    Erica Centola has a background in biology, with a Bachelor's degree from Russel Sage college.

She decided that she would help the company out by meeting with customers and maintaining the retail side of Allstar Tactical. In 2010, she officially assumed the role of Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer, as we decided to move Allstar Tactical into the role of firearms manufacturing. She now helps to keep the day-to-day operations of the company going strong as we grow.

    Erica has been through several firearms training classes in handgun combatives, carbine combatives, as well as she is an NRA certified Range Safety Officer. She enjoys helping other women shooters enjoy the sport and find good defensive firearms training.
