I was introduced to the World of shooting at a young age by
my Grandfather. At 8 years old he took me with him to the local shooting
club and taught me firearms safety, using a pellet rifle and then a .22.
When I turned 13 my Grandfather gave me one of my most prize possessions, a
Marlin 39A, .22 Rifle. From this early age I have been involved in
shooting and learning about Firearms use and History.
Over the next ten
years I began to expand my knowledge about Firearms and began to collect
various Historical guns. My passion for Firearms and History lead me to a
History Major in College and then a brief career as a teacher. After
several years in teaching, I decided to follow a different path; one where my
love of firearms and background as a shooter would play a part. Over ten
years ago I began a career in the Private security Industry. As part of
my Job I have trained in various skills such as Close Quarters Tactics,
Precision Rifle shooting and handgun Tactics. As well as Participating in
several force on force exercises.
Outside of work I have sought to expand
my skill as well, attending several rifle and pistol classes. I am now
looking to merge both my Education background and my shooting and security
skills into being Professional Firearms Trainer.
My goal is to bring the skills of an educator to the
shooting range. I want people to learn in the best way they can from me
in a firearms class. Real world instruction for the armed citizen in a
way that is easy to digest and allows the student to achieve their goals.
