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.

Holiday Closing Alert! Memorial Day, 2020

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever,  we're going to be closed for Memorial Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Monday May 23rd-25th,  2020.

I know what you're thinking--what???  The whole country's been closed down for two months!  Whaddya mean, you're taking off?  Well, we haven't been closed.  We've been here working harder than ever, due to a wildly increased demand for our services, so honestly, the Crew and I desperately need these days away.  No telephone calls or emails will be answered.  The admin office needs a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, May 26th, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  And please, don't forget why we honor Memorial Day.  We should never--never--forget The Fallen.  

For those of you already in production, the production crew is running full steam; Judith (QA--Quality assurance, our Princess of Perfection) and Jay (Our Doyenne of Customer Delight) will be here and working, checking books and sending them out, so please, don't worry.  It's just we lazybones in the admin office that need a break!
