About MATT JACOBS, Cape Gun Works gunsmith

Matt grew up in non-gun-owning home in Belmont, Mass. His first exposure to firearms was when he was about 10. His grandfather let him shoot his Marlin model 60 in his back yard in Plymouth. He later gave Matt his Sheridan Blue Streak multi-pump pneumatic .20 caliber air rifle. It was with this gun that he honed his shooting skills in his early teens. That air rifle currently sits on a wooden rack in Matt’s bedroom as a tribute to the man (now deceased) who got him into this way of life. Matt attended Pennsylvania Gunsmith School in Pittsburgh, Pa. and graduated in 2011 with a diploma certifying him as a “Sporting Arms Ordnance Technician.” While there he also completed the Glock armorers course and became one of their certified armorers. Matt lives in Eastham with his girlfriend, Sherena, and their daughter, Fanya, which is Russian for “free.” An old mutt, Roxie, completes their family.

Favorite handgun: HKVP9.
