About Ryan

The Origin Story



Over the past 7 years, Ryan has trained over 80,000 Florida gun owners, sold tens of thousands of copies of his books, created 38 online courses and co-founded a software company called Warrior Cloud that helps firearms instructors gain an unfair advantage over the competition. 



“I ran into the children's building of my church "LOCK THE DOORS! Tell the children to lay on the floor! A man has a gun!!" Then my heart sank to the floor as I thought, "this entire wall is made out of glass; what am I going to do if he shoots the glass???" 

Ryan’s entire life, his plan was to get my Florida concealed carry permit the day he turned 21. But as that day drew near, he realized he had a problem. His  wife, Tiffany, was angry and scared at the idea of having a gun in the house around their kids. Then early one July Sunday morning, Ryan was sitting at the back of his church when he noticed a man walking in wearing a long, black leather trench coat.  This strange man walked down the row, checking to see if the side doors were locked. Then he walked up to an emergency exit, which was labeled "alarms will sound," and pushed it open. The alarms went off, and all the people were looking around, confused at what was happening. 

As Ryan was sitting in service, a staff member slapped him on the shoulder and said, "Ryan, we think that guy is an active shooter. Go to the children's building, tell them what's happening, and secure the building." Ryan jumped up, ran next door, and began locking all the doors and placing volunteers to guard each door. He decided to protect the main entrance, which was made entirely of glass.  As he was standing next to the glass wall, he thought, "What am I going to do if this guy shoots through the glass?"  It was at that moment that Ryan realized he had made a foolish and critical mistake. And this is the moment he decided to purchase a firearm and get his Florida concealed carry permit. 


In 2010 Ryan launched a website selling firearm accessories which quickly exploded into a multiple seven figure business. At this point Ryan’s house looked more like a warehouse than a place a person would live. So he decided to open a retail gun store in Tampa called Lincoln Tactical. 

Lincoln Tactical quickly grew in popularity and crossed 7 figures in revenue the first year.  Ryan and Tiffany discovered that working fourteen hour days six days a week was not a desirable lifestyle for a young couple with three small children. After five years of struggling they decided to close the gun store and look for a better way. 

Tampa Carry was born out of a desire to make more money in less time by using time tested marketing and business principles. 


Ryan's success in the firearms industry has been nothing short of remarkable. His expertise and passion for the field have enabled him to achieve incredible success as a firearms instructor, building a thriving business in Florida that has become the envy of the industry.

But Ryan isn't content to rest on his success. He recognizes that there are countless other firearms instructors out there who are struggling to get their businesses off the ground, and he's determined to help them succeed.

That's why Ryan, together with his wife Tiffany, developed Warrior Cloud, a revolutionary software program that offers a proven system for firearms instructors to start, grow, and scale their businesses.

The software offers a comprehensive suite of tools designed to help instructors double their leads, conversion rates, average order value, and buying frequency, effectively providing a "business in a box" for firearm instructors.

Since its Beta launch in 2021, Warrior Cloud has become a game-changer for firearms instructors and gun stores in Florida and, enabling them to achieve rapid success by tapping into Ryan and Tiffany's proven system.

Through their continued innovation and trailblazing, Ryan and Tiffany are helping to reshape the firearms industry, empowering instructors to build the businesses of their dreams and achieve the success they deserve.


Ryan and Tiffany's love story began while they were both volunteering for an inner city children's ministry called 'Operation Explosion.' Their shared commitment to serving their community brought them together, and they have been inseparable ever since.

Ryan is a man of many passions. He loves spending time with his family, exploring the great outdoors, and reading voraciously. When he's not spending time with his wife and three children, you can often find him hiking with his miniature schnauzer or cruising around on his golf cart.

But above all else, Ryan is passionate about his faith. He believes deeply in God's call to serve others, and he has dedicated his life to doing just that. Ryan and Tiffany are constantly striving to make a positive impact on the world around them.
