Derek Parker leaving Guncrafter

Today Derek Parker announced that he will be leaving GI at the end of the month, then moving on to new opportunities.

I wish him the best and look forward to seeing what the future holds for him.

Spoke with him today. I will let him post when he is ready. He will still be in the firearms industry. He will be available to you.

He's as good a guy as you would ever want to meet, and he's the reason I own a Guncrafter Hellcat.

Derek has posted that he took a job at Cajun Concealed (gun shop) in Louisianna as "Director of Business Development".

It's a perfect fit for him.

I have used Cajun Concealed for all of my pistol purchases. They're exceptional at handling internet customers, and I can only imagine Derek will be a huge asset to this rapidly growing retailer and distributor.

That's funny I called Cajun Concealed today and for the first time on their voicemail had an option to talk to someone other than Tyler.
