What I Can Do For You.

I train LEO/Mil units, almost always special operations or SWAT/Special Tactics units.

I train LEO/Mil firearms instructors to teach excellence in shooting as well as how to quickly and accurately diagnose and fix their students.

I produce well organized,  fair, fun, and innovative shooting matches.  See Hard as Hell and Red Oktober as examples.

I train individual and small groups of practical shooting competitors.

I write articles, how-tos, and evaluations about shooting and firearms-related topics.

I evaluate and test gear and provide private performance-oriented feedback for manufacturers and prospective purchasers.


Call or e-mail me to discuss how we can work together.
