My name is Michael Embry. I have had an interest in firearms for as long as I can recall. My interest led me into taking all of the Armorer’s Training Courses that came available to me many years ago. I began building custom Glocks, 1911’s, AR10’s and AR15’s, approximately 18 years ago as a hobby. My hobby led me into working within the firearms industry. I also began Cerakoting firearms to expand the uniqueness of the firearms I enjoy working with. Additionally, my hobby allowed me to gain several certifications. I have been certified as an NRA Range Safety Officer, and NRA Pistol and Tactical Pistol Instructor. Being in this industry, I have had the pleasure and opportunity to foster great relationships with customers, who have become more like family than just a customer. Here at MJ Gunsmithing, we have built a great team of qualified personnel, who have also grown together as a family.
