Michael Ross Seeklander

I am known as a nationally ranked competitor on the practical handgun competition circuit. Most people fail to realize that I have extensive formal training and experience in the military and law enforcement as an operational police officer, U.S. Marine, Federal Air Marshal, and Federal firearms instructor. I also have formal training in delivering instruction as well as in all phases of training development. I began my competitive shooting training to increase my skill level for a future fight with a handgun or rifle. After getting my feet wet at a few competitions, I found myself motivated to reach the elite levels of practical shooting. During this time I realized the importance of using efficient and correctly designed training programs to help meet my goals. I am the recipient of numerous awards and honors in the law enforcement community, and on the competitive shooting circuit. While working full time, in various occupations, I have placed highly in every major practical type championship on the circuit. I have numerous wins at major matches including a second place finish at the 2007 European Handgun Championship, and top five finishes at the U.S. Nationals, the World Speed Shooting championships and NRA Action Pistol championships. I am classified as a Grandmaster (multiple divisions) by the United States Practical Shooting Association and a Master by the International Defensive Pistol Association. As the Director of Training at the U.S. Shooting Academy, my primary focus is instructor training, curriculum development, and specialized instruction.

T'was the Night Before Christmas... 

 (With apologies to Clement Clarke Moore, may he forgive my doggerel...)

...and all through the shop,
all we minions were working,
   until ready to drop.

The ebooks were flying,
the covers were spare,
The edits were crazy,
   with "one more thing I must share!"

We waited for Santa,
'Cuz we love old Saint Nick,
But Hitch made us work,
   Waving 'round an old stick!

So slave we all did,
And made all your books,
So that Hitch would say now,
   that we're off the hook.

Come today we're off,
to rest up our fingers,
Our hats we will doff,
   No books they do linger.

But we'll all be back,
Don't give it a thought,
for like all wage slaves,
   we're easily bought.

We'll be back on the fifth,
all eager and fresh,
All ready for you,
   after a well-deserved rest.

So Hitch wants to say,
very strongly and loud,
THANKS ALL YOU GUYS,
  you're the best type of crowd.

Indy and Len and Hitch and the gang,
will be back on the 5th,
to do books with a BANG!

In the meantime don't worry,
if you're in a hurry,
'cuz some poor guy got stuck
   sitting here like a duck.

Your emails we'll receive,
so no need to grieve.
We'll be a bit slow,
but we're raring to go.

Your books will be worked on,
your edits still made,
we're just resting a bit,
   before we all fade.

So please excuse the delays;
It won't be for days;
we'll jump on your queries,
   for your wondrous new series.

We waited for Santa,
'Cuz we love old St. Nick,
And sure 'nuff he came,
   It wasn't a trick.

And as he rode off,
into the night,
I could swear I heard Hitch yell,
   "That Edit's Not Right!"

We'll be back on the morning of January 5th; we'll be here parttime between now and then, thanks.
