About Maxwell Gates

Max Gates has had a gun in his hand since he could walk. To be fair, for a few years it was a cap gun. Growing up in the midwest, Max was raised as an upland game hunter. In 2011 Max was introduced to the joys of modern weapons and never looked back. Like most folks, Max cut his teeth in the woods practicing techniques he learned from DVDs, but since 2014 has been voraciously consuming any professional training he can get. Max started shooting with Nick in 2015 and has continued shooting and training with him since.
