Chris was my spotter at the 2008 Boomershoot. I wasn’t initially planning on going but lucked into a spot and he said he wanted to go when I started hunting for a spotter on short notice. He dropped the hammer on a a bunch of Federal Gold Medal Match. This was as I was getting ready to graduate and obviously a broke college student. He offered at the time to pay for it and I said don’t worry about it. Almost a year later when he’s back in town he offers again. I still haven’t taken to seeking reimbursement.
Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.
He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.
