Master lenscrafter Bret Hunter is the pioneer who first invented how to put a prescription into a curved, sport-lens back in the early ’90s. Since then he’s been hard at work advancing his craft. He shoots paper targets at the indoor range up the street and exploding targets in the fields with his family. He is an Army veteran, an inventor and tinkerer, a race car driver and his lenscrafting work commands the highest respect amongst his peers in the optical industry.

When she’s not studying, Ashley works the booth at the local gun show, is our resident art director/instagram whiz and tries to speak during photos. It’s highly likely she cleaned, polished your lenses and took your order.
