Efraim Diveroli always knew what he wanted to be when he grew up – an international arms dealer.
From the time he was a young Jewish Orthodox kid growing up in Miami Beach, he loved guns. Dropping out of high school in the 9th grade and shipped off to Los Angeles, he started working as a stock boy and apprentice salesperson for his uncle’s police supply business at age 14. He proved a quick study, and by 16, he was selling guns, ammo, and tactical equipment to local law enforcement. Eventually, he moved back to Miami, took over a shell company his father had once incorporated called AEY, Inc. And starting with nothing more than a laptop, a cell phone, and a water bong (and some weed), Diveroli quickly gained success beyond his years by supplying everything from goggles to grenades – mostly to his biggest customer – the U.S. Government. By age 18, Diveroli had become a self-made millionaire. This was his American dream.
