Author Eric Hung

Hi, I'm Eric Hung and I got into guns when I was around 25 and started with YouTube videos, scouring forums, and eventually taking a bunch of classes.  I soaked up as much information as I could online, at competitions, and from tinkering in my workshop.  I became my group's "gun guy" and everyone who had questions came to me.  And now I hope to answer some of yours!
