About Don
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.
