Celeste’s Bio will be posted soon if we can get her to create one.  It’s just hard to get any work out of her.

She does make a mean Green Chile Stew though!

Vanessa Cardoza

Retail Sales Manager/Lead

Tactical Safety Institute / Bracken Guns

She loves guns…what can we say.  Growing up in the country, she was always around dirt, grease, mud and most things that spell trouble.  From overhauling engines to culinary school…that’s her and she’s mostly a Tomboy at heart. Online gaming…she’s a first-person shooter goddess…lol!  Bring her a Henry taco and you may get a discount!

But she loves working with firearms and helping customers at all experience levels.  Many ladies out there are intimidated when it comes to gun shopping.  Come see her and she’ll fix that fast!  Confident that she can truly make a difference and she looks forward to seeing you here in the store!
