Celeste’s Bio will be posted soon if we can get her to create one. It’s just hard to get any work out of her. She does make a mean Green Chile Stew though!

Jacob & Jeffrey BradleyJeffrey

Retail Sales Associate

Tactical Safety Institute / Bracken Guns

Yes…they are twins. If you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them both. Their not old enough to have a Bio and as poor college students, they’re trying to work and get their business degree through Texas State University. Both aspire to eventually kick their dad out the door and assume the business. Best of luck with that one!
