Our Story

OwnGuard Solutions was founded by Jim O’Brien and Denis Haynes, who have been friends for nearly 25 years. They originally met riding motorcycles but quickly realized that they both had interests in firearms, personal safety, and preparedness. OwnGuard Solutions is a manifestation of their belief that being safer and more prepared is better. They are driven to see you, your family and your friends be safer and better prepared so you are not completely reliant on others when things go sideways.
