Team Member Ron David, Owner of I.C.E.


A 22-year Navy Veteran, Ron is passionate about everything he does.  After a career in healthcare logistics, Ron finally found his way into doing what he is passionate about - helping people gain the confidence and skills to responsibly own and operate firearms, ensuring people feel confident and secure in their surroundings, and making sure, as citizens, our Second Amendment Rights are protected and exercised!

Executive Training Program

The executive training program is meant for those business owners and executives who feel the need to protect themselves.  ICEFDT brings the training to you!  A tailored program, specifically designed for the busy professionals, we bring the technology, training and guns to you and your business.  We will use your facilities, interact and personally train you and your staff on the use of a firearm to protect yourself.  

Personal Protection in the Home

In today's world, it is so important to know how to handle a gun.  But equally important, it is critical to understand all the legal implications of a responsible gun owner and what it means to legally protect yourself and family during a crisis.

Our Company

While our agency was not established until 1957, there has been a Browning at this location since the 1930’s. Lindsay Browning had his grocery store here, which also included a lunch counter.

Dave Reagle joined Bob as a partner in 2003 – and two years later, ownership was passed to Dave and Kevin Murphy.

Along the way, Browning Reagle has earned numerous awards and accolades, including the most prestigious award given by the Erie Insurance Group – given to just one agency each year – the F.W. Hirt Quality Agent Award in 2012. 

Laurie Lewis joined the Browning Reagle Insurance Agency in February 2016 as Agency Manager. She’s been in the insurance industry for over 25 years, and has held positions in Agency Management, as well as Sales & Service.

Laurie obtained her Property & Casualty & Life licenses in 1991. She then went on to obtain her Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) designation in 2002, and has maintained this designation ever since. Laurie brings a professional attitude to our team, and makes it her responsibility to ensure our clients are provided accurate advice and coverage information. She strives to treat people the way she would like to be treated, as if she were in their shoes looking for insurance guidance.


How Can Laurie Help You? 


  - Personal Auto – Auto insurance for you and your family

  - Motorcycle - Get covered so you can relax and enjoy riding season

  - Off-Road Vehicle - We also offer coverage for off-road & recreational vehicles

  - Homeowners - If you own a home, rent an apartment, have a condo, or if you’re a landlord

  - Boat - Boats are an expensive investment, make sure you’re protected

  - Umbrella - For further protection in the event of something unexpected

  - Business – Whether you need property or liability coverage, or a package of the two

  - Commercial Auto - For fleet (5 or more vehicles) and non-fleet (less than 5 vehicles) businesses

Looking for a Real Estate Agent who puts you first?

If you’re planning to buy or sell a home, you want the process to go successfully. If you’re selling, success means getting your property sold quickly and for the highest price possible. If you’re buying, it means finding your next dream home and getting into it, affordably. On top of that, if you’re like most of my satisfied customers, you also want everything to go smoothly, with as little stress as possible.

How can you ensure all that happens? By working with a real estate agent who truly puts you first.

I’m proud to be the real estate agent of choice for those who want a great experience buying or selling a home. My “clients-first” approach means that you’ll be working with a professional who listens to you, provides expert advice, and works hard on your behalf.

The Expert by Your Side


When you’re selling: My track record of success means I know how to showcase your house effectively, market and promote it so that it attracts qualified buyers and get it SOLD for the highest price. Throughout the process, I’m with you every step of the way, making sure your questions are answered, all the details are handled expertly, and the entire experience is a positive one.

When you’re buying: My expertise in the local market means I can introduce you to homes that meet your criteria – and notify you immediately of brand new listings. I can advise you on what to look for when viewing a home, so you don’t make a catastrophic mistake, and I can arm you with in-depth details on every property you see. When you find a home you fall in love with, I know how to negotiate effectively so you get that property, at the best possible price. In fact, nothing pleases me more than saying, “The home is yours.”


Next Steps


If you’re looking for a real estate agent, it’s important that you find someone who is a good fit for you. So let’s talk. I’d like to learn more about you and your needs and goals. You can count on me to “tell it like it is” and give you a realistic picture of what is possible.

Laurienzo Brick Oven Cafe is located in the heart of Mount Airy, Maryland’s historic Main Street. Brothers Jay & Bruce Laurienzo have brought to this friendly and proud community a dining experience where everyone is welcome at the table.

Rich oak and mahogany tables, enveloped by bold “wine-colored” walls, offer a warm environment for gatherings of all kinds.

At the center of this uniquely traditional eatery is a wood-fired brick oven, baking hot delicious pizzas from home cooked recipes.

Fresh pastas, grilled meats, fish & vegetables, oven roasts, garden fresh salads, house-made soups, and hot pressed sandwiches make this an accessible and a fun menu for all.

Market driven specials are chalk-boarded everyday for the most creative preparations of the freshest ingredients.

The communal table, set in a midnight blue bar, is the perfect meeting place to enjoy fresh berry margaritas, icy cold craft bottled beers, and over a dozen wines by the glass. A bowl of house-made white wine sangria sits on the bar as a beacon of welcome.

Sit among the fresh herbs on a brick paved patio during the seasonal months and enjoy dining al fresco as you shop and stroll along Main Street.

After surviving the devastating fire of 2007, the Laurienzo family “rose from the ashes” and pressed on with the overwhelming support of their community of family and friends. 

The Phoenix is in full flight.

What Drives Us


As our mantra states, “Our focus is always on results.”  Everything that we do for our clients from our initial meeting until a website launches and beyond, is to provide our clients with what they need most out of a website, results.  We judge the success of our websites not based on whether they win an award for a beautiful design or if they get a large amount of hits (or traffic), but by the amount of new clients you get on a month to month basis.  Our monthly programs are billed per month with NO CONTRACT.  We  thrive off of getting your company results, but if you don’t get results, you’re able to cancel our services at any point.  This helps us to know that our clients are happy and that they are actively getting leads and honestly… that’s why we get up in the morning.   


Our Secret Formula


There’s many companies out there that provide web design services, web video services, search-engine-optimization, pay-per-click, and more.  What there’s not a lot of though is companies who work with ALL of these different things as one cohesive marketing plan.  All of these services play a part in our secret formula, but what keeps it all working together and generating results for you is not realizing that any one thing is more important than another. One of the biggest ingredients in our secret formula is the same as what drives us, we genuinely care about and become invested in the success of our clients and utilize advanced SEO and design techniques to ensure a beautiful websites that gets high traffic that ultimately leads to new customers filling out the form or picking up the phone to talk with you.


Our Team


The way that we structure our process and workflow plays a vital role in the success of our clients.  Because our focus is not solely on design, development, SEO, or whatever else, we take the time to make sure that we hire the highest quality local employees who may have a focus in one area, but have enough knowledge to understand and oversee the project from start to finish.  When web design companies segregate their process too much, the product suffers and the site isn’t designed, developed, and optimized following the same focus and marketing strategies. We know the value and importance of keeping everyone on the same page to accomplish one singular goal, to get you results.
