Joshua grew up in the small town of Oxford, Ohio, just north of Cincinnati. Though he went to law school, he's now the Director of a Recruiting Firm, working with clients in many industries.
Unlike most American Jews who tend to discover guns later in life, Joshua was introduced to firearms by a family friend when he was just 10 years old. Later he flirted with shooting sports with help from a retired military veteran who Josh describes as "a bit of a gun guru." Josh's Jewish family members and friends have been quite supportive. Like most Jews who take up shooting as a hobby, he was was initially surprised at how tolerant and supportive they've been. Josh has also introduced Jewish friends to guns, helping to keep the ball rolling! Why does Josh shoot? He says:
I like the feeling of power you have when you learn how to properly use a firearm. I’d like to become more proficient, and network with other Jewish (and non-Jewish) shooters. Feel free to contact me! I’m looking to network with Jews who understand why we need to be armed.
