Joe Dawson is a long-time firearm aficionado and former sailor who now runs Bruiser Industries.  CPO (SOC) Dawson, USN Retired, spent the bulk of his career in NSW (Naval Special Warfare) but he has long-since promised to never write an autobiography or tell-all book of high-speed derring-do. He's a Padrón smoking, bourbon-loving, a wrench-turning gearhead who shoots PRS, ELR, 3-Gun, IDPA, and USPSA when time permits. During his career, Dawson deployed to Afghanistan, Iraq, and various AOs in the Pacific. From 2011 to 2013 he was the lead PO in charge of Land Warfare Training, and later ran the Naval Special Warfare [SEAL] Sniper School for 3 years.
