Hello, my name is Justin and I'm the owner/operator of Imperium Gunsmithing, this blog will give you a little info on me in addition to industry related news/topics of discussion. I was born in Denver, CO and have lived in CO my entire life. The mountains were just too pretty for me to ever even think about moving elsewhere. Since I was young I have always been an outdoor enthusiast. Typically it was fishing or trying to catch the biggest bullfrog to scare my sisters with. In my 20's I discovered a new love and that was hunting and shooting. It has become an intense love affair. After working in the retail firearms industry for several years I decided in August of 2013 to enroll in the gunsmithing program at the Colorado School of Trades. I started classes in April of 2014 and graduated in August of 2015. Attending school only depended my love of firearms and I'm happy to say that I have found my forever home in Gunsmithing. I love the challenges it brings and the creativity I employ to meet my customers needs! Thanks for the read!
