Lydia Rella

Lydia Rella Office Manager

Lydia gets it done. And by “it”, we mean everything. Literally. From intake to shipping, from employee birthdays to company outings, and from opening to closing, Lydia keeps things moving. Boss-Lyd, Office Mom, Halloween Queen, whatever you want to call her, the shoe fits. Lydia is the whip crack we hear and the shoulder we cry on, aptly named Office Mom, we love and need her.

He is a 4-time Overall World Champion Cowboy Shooter, lover of heavy metal and incredible gun geek. When not typing away, Bud is usually on the range, shooting Steel Challenge and beating all those modern pistol shooters with his lever gun.

Amanda Rella

Amanda Rella Dispositions Director

Amanda is whatever we need, whenever we need it. She’s moved quickly up the ranks from literally counting bullets to our rockstar Dispositions Director. Nothing is beneath her and nothing is above her, well actually at 5’2?, almost everything is above her. Don’t let the dark appearance or the scowl fool you, she’s as friendly and go-with-the-flow as anyone could be.

Ryan Avena

Former Marine turned LSB Shipping Manager, turned LSB Acquisitions Manager, Ryan has climbed the ranks. If you have a firearm and it is within a day’s drive of LSB, Ryan is coming for it! Prompt and presentable, energetic and eager, Ryan is one of the engines that drives the acquisition at the company. Don’t be surprised if your phone rings and it’s Ryan calling to see if you need us to sell anything for you!

James Broderson

James Broderson Photography Manager

Always ready with a laugh and a camera in hand, James has turned his hobby of photography into his dream career. He is also a dad of two, champion meat smoker and supplier of pork “butt” to our very hungry staff. Who could ask for more?

Hector Rivera

Hector Rivera Shipping Manager

Brand new to LSB, Hector is no stranger to the gun world. Customer turned employee, he’s a gun lover, father and frequent hunter. He’s been a great addition to the LSB staff, ensuring that our customers receive their purchases well-packaged and on-time.

Alisa Cooke

Alisa Cooke Consignor Liaison

You will never feel alone! We promise! Alisa will make sure of that. As our consignor liaison, Alisa takes care of you every step of the way and keeps you informed. She will get you what you need before you even ask for it, and she will do it with a smile on her face and a genuine concern for you. A little bit of a Star Wars geek (OK, more than a little bit), an avid outdoors woman and camper, Alisa isn’t just nice but she’s pretty darn cool as well!

Sarah Broderson

Sarah Broderson California Compliance Mgr

Sarah is not only the best California Compliance Manager and local customer liaison that we have ever had on staff, but she is also the best bartender that we have ever had on staff. We poached her from our favorite local restaurant, where her charm and attentiveness won us over. We are lucky to have her, and a more dedicated team member never existed. We love her as much as our local customers do!

Ana Mendez Dispositions Associate

A California girl through and through, Ana loves the beach, the park or any time outdoors in the sunshine with her daughter. Look at that adorable face, can you blame her? Ana makes sure the phones are answered and customer orders head out the door as soon as possible.

Spencer Garrett

Spencer “Red” Garrett Gun Writer

Red has climbed the ranks here, showing dedication, incredible energy and perseverance from the start. Red showed up, resume in hand, repeatedly, until we finally broke down and hired him. Originally just our coffee boy and “gopher,” he has become a crucial part of the team and one of our most valuable writers. We often wonder what we would do without Red, his antics and his mediocre impersonations.

Trevor Wakefield

Trevor Wakefield Gun Writer

Trevor is one of LSB’s crack gun writing staff. Dedication, willingness to learn, work ethic and drive are words we would use to describe Trevor. With specific expertise in the field, if it crosses Trevor’s desk, you can rest assured nothing will be missed and attention will be given. This man can eat donuts at a rate unseen before, maybe out-eat the rest of the office combined, but you wouldn't guess it by looking at him.

Richard Powell

Richard Powell Gun Writer

Don’t let the serious face fool you, Rick is always keeping us laughing. This father of two and science-fiction fan didn’t come to us with a gun background but he’s making up for lost time. If you purchased a Ruger from us, you can thank Rick for the spot-on assessment. He’s thirsty for knowledge and his writing skills and gun knowledge improve daily. We expect great things from him in the future.

Rob Cobos

Rob Cobos Military Gun Writer

Rob is our ever knowledgeable and insightful expert on both foreign and U.S. military rifles. It is always a challenge to stump Rob, and whether it's a bayonet or a bolt, he can not only identify the rifle but also tell you the entire history of it. Rob is a retired police officer, spending his time now identifying what we get in here, pumping iron at the local gym and “nerding” out at Comic Con.

Innokenty Loon

Innokenty Loon Gun Writer

Don’t let the serious expression fool you...well, actually he’s always serious. Inno is our newest gun writer and he is 100% focused 100% of the time. A Navy vet with an MA in history from CSUN, he loves researching all of the historically significant firearms we bring in, and his gun knowledge grows daily.

Robert Herrera

Robert Herrera Writer

Robert or “El Roberto” is always diligently sorting through ammo, brass and bullets, keeping a steady flow for our bidders and doing it with a smile on his face. Whether it is a box of 9mm or a single obscure and obsolete cartridge, Roberto will identify it and get it to auction. If you don’t get the response you need from him, he’s not ignoring you, he just can't hear you. Speak Up!

