About Us

Paul G. Markel

Being a Student of the Gun is not about being a novice or beginner. Student of the Gun represents a life's journey of education, enlightenment and the enjoyment of firearms. Each episode will introduce the viewer to new and interesting firearms as well as the latest gear to go with them.

We will travel throughout the United States seeking the advice and expertise of the best firearms trainers available. Sometimes deadly serious, sometimes just for fun, Student of the Gun will always strive to educate and entertain their viewers while offering them an insiders' look at the worlds of firearms.

Paul G. Markel became a U.S. Marine in 1987 and served his nation during times of war and peace.  A law enforcement veteran, Paul was a police officer for seventeen years before becoming a full-time Small Arms and Tactics Instructor.  During the late unpleasantness, Mr. Markel has trained thousands of U.S. Military troops prior to their deployment to combat zones.  He is and will remain a dedicated Student of the Gun.
