I have been an NRA Certified Instructor for over 30 years.. I have been an NRA Training Counselor for 10 years..
I shot competition with a .45, but my passion has always been teaching . I have enjoyed seeing many young people learn to handle a firearm, as well as shoot with a good understanding of safety. I enjoy seeing new students learn how to handle a firearm safely, and become efficient with the firearm. I have taught children from the age of 7 to 86. I have been shooting since the age of five, and maintained an FFL for almost 20 years. I worked with Homeland Security for a short period of time. and have taught LEOs from local law enforcement, Border Patrol, and have shot with several agencies.
