We are excited to announce new branding for team We Plead The 2nd and WPT2. "Pro 2 Customs" delivers a new exciting look and name for all of us here. Other than that, nothing here has changed. Same crew, same ownership, and same great quality services. The name change gave us a better identity in what we do here, offering custom services to the 2A community and others. Getting more into industrial coatings, automotive and high temp coatings, fabrication, power coating. The name We Plead The 2nd pigeon holed us into only doing firearm coatings, so a refresh was needed.

Get to know the team
Bryan - Product R&D, Certified Cerakote Applicator, Creative Director, Owner
Bryan's formal eduction and passion is in art. He graduated ASU in 2012 with a bachelors in Architecture, which he worked in that field for about 6 years before starting WPT2. Always being a gun enthusiast, and more recently a competitive shooter; starting this company allowed him to bring artistic vision and customizations to the firearms industry. His major work load is the Cerakote and Stippling side of our business, ever since he trained our staff on taking over the crafting and development of our kydex products. He was NIC factory cerakote certified in May 2017. We are constantly changing and looking for improvements and innovation in our market.
Tyrone - Shop Manager
Tyrone came to us in 2015 as a part-time help around the shop, and quickly grew in his manager and technical skills to take over the holster side of our business. His customer service skills are what makes him a vital asset to our team, and our day-to-day operations, making sure every customer who calls or stops by gets taken care of. Since Bryan lives in the paint booth now it seems, you're most likely to catch Tyrone when you call or stop by.
Viktor - Sales and Marketing
Viktor brings over a decade of small-business experience to WPT2, having been involved in a number of other startups in the tech, financial, and medical fields. He looks to bring our Cerakote, holster, and stippling services direct to manufacturers and distributors and to work with them on marketing strategies.
Lea - Social Media and Networking
Lea is a full-time nurse who accidentally burst onto the 2A social media scene. A previous long-time customer of WPT2, she now helps us with our social media and industry networking. As a shooting enthusiast, her weekends are perfect for demonstrating WPT2's customization services and holster products, and starting conversations with the pro-2A public about what our company can do for them.
