Welcome! Curious about the origins of ArmedCandy?
Here's the story:
ArmedCandy began with one girl, Gabby Marcuus, who was curious about firearms. She had lots of questions but was forced to hunt for each answer. She knew she couldn't be the only one. So she started collecting and sharing her discoveries, and a community soon grew.
As ArmedCandy developed, so did Gabby's knowledge of shooting and the related industry. She began to realize that the world of firearms lacked the products female shooters desired. So Gabby took her background in design and her excitement about guns, and got down to business.
ArmedCandy is a source of information, discussion and fun through the blog, FaceBook page and other social media. Though growing, ArmedCandy strives to keep the perspective of an everyday girl. Additionally, Gabby is preparing to open The ArmedCandy Shop which will offer products that are hand selected or specifically designed for the ArmedCandy community.
Gabby Marcuus- Founder, Writer, Editor, Web Designer...Though born a New Yorker, Gabby loves her adopted southern home.
