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.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.) 

Old Timey Switchboard Operator Cartoon

 

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

 

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