Lew Taub

Lew Taub Ebay Writer

Lew has been here since the start. Even after three attempts at retiring, he just can't stay away. We wouldn’t be where we are and we couldn’t get done what we do without Uncle Lew. A bull of a man, with more energy than someone half his age, Lew gets done whatever is put in front of him and whatever is needed. When not here, you’ll find him in a duck blind or in Vegas and Idaho with his grandkids.

Craig Scott

Craig Scott Ebay Writer

Craig is one of the few here who is responsible for our massive volume on eBay. Having liquidated gun and gunsmithing shops, we have tons of parts that need identification. Always with a caliper in hand and jewelers glasses at the ready, Craig weeds through our piles of parts and brings exciting offerings every week to our customers. When not nose down over the workbench, he is laying down rubber on his street bike.

Anton Nixon

Anton Nixon Ebay Writer

Anton knows everything - just kidding!!! But, he does know where to research everything. From boots to airplane propellers, comic books to bayonets and pocket knives to swords, Anton knows it and can get it listed and sold! Don’t let the beard, biker jacket and motorcycle fool you, this is the nicest man you’ll ever want to meet. We are lucky to have him in the office every day!

Nicholas Loverme

Nicolas Loverme Inventory Management

Need to find something? Nico is the man to dig it up! He’s constantly on the move keeping our inventory moving throughout the system and safely stored. He’s also our resident Dungeon Master and class clown. He may be our shortest employee, but he makes up for it with spunk and a can-do attitude that can’t be beat.

John Allen

John Allen Logistics Associate

While only here part time, John is an invaluable asset to the shipping department. No one picks, packs and safely gets our collectibles out to customers like him. We’ve tried to lure him to us full time, but his high flying aviation family just won’t let him go! John is with us for as long as we can hold on to him and a great asset to the LSB family.

Jorge Reyes Logistics Associate

Jorge is one of our latest and most valuable additions. You need anything? Jorge is always there to lend a helping hand with a smile. When he's not making sure shipments go out packaged well and on time, he's out in the wilderness camping and shooting or spending time with friends and family.

Palmer Bailey

Palmer Bailey California Customer Rep

Palmer is our Saturday Sarah. He is that big fish in the pond that legend tells of, but you can’t quite catch. We wish he was here every day and you’ll know why after meeting him. Whether it is movie gun knowledge, obscure firearms history, cigar smoking, sweet talking or the ever evolving California regulatory landscape, Palmer is our Jedi Master.

Uncle Bobby

‘Uncle’ Bobby Road Trip Assistant

Uncle Bobby is actually Spencer's uncle and has been here since the start. LSB’s first office space was 400 square feet, which Bob helped to drywall and paint. There was no A/C and only one bathroom. Luckily LSB grew well beyond that and always with the help of Uncle Bobby. Now you are likely to see Uncle Bobby on the road with Spencer and Alyse, helping Walker keep an eye on them and helping the consignment loads safely get back to California.

Teresa Palmer

Teresa Palmer Northwest Acquisitions

Teresa, Mama-P, Mother-Teresa, Mama-Bend, Arctic Annie, is a woman of many names but even more talents. We are excited to have her join the team and she is the energy we needed in the Pacific Northwest. Having helped raise Spencer (along with her own two boys), she knows the gun industry and the business. Anything you need in this part of the country, call Mama-P!

Brian Hoover

Brian Hoover Wyoming Outpost Auctions

Brian has been there since the start, literally… Brian is Spencer’s High School best friend, who wisely left California and sought refuge in Cody, WY. Affectionately known as “Hoover”, Brian is the Operating Manager of WOA and road trip team leader for LSB. You have never met a more can-do man, and no matter what makes you run into Brian, he’ll leave you with a great smile and an even better hug. There is nothing that Brian cannot get done, sold or brought back… Anything you need Hoover to gather up and sell for you, just let us know!

Logan Swartz

Logan Swartz WYOA Auction Coordinator

Logan is the engine behind the outpost and the muscle needed on the cross-country pick-up trips. Whether processing “California-discriminated” firearms for auction from WY, or gathering said firearms from around the country, Logan gets it done. It is uncertain if his girls made him such a nice man or if he came that way! Regardless, that’s how this Wyoming Gentleman is!

Jed Becker

Jed Becker WYOA Road Trip Asst.

Jed is that young man you wish you could hire and then adopt, but you can’t, he’s ours! You will meet Jed on the road with LSB and WOA, impressing you with his politeness and willingness to work. Sit back and let Jed do all the lifting for you (we do, LOL). Plus, he and his family-bred puppies will win you over! Need we say more?

Image coming soon.

Jamie Carter Office Associate

Jamie is new to LSB, but no stranger to Spencer. When he found out she was on the job market, nothing got in the way of bringing her into the LSB family. Jamie can be found quietly entering data and managing compliance for the mountains of paperwork we’re required to have on hand. She’s quickly become an invaluable part of our staff.

Image coming soon.

Dylan Scott Logistics Associate

Dylan is another youngster hired by LSB, but guns aren’t new to him. He comes from a long line of law enforcement and firefighters, and we love his discipline and teamwork skills. He’s learning quickly and is fast becoming a vital part of our shipping department. Whether it’s guns, ammo or reloading equipment, he knows how to pack it safely and securely.
