My name is Kevin Blackburn I am the owner and gunsmith at Leeson Arms. First, the name Leeson Arms came about while brainstorming with my wife and is in honor of my father who first introduced me to firearms and taught me about the safe use and handling of them and much more. His middle name was LEE and I am his SON so LEESON. 

About Me 

 I am a USAF Veteran life-long outdoorsman former Firefighter Paramedic and for eighteen years I owned and ran a commercial and documentary photography business called Kevin Blackburn Photography. In October of 2020 at age 46, I was in the blessed position to retire, and in the Spring of 2021 after my wife (and I apparently) decided I needed to find something to occupy my time I went back to school and studied you guessed it Gunsmithing, The mechanics of it has always interested me and seemed a good fit for a guy who spent most of his life problem solving and fixing people and things, so here I am all finished with the "official" training (See Certifications Below) and launching this venture in 2022.
