Atticus James: Main author and editor.
I started GEARS in February 2011 as a way to pass the month while I was unable to work due to major back surgery and a way to share the knowledge I have absorbed. I found a passion for firearms while in the Boy Scouts and from my late grandfather who passed on his love for firearms to me.

Old Man Lefty: Avid sailor and Reviewer
Hello, I am Old man lefty. I am Atticus James’ father. I was first introduced to the gun world by my Father-in-law. He first took me hunting and after a few trips I took down a 7 point Buck with my .30-06 1903 Springfield. Since that point, I haven’t had much interest in hunting but I found a passion for firearms.

I am proud to say that I am Atticus’ Left handed shooter who he has previously posted about. He has invited me to take up helping him with reviews from a left-handed shooters point of view.
Since ammo price are so high I don’t shoot as much as I would like to but I am an avid sailor and I am in talks with Atticus to get me a .50 caliber Browning machine gun (M2/ma-deuce) so I can mount it on the front of my sailboat in case of pirates on my favorite sailing lakes. I look forward to doing my best to bring the best left-handed review I can.

I have been working with Atticus behind the camera for a little over a year. I am also the backup left-handed reviewer when Old Man Lefty is working on other projects. I have been slowly bringing my knowledge of cameras and drones to the GEARS YouTube channel.

Matthew : Staff Writer/Reviewer

I have known Atticus for a number of years now and when he invited me to start blogging with him I jumped at the chance. My father gave me my first gun when I was 10 so he and I could hunt together on his ranch.
