Most of the hired muscle were originally Chinese and Irish immigrants to cut costs, with their commanding officers usually formerly Army. As the Gold Rush moved into full swing, the contracts doubled and eventually they were hired by banks in stopover towns as private protection. After the Gold rush, Gecko were given Contracts to protect the train company's railways from Native Americans and bandits, with most confrontations ending in victory for the guards. As the company grew, Gecko formed a gunsmith subsidiary to help keep their private forces armed.
