CEO and president, War Sport Industries, Robbins
In the family: His wife, Martha, is the owner, making War Sport a woman-owned small business. Their son, Jeremy, a UNC student, also helps around the shop.
Full of ammo: The family goes shooting most weekends at local gun ranges. Boswell prefers Glock models and the War Sport carbine rifle they manufactured this year.
" I'm a firm believer if you build weapons, you should know how to roll with them," Boswell said.
Out on the Boswell property, the family can be found in a busy assembly shop surrounded by whirring sergers and sewing machines.
And they've been so successful the past four years, they're running out of room.
War Sport Industries, a combat weapons and gear company, is making its mark by contracting with the special operations community.
War Sport carries a suppressor sock, a material covering for weapons that prevents thermal detection and reduces mirage effects, as well as the War Sport Bungee, a shock cord system that keeps lights, counterweights and other devices from falling off helmets. That product was developed and released this year, Boswell said.
Perhaps one of the company's biggest inventions is the War Sport carbine rifle, which has been in the works for more than a year.
"We put our own touch and design into it," Boswell said. " It's the latest technology and it's super light."
