Josh Brady

Expert Firearms Instructor and Ammunition Specialist

Professional Background and Role

With a rich background as a former home-based Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) in Mammoth Lakes, California, Josh has honed his skills in stocking, selling, and training with a variety of pistols, including the limited supply of DOJ-certified platforms available in California. Now, at Top Shot Indoor Range and Guns, he enjoys the freedom to use and sell an unregulated selection of brands, taking advantage of the opportunity to utilize these items directly on-site.

A notable recent project that Josh is proud of is teaching a 9-year-old how to run an Uzi, showcasing his passion for educating the next generation in safe and effective firearm use.

Skills and Expertise

Bringing in-depth knowledge of reloading ammunition and selling such items, Josh adds a valuable layer of expertise to the team. To stay updated with industry trends and developments, he regularly engages with content on YouTube and Rumble, ensuring a constant flow of the latest information and techniques.

For those interested in entering this field, Josh’s advice is simple yet profound: be kind and approachable. This approach not only fosters a positive learning environment but also builds trust with clients.

A fun fact that might surprise people is his aspiration to switch jobs with the President for a day, believing that if Joe Biden can handle the role, he surely could as well.

Customer Service Philosophy

In his role, Josh believes that most people are unaware of what can be accomplished until it happens.

A memorable experience was teaching a client, who was cross-dominant in his left eye, to shoot left-handed while being right-handed, significantly improving his skills.

For Josh, the key to building strong relationships with customers is honesty and demonstrating a skill level they can aspire to comfortably.
