Mark Buff, founder of GunZee and concealed carry enthusiast

Mark has a Bachelor's of Science in electrical engineering, a Master of Science in computer engineering, and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering—all three degrees from North Carolina State University.

Mark has had a career in defense. As a defense contractor, he worked on technology to neutralize improvised explosive devices (IEDs), ranging from Robot Operator Control Unit (OCU) arrays to “no-profile” antenna systems for military ground vehicles.

A serial entrepreneur with success across multiple companies, Mark started GunZee to solve his own problem. He was tired of being gouged by stiff KYDEX holsters and invented the GunZee holster pad to make his own daily carry more comfortable.

After rave reviews by the gun community for his initial memory foam holster pad, Mark released additional variations, including heavy-duty versions. He also added other gun accessories, such as gun cleaning kits and a range bag. 

Mark hopes that GunZee products will make your life as a concealed carrier more enjoyable.
