February 7th, 2022:

New American Manufacture in Rochester, NY found.  Great group of guys and this should be a perfect fit for our new grip, The MF'ing Grip (Multi-Functioning Grip).

March 9th, 2021 - January 7th, 2022:

An American manufacture from Novi, MI, reached out to us to conduct business.  We spent approximately 10 months redesigning our new grip to meet their criteria, only to find out that they're owned by a private equity firm that doesn't want to engage in business with the firearms industry.  Don't forget, they reached out to us!  I think the name Gun Guardian would've given that away.

April 29th, 2021:

We've completely redesigned TS-1 to the point a new name was created, the MF'ing Grip (Multi-Functioning Grip).  Our current manufacture has been great, but unfortunately, we've surpassed their capabilities and we're now searching for a new American manufacture. 

April 27th, 2021:

Beta testing was completed by the 4 Law Enforcement Agencies, and the majority of the feedback was positive.  The two negative comments were how the grip felt (too bulky), and the agencies were concerned about the potential lack of training time for every officer.  They informed us that they wanted our grip immediately for their SWAT / Riot teams and motor units.  We informed them that we would redesign the grip to make it more comfortable and inquired about training time.  We were informed that if we could get our grips out to the local police academy's so the new recruits would be trained upon graduation, they would buy our grip for each new officer.

October 2nd, 2020:

Through the Gun Safety Consortium, Gun Guardian received 4 purchase orders from four law enforcement agencies for Beta testing.  Currently there are only 4 agencies involved in the Consortium. 


February 2nd, 2020:

February 1st, 2018:

Gun Guardian was overwhelmed with positive feedback and demand by civilians, Law Enforcement, and Military personnel for our AR rifle attachment at SHOT Show.   We are meeting with a local company to discuss the mass-production of TS-1.  Every aspect of TS-1 (Research & Development, design, engineering, parts production, assembly, packaging, and even the box) will be 100% made in the USA!! 


January 1st, 2018:

The Biometric prototypes were not completed.  We were sent a poor designed prototype that consisted of a few metal parts with R/C car servos that were hot glued into place.  The cost of this was $180,000.  This was a hard hit for us ... we're down, but not out.

March 20th, 2017:

October 14th, 2016:

Gun Guardian receives an email from a professor from the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE).  We were informed that MSOE was having a session that was focusing on "The Technology of Violence" and asked if we would attend as guest speakers.  We were happy to oblige, and we receive a standing ovation!

Gun Guardian receives an email from MetroIAF.  Founded in 1940, the Industrial Areas Foundation is the nation's largest and longest-standing network of local faith and community-based organizations.  Their representative, Joe Morris, stumbled across our website and invited us to speak at the first-ever Tech Fair focused on personalized guns and related technologies, to be held May 21 in New Rochelle, New York.

April 9th, 2012:

Gun Guardian, LLC is formed, and our website is created.

Sometime in 2011:

A friend asked a couple of questions which left me searching for an answer.  That search led me to a crafts store where I purchased modeling clay.  I spent several months molding clay to my sidearm and patrol rifle.  My search for an answer turned into a goal to build a business focused on practical firearm solutions that makes sense for gun guys.  The next few years consisted of us melting and molding plastic to make basic prototypes to test the validity of these concepts.  As full-time law enforcement detectives, not only do we have normal business hours, but we're also on-call a couple nights per week and 1-2 weekends per month.  As much as I would love to peruse this full-time, Gun Guardian is currently a "hobby".  I hope to change that within the next 10 years.
