According to White Pages, as a young child, Michael Zomber was heavily interested in exploring the outdoors. He was an enthusiastic member of the Boy Scouts of America, an organization that eventually helped him discover his love for history, firearms and politics. During a field trip in Pennsylvania, the young Mike saw a historic Springfield rifle on display in a local museum. He was absolutely mesmerized by the craftsmanship and power of the firearm.
As an adult, Zomber has become a collector of various types of weapons and armor from all over the world. However, he only realized his passion for antique firearms after graduating from multiple institutions of higher education in the United States. He holds degrees in English literature and psychology.
Boasting more than four decades of experience in collecting historic weapons, Michael Zomber was the perfect candidate for a guest commentator on some of the History Channel’s shows. For example, he has made numerous appearances in Dueling Pistols and Automatic Pistols.
In these shows, he focuses on the technical details of American guns and rifles. Additionally, Zomber was featured in Guns of the Orient, which is about weapons in Asia. In fact, his personal collection includes samurai swords that are centuries old.
As a professional author, Michael Zomber holds several novels to his name. “A Son of Kentucky” and “Sweet Betsy That’s Me: A Child of the Civil War” clearly reflect his interest in early American history. These publications inform readers about the Civil War from the perspectives of ordinary civilians who witnessed the brutality of the conflict.
Additionally, Zomber has authored “Shogun Iemitsu: War and Romance in 17th Century Tokugawa Japan,” which is a fascinating piece for anyone who’s interested in samurai history.
Although he has spent most of his life collecting weapons, Zomber actually holds a pacifistic political view. He understands the damage that firearms continue to inflict on innocent people all over the world. Therefore, he has joined various global entities such as Amnesty International and UNICEF, which provide reliable assistance to distressed people. In his free time, Zomber enjoys spending time with his beloved wife and two children.
