He grew up in the Enon area where he attended elementary through High School, and was a graduate of Greenon High School class of 1979.

Gregory started working for the U.S. Government at Tinker AFB in Oklahoma City in 1983, worked at China Lake Naval research base in CA from 1989 to 1996 when he moved back to Springfield, Ohio with his family. He worked some non-governmental contracting jobs until he got hired in 2008 for the department of defense at DSCC DFAS military depot in Columbus, Ohio before retiring in 2020 with 24 years of service to the U.S. Government. Gregory was always interested in firearms, from the Civil War to the Most Modern ones. He was a competition shooter in various leagues while he lived in California, then he got into Civil War musket competitions for about 10 years after he moved to Ohio.
