Belly Up to the Bar with Zach Stone

This month we are launching our new series, Grab a Beer with OTTE Gear, where we…well…grab a beer with some of our favorite characters who inhabit the OTTE world we live in and have them answer a series of questions meant to probe and expose their innermost thoughts and feelings. Or at least give us a good laugh.

We start with our very own Zach Stone, heralded manager of our social media & marketing. Zach is a Kiwi who grew up in Australia. During a trip to Italy back in the free and easy days, he met the love of his life, followed her back to the USA, got hitched and some time later made 2 beautiful babies (not at the same time). Zach is passionate about what he does in our industry. He is an avid outdoorsman, adventurer, shooter and all around ridgy-didge guy. So let's not drink with the flies, crack open a cold one and get to know a little more about him.

  • What is your happy place? My lake house.
  • What do you avoid at all costs? Religious and political conversations, it’s all fun and games til someone loses an eye.
  • What is the trait you most dislike in yourself? The need to know everything.
  • What is the trait you most dislike in others? The lack of them knowing anything.
  • What is your most extravagant purchase to-date? My watch, that Deepsea life.
  • What was your state of mind as you walked into this bar? Where is the nearest exit and what scotch do they have.
  • On what occasion do you lie (we know you NEVER do)? When the wife asks how much I spent on my last gun purchase.
  • What one thing would you change about your appearance? Add 3 inches…to my height.

  • What is the most essential piece of Gear for your passion? My OTTE Gear Hard-Shell Patrol Parka.
  • If you had to wear Multicam Alpine or Multicam Tropic head-to-toe the rest of your life, which would it be? Alpine baby.
  • If you were left alone in the Rockies for a week, what 2 items would you pack for defense? My aero 7.5 300blk and my custom G17.
