Mr. Austin is a life-long resident of the Mississippi Delta located in the North West corner of the state. He has been married to his wife, Brenda, since 1973 and graduated from Mississippi State University with a degree in Agronomy in 1974. After graduation he and his wife joined Mr. Austin's father in the family's farming operation and continued the family business after his father's death until 1990.
He has been a long-term member of the United Methodist Church, where he has held several positions and is currently one of his local Church's head Ushers/Doorkeepers and is on the accountancy crew.
Mr. Austin was introduced to Mr. Casey after discontinuing his farming operation which lead to a partnership that has seen their development and management of what grew into three Nationwide, very successful companies.
Mr. Austin, being a life-long resident of one of this country's premier hunting and fishing regions, has grown up in an environment of responsible gun ownership. This greatly influenced Mr. Austin to seek a way to legally protect our Second Amendment Rights, and because of this he was honored to join Mr. Casey in the formation of a new company, Gun Owner Legal Defense, Inc.
