My shooting career began with my law enforcement career in 1995. I was fortunate to be mentored early on by good people and great shooters. I quickly discovered "you gotta go to know". I have traveled the country exploring the various shooting disciplines trying to learn from the best on the planet. Everything I learn, I bring home and share with Law Enforcement in my community. I have been a certified LE firearms instructor since 1998. I've been on my departmentís SWAT team since 2003 where I serve as a counter sniper, and instructor. I've worked uniform patrol, plain clothes, undercover and I teach our stateís concealed carry certification classes. I've attended more law enforcement training than I can remember - hosted by countless law enforcement agencies and military units. No single agency can assemble the talent that can be found at a major shooting match. I personally feel that nothing drives us to excel like competition; and nothing will bring your weaknesses (tactics, gear or fundamentals) to light like competition. It's much better to learn a lesson at a match than on the street. My personal growth as a student and teacher would not be possible without learning from all the great shooters I've met at the matches below. What I've found at every match is that the shooting community is always willing to help new, less experienced shooters. My suggestion to anyone who plans to defend the constitution or their family is to sign up and compete in a major match.
My greatest pleasure in shooting is watching my 3 sonsí developing interest in action pistol and 3gun shooting. We have a great time shooting and they are learning the skills necessary to allow them to defend themselves should the wolf come to the door.
