Like many others my life with shooting began at my family hunting camp with my father, a .22 rifle, and some soda cans. While I have enjoyed all aspects of shooting since then, it was when I got my pistol permit that I found a true love and passion for shooting. My mindset about personal protection changed and I decided to become proactive with a sheepdog mentality. I took the Defensive Pistols Skills 101 class taught by Wendy and Chris. This class opened the door to an entire community of like minded individuals to share and learn from. I was then introduced to the Tuesday Night Defensive Pistol shoot run by Dave and his father Stu. It was there that I discovered another interest I shared with my father, teaching. I decided to become a range safety officer on Tuesdays and started working with Dave to join his team of instructors at Rochester Personal Defense LLC. As I need little excuse to go to the range, I look forward to working with new and veteran shooters in order to develop the mindset, skills, and tactics for real world personal defense.
I want to help the good guys win.
