Professional Training, Knowledge, & Modification
My name is Tony Garrett II. I founded Ballistic Custom, LLC to share my passion for guns with anyone who was interested. My wife watched me doing a stippling job on my XD-9 and told me it was beautiful. Before I had even finished the job, there was a Tax ID with my new companies name on it. Ever since joining the Army I have loved firearms, and all that can be done to them. They are tools that can be used to create or destroy. They are neither good nor bad, just a vessel for a creative mind. Every class given, every gun modified, and every shot fired is spawned from the belief that guns, their design, and their employment are all art forms.
Forged for Combat
2 tours in Iraq and 4 tours in Afghanistan with the 75th RGR RGT have shaped my development as a shooter. Trying to be the best was an everyday occurrence, and I was surrounded by some of the best in the business. The military wasn't just a job. I loved what I did and looked forward to going back every day. It took all the work out of it, and with that mindset, I was able to excel. Looking for a little more personal development, I went the "Q" and became a Bravo because I couldn't get enough weapons and tactics. I sucked up as much knowledge as I could and realized that learning never stops. I've spent an undisclosed amount of time in the regiment(I can't give all of the details), and I've done what I could to better myself every day. I learned that I have a passion for instructing as well and that love pushes me the hardest. If I can't pass my knowledge along to my children and the community, what's the point? So through my company, I will realize my goal.
