About Boresight Solutions

A letter from the owner.

A letter from the owner.

Call me an accidental entrepreneur.

When I modified my first GLOCK, I had no intention of making it a business. I was recently out of the military and taking a lot of tactical training classes in order to maintain the skillset I’d developed while on active duty.   I wanted a solution to the factory GLOCK grip’s awkward ergonomics, which I could tell were hindering my shooting performance. I didn’t care for what was offered by the handful of professional shops that were offering that kind of work at the time, so I did it myself.

I’ve been a shooter since I was big enough to hold a gun.  Raised in the remote mountains of northwest Montana, I hunted big game to put meat on the table and competed in DCM-sponsored shooting competitions, earning the title of Distinguished Expert. My father was a gunsmith, and I helped him in is workshop.  So I had an advantage when it came to not only working on firearms, but also understanding them from an experienced end-user perspective.

That first GLOCK I modified turned out pretty good, because I went into it with a clear goal of what I was trying to accomplish and a good idea of how to do it. The other students at the tactical training classes I attended, many of whom were law enforcement, thought so too, because I immediately found myself quite busy building guns for my fellow students and local police officers in my spare time. That was in 2002.

I worked part time out of a local gun shop until my volume increased to the point that I was able to get my own place: a 500 square-foot concrete sweat box in Miami’s “Little Haiti” district. That was home to me and eventually 2 employees for many years.  During those years, Boresight Solutions established a reputation for building hard use duty/carry handguns, and earned a nationwide customer-base of discerning shooters, many who whom carry a gun for a living. When the craft of customizing polymer-frame pistols finally evolved from a marginal niche to a popular business, and demand for our work increased accordingly, I was able to move to a much larger shop (with air conditioning) in Davie FL, which is where we are located today.

We are no longer just a custom shop that builds polymer frame handguns.  We stock a variety of quality firearms, gear, tools, parts, optics, and accessories carefully chosen to meet our high standards for durability, reliability, and performance. We also stock NFA items like silencers. While we don’t stock a huge selection like a traditional retail store, we believe in every product and service we provide. Simply put: if we wouldn’t use it ourselves, you won’t find it on our service menu or our shelves.

Even though we’ve grown, my company’s core focus is still building hard-use tools that our clients can not only count on under the worst conditions, but which they are also proud to own. We strive to combine rugged reliability with refined, mature aesthetics, in a high-quality package that performs every bit as good as it looks. Every element of our work is measured against uncompromising standards, because on a duty/carry gun, there are no “unimportant” details. Every Boresight Solutions custom gun is-

Built for the Fight™

Providing experience-based, performance-driven solutions to meet shooters’ needs was how Boresight Solutions began, and is what we continue to do almost 20 years later as the recognized industry leader when it comes to custom polymer-frame pistol mods, a position established by the fact that every modification and method we pioneered has been copied in one way or another by nearly every other custom shop in this industry.

I’m fortunate to have experienced a number of challenging careers in my life, but none which I’ve appreciated as much or committed myself to so completely as this one. And as a military veteran, being entrusted with the fighting tools that good men and women trust with their life, is an honor I don’t take for granted. As such, you have my personal guarantee that my team and I will never compromise our dedication to providing you with quality products and top-tier custom firearms.

I’m often asked where the company name and logo came from. To “Boresight” a gun, as most people know, is a technique to dial the visual aiming plane in to intersect with the bullet trajectory at a known point. This is metaphor for how I made the gun’s mechanical performance intersect my vision/idea of what I thought it should be. “Solutions” is simply because my business began as a result of my ability to find solutions for my and other shooters’ needs.

The wild boar is also an archetypal symbol, immortalized in many cultures throughout history for its warrior courage. The wild boar tends to be peaceful when left alone, but is fierce and fearless when cornered or threatened. The image of the boar in our logo is meant to convey an attitude of poised readiness, but not menace. I feel that this way of viewing the world (through the eye of the boar) is a common ethos shared by the soldier, the police officer, and the vigilant armed citizen.
