Frequently Asked Questions

Your Questions Answered

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I first like to assess the student's skill level and get them comfortable handling the firearm. After some dry fire drills I'll introduce live ammo and we will practice basic marksmanship skills. From there whenever I feel it is appropriate we'll move on to more advanced drills, all while maintaining focus on the basics of shooting.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I've been shooting for 14 years and training new shooters for the past 2 years. I shoot competitively and was raised in a law enforcement family by competitive shooters as well. I have attended shooting schools with some of the top competitive shooters in america, and have had the chance to train side-by-side with Special Operations members.

What types of students have you worked with?

I work with students of all ages and genders. I train a lot of new, first-time shooters as well as advanced level and experienced marksmen. I have also trained students that have physical disabilities, so I can tailor my courses to your physical abilities. There's always something that can be improved, no matter your skill level.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Just be safe and have fun. While training with firearms is a serious topic, it should never be something that's intimidating or difficult. Some instructors like to throw students in the deep end right off the bat and that's not conducive to skill-building. On the other end of the spectrum you have instructors that may work through lessons too slowly, and the student is stuck learning at half speed. I do my best to tailor each lesson to the progress of the student, so that he/she can get the most out of my training.
