My name is Dante Farina, and I am the owner/operator of SSD Armory in Winter Park.
My love of firearms began early in my childhood. My Uncle taught me to shoot when I was only 9 years old and that was it- I was hooked!
Enlisting in the Marine Corps at age 17, I quickly began to hone my skills and earn even greater respect for all aspects of weaponry. As most veterans would understand, your weapon becomes part of you. Knowing your firearm inside and out is ingrained in your brain - you don't even have to think about it.
After the Corps, I began a career of service in the Orlando Fire Department. Being a fireman and engineer was a rewarding and challenging profession, but I always knew I wanted to continue being involved with firearms. So I obtained my certificate of Gunsmithing, my FFL and Class 3 licensing and opened a small shop in Winter Park, doing repairs and sales on my days off.
In August, 2019, I retired from OFD after 29 years and opened SSD Armory in a new location on Nicolet Avenue. It has been exciting and rewarding watching my dream unfold after all these years. I love sitting down with my customers, getting to know them, and trading stories.
