Get Well Soon John Carey

John Carey's Buck 2012The firearm industry has a long-standing tradition of supporting our most valuable resource — the people who make it all happen.

A friend of Shooting Times is in critical condition after suffering from a tragic motorcycle accident on Jul. 26, 2014. John Carey, an essential asset of Freedom Arms in Freedom, Wyo., remains in intensive care following the accident.

Carey was riding near Idaho Falls when Pamela Foulds, 66, failed to yield in a 2006 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck. The collision resulted in no injuries for Foulds, but Carey was airlifted to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls with broken legs, ribs, a severe concussion and other injuries.

An avid shooter and hunter, Carey applies his passion for firearms and the outdoors to his work at Freedom Arms, where his teamwork as a gunsmith, engineer and customer relations specialist are essential to the operations of the shop. The accident has already resulted in over three weeks of absence from Freedom Arms, and his return date is likely several months away. Since the accident, Carey has undergone numerous surgeries, including cadaver bone implants in his legs. His recovery time includes several more surgeries in the coming weeks and months.


Carey, 45, is the happily married father of four girls under the age of 11 and a newborn baby boy whom his wife gave birth since he's been under intensive care. As of Aug. 14, 2014, John had not yet met his newborn son, Caleb Carey.


We offer our best wishes to John Carey to get well soon so he can share his hunting and shooting traditions with his five children and resume his fulfilling career at Freedom Arms. Please join us in supporting John Carey with your thoughts and prayers. Additional support can be provided at the following:
