My former Marine Sergeant father introduced me to shooting at the age of four. At about the same time, he began taking me on his squirrel hunting forays and I've been an avid hunter and shooter ever since. In my senior year of high school, I attended a karate demonstration which lead to a lifelong interest in the martial arts. RPD instructor Ian Scott happens to also be a member of the Dansville Fish & Game club, and it was there that he told me about Rochester Personal Defense. It didn't take much persuasion to get me enrolled in Defensive Pistol 101. I knew immediately that I was among kindred spirits and that I wanted to become a member of the "family". Along with shooting and hunting, I love to go skiing, cycling, kayaking and horseback riding particularly with any of my three sons, daughter and wife of 35 years.
Live life to the fullest. Help others when you can. Teach them to do the same. (And a little adrenaline never hurt anybody).
