Paul Gonzales
Owner


"If you aren't doing your best, it probably isn't worth doing." — himself


Paul began his love of firearms at an early age. It was then that he first started thinking about what would be the ideal shooting experience. As he became older and took over the family construction business, Paul was presented with both the vision and opportunity to establish the Trigger Time Gun Club. Thankfully for all of us, he not only seized the chance but poured his heart and soul into making this club what it is today. Paul enjoys distant target shooting and sharing the joy of firearms with everyone willing to give it a shot.

JoEllen Gonzales
Owner + Administration


"When life throws you lemons... shoot 'em."


JoEllen is one of the nicest people you could hope to meet. She quietly keeps Trigger Time running by taking care of the less flashy end of things behind the scenes. Her ability to keep everything organized while also holding each one of us accountable is the reason our business continues to flourish. Like Paul, JoEllen pours  200% of herself into our establishment and our business is better for it.

Zach Yarrow

General Manager

 

Zach collected high end rifles and pistols for many years but in the last several years has went head first into the precision rifle scene. Becoming an accomplished long range shooter in the last 3 years is no easy task and Zach is doing well. Zach became a member at TTGC and  was then asked to manage TTGC and has been doing it ever since. Zach's drive to secure only the best firearms, gear and staff makes him and our shop one of the best resources in the Colorado area.

Patrick Jones
Gunsmith + Rifle Builder


"No worries."


Patrick started shooting BB guns and 22's in the Scouts as a boy. As he grew up he was having trouble finding a reliable gunsmith, so he enrolled into the Trinidad State Junior College to learn to the work for himself. Getting hired here at TTGC allows him to help people which was his reason to become a gunsmith. On his days away from Trigger Time, he enjoys shooting USPSA and revolver competitions.

Shona Brown
Administration + Member services

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined." — Henry David Thoreau


Shona grew up in the Pacific North West where hunting, fishing and shooting are a way of life. Her husband who is also from the Northwest grew up with a love for hunting and fishing as well. In February 2011 Shona was offered a job here at Trigger Time Gun Club and has become a very important part of our team. Working here has brought back many of the small town feelings. One of the perks that she likes about being a part of Trigger Time is that she gets to see the her husband and sons shoot in our weekly combat league. She gets to see the love and passion that they have for firearms, especially in the eyes of her 11 year old. She also believes that her family being a part of the Trigger Time family is the best "perk" to working here.
