I grew up outside a small rural town so naturally firearms
were a part of my life at a young age. I
soon transitioned from targets to hunting and my passion for firearms and the
outdoors has not stopped. I try to learn
new things and gain different skills whenever I can. Many of my “jobs” or other activities seem to
have revolved around helping other people.
I have been a Lifeguard, Firefighter, and EMT. Although I have been in the construction
industry since 2000 I have never lost my drive to help others. I got my pistol permit in 2009 and although I
try to train like crazy, I soon realized the added importance and
responsibility of carrying a concealed firearm for possible defensive use. Since then I have been continually educating
myself and have jumped in with both feet to instruct others in what I now know.
Have the skills and tools needed to prepare for, overcome, and
prevail in any adverse condition that presents itself. Maybe the most important of all of those is the
mindset that says be aware in order to avoid trouble in the first place
and if unavoidable to never give up and do whatever is necessary to return home
Confidence, knowledge and adaptability are
invaluable. Train as though your life depends on it, because it just might.
