Meet the Team
We are incredibly grateful to have an amazing team of firearm specialists, instructors, and ammunition specialists here to serve you. It doesn’t matter if you’re coming to shoot at our range, purchase a new firearm or ammunition, or participating in one of our many training courses. You can have confidence knowing you’ll be looked after by a highly-trained, knowledgeable, and compassionate member of our team.
Born and raised right here in the Upstate of South Carolina, Leslie founded his business in a 200 square foot building that was 70 years old at the time back in 2013. Before that, he proudly served as a Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Deputy from 2008 to 2013, and he was lucky enough to marry his high school sweetheart. The two of them now have two teenage boys, and the whole family loves to spend time together hunting, fishing, and shooting.
A native of the Upstate, Blythe worked in the banking industry for years before transitioning to the C&C Indoor Range team. Since joining us, she’s provided unparalleled support as we’ve moved, expanded, and experienced downtime. Blythe is married to her high school sweetheart and cherishes every moment she gets to spend with him and the boys.
