Bob, an NRA-certified pistol instructor and range officer, is a native Montanan that has spent his life hunting, shooting, and just generally being outdoors. He was formerly a ranch hand, a green chain operator, a bounty hunter, and a private investigator, and is currently a process server and a firearms instructor. Bob is also a prolific writer, having penned hundreds of firearms and hunting articles and twenty-four books to-date, both fiction and non-fiction. When he’s not busy writing, filling the freezer, playing with his nephew, or teaching a class, he enjoys spending time at the range testing loads for his latest acquisitions. His wildcat, the .411 Ryan Express, has proven itself effective on big game throughout North America and Africa.
