Matt Gardea –

  • Position: Buyer and amateur shit talker looking to turn pro
  • CST Graduate and Government hater
  • Favorite Firearm: Sig P226
  • About Me: Matt hails from the Midwest and enjoys cheap beer and great BBQ. He once lied about his Birthday to swindle free Burnt Ends from Jack Stack. He then morphed into a Bald Eagle and busted through the front door. Looking back, he could see the patrons and staff saluting in awe. He then landed at an Army Recruiter’s office and dropped a freedom egg. The Recruiter was so impressed he sent Matt to Fort Benning, GA for Infantry school. After delivering democracy to sand people for a few years. He chose to learn the mysterious ways of gunsmithing and attended The Colorado School of Trades. Matt doesn’t like to be poor, so he started looking for a job in the firearm industry and was offered a position at DCF Guns. He dislikes beatniks, Hippies, and the Far left. Matt believes history started on April 19, 1775 everything else before that was a mistake.
