Aaron and Steve Gould make up Gould Brothers Exhibition Shooting (GBX).  Aaron and Steve have very different personalities but their passion combined makes for an entertaining show.  Interestingly, Steve did not grow up hunting/shooting like his brother Aaron, but found his passion for the shooting sports while in college.  They now travel across the country to perform live exhibition shooting shows.

“The Gould Brother’s passion to the shooting sports and gun safety is evident in their live shows and videos.  We’re happy to have them on board as a unique and exciting way to further promote the Otis brand.  We’ll be kicking off our partnership with a live performance for our employees,” states Len.

Michel & the Gould Brothers join a prestigious lineup of Otis pro’s including Kim Rhode, Doug Koenig, Matt Hughes, Mark Wills, and Tracy & Lanny Barnes.
