About Me

I am Staff Sergeant Felix Mena, US Army Fire Direction Specialist for the Multiple Launch Rocket System. I am currently on active duty assigned to Fort Bliss, Texas. I started My Gun Diary as a blog while on deployment in Kuwait, as a way to kill time and stay productive. It's grown into a wide network which includes a full compliment of social media platforms as well as the YouTube channel. 

I started shooting and collecting firearms back around 2005, when I lived in Arizona. My first time on the range was at the Beautiful Scottsdale Gun Club. A former employer presented me with my first firearm, an AR15, as a Christmas bonus! I've been hooked on shooting ever since.

I enjoy all types of firearms, but my main interests are in sporting arms, military surplus and handguns. I also enjoy shotguns (i.e. shooting skeet and trap) and have a few in my collection.

Thanks for visiting my site and I hope you'll bookmark it and come back because there's always something new!
