Frank and Joy Goepfert
Frank and Joy met in school and started dating when they shared a locker in high school and have now been married for over 26 years. They founded Midwest Tactical in 2005 after selling a previously owned landscaping business. Since 2005 the Goepferts have grown Midwest Tactical to be the largest volume machine gun dealer in the United States.
Before Midwest Tactical Mike spent several years working in full time ministry doing everything from youth ministry to leading worship on stage. When he is not in the office Mike loves to spend his time with his two children. Mike is a big sports fan who loves all sports, but likes watching his favorite team, the Denver Broncos, the most. When asked about what hobbies he enjoyed Mike said “playing guitar and piano, watching movies, hanging out with my amazing friends, long walks on the beach, candlelit dinners, and... oops, sorry...got this confused with my dating site bio!”
Mike’s Favorite Romance Movie: It's a tie between John Wick 1 and 2
