About

Thomas Cottle is a Texas native, born and raised on the Gulf Coast. Growing up in a military family was a significant factor in Tom’s early development.  His father instilled a sense of honor, self-sufficiency and dedication that helped form his character.  Hunting and fishing with his father and older brothers was the highlight of every summer growing up.  Tom’s mother was also a powerful influence.  She instilled in him a strenuous work ethic by working in, managing and owning restaurants over the majority of her life and involving him in those enterprises whenever possible.  Shortly after graduating from High School, Tom attended Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos (Now Texas State University) which prepared him well for the business world. Tom joined his brother in medical equipment sales in 1986 and together they built a very well respected company over twenty years, which he sold in 2013.  Becoming a Texas licensed auctioneer in 2012 allowed Tom to become a more important part of his wife, Georgia's, estate liquidation and appraisal practice with a focus on appraisals of residential contents, antiques and collectibles.  Tom has had many interests over his life and due to that early interaction with firearms and hunting, has maintained a passion for pistols and long guns to this day.  Recieving his Federal Firearms License as a manufaturer / dealer of firearms and becoming a Cerakote Certified Applicator have been recent highlights and have helped augument his growing firearms business.  Tom is someone you can easily trust because it quickly becomes apparent that he does practice the Golden Rule and knows how important it is to walk the walk, if you’re going to talk the talk.
