Ryan grew up in a home where shooting, hunting and the outdoors were central to the family. Part of his childhood was spent in Alaska, where he developed his love of the outdoors.
Ryan hunts deer, elk, doves, ducks, and especially hogs (don’t let him get started talking about hunting hogs at night!), and enjoys helping viewers learn more about personal protection with firearms.
By age 13, Tom Gresham was shooting photos for the magazine articles and books written by his father, Grits Gresham. Gresham wrote for and edited major magazines about guns, hunting and the outdoors, before creating the first nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns – Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk, back in 1995. Today, he continues his work on the radio show, and as producer and co-host of Guns & Gear, GunVenture, and First Person Defender television shows.
From his home in southeast Louisiana, Gresham travels the country in search of great shooting and hunting adventures, bringing them to his listeners and viewers.
