The opportunity to educate the public inspires Roy Gunn and Frank Henderson. As the co-founders of The Gunn Readiness Group, they passionately teach students to be responsible firearm owners. In addition to being U.S. Army veterans, both Roy and Frank are instructors with certification from the Texas Department of Public Safety and National Rifle Association. This combination of real-world experience and professional training ensures that they can maintain a safe, controlled learning environment for students of all skill levels. The group's courses include sessions that use lecture and live-fire practice to familiarize people with handguns, rifles, and shotguns. Additionally, Roy and Frank teach concealed-carry courses, which cover the legal and experiential training that people must obtain before continuing to apply for a concealed-handgun license.
Visit one of The Peddler Show Tour's events, and you'll likely see some smiling faces among the other shoppers in attendance. It seems like there's nearly always someone grinning widely, having just discovered a perfect gift. It might be a necklace from Nan's Precious Pearls, a bottle of lotion from Salve All Natural Skin Care, or a tin of indulgent sweets from The Caramel Candy Co. Or maybe it's all of the above.
The Peddler Show Tour has been connecting Texan shoppers with boutique gifts and housewares for well over three decades, but the show has never been stronger than it is today, with 26 events hosted annually across the state. Even frequent shoppers can find something new on each excursion, since hundreds of different merchants and boutiques apply to participate. While many come for the clothing, jewelry, and household items, others stop by to sample gourmet foods or purchase a bed frame made of fudge.
Instructors train at local facilities such as Eagle Peak Shooting Range and Astro Shooting Range.
Asgard National Training Group doesn't typically rent firearms, though a small selection of rental pistols are available.

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Aprenda Con Andrea was nominated Thumbtack's best Spanish language instructor of 2015 in the Austin area. She will tailor the classes to meet the students' needs (no one gets the same curriculum ). She works 7 days a week and is flexible to students' changing schedules.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
In August of 2014, I quit my medical Spanish translating job with the state to pursue my passion of private teaching. I was teaching as a side job, but started to receive so many requests that I decided to do it full time!
What do you love most about your job?
I love helping my students succeed. Nothing makes me happier than when I see them go from failing a class to getting A's & B's. I also love working with non-traditional students (people who want to learn for their job or people looking to switch careers).
