passed with good scores). She's also attending our Ladies Only class in November for self defense and crime prevention. When we swapped our forums over a lot of her posts got lost, but she keeps saying she ants to post more. i hope she does.
My wife Rachel hasn't posted in a long time and I try to get her to, but she is very busy. I'm trying to get her to post more with the female perspective.
To all ladies out there. Please drop in and share your questions and knowledge with us.
Hang in there with us Lady D and don't desert us. We need nice, gun minded ladies like yourself to set the example. Thanks!

Oh trust me I am not going anywhere! Especially if you keep posting pink guns LOL....By the way, when you do the concealed class at a show, do you do the range portion too or how does that work?
