Little bit about me for those who want to know. I was born May 3rd 1984 (go Taurus') in VA. I traveled all over the place when younger but we settled in MD where I grew up. After graduation I worked a plethora of jobs and kind of a jack of all trades.
The one thing that was common was my love for firearms. I followed in my fathers footsteps and went through the police academy and shortly after realized that was not for me (made my respect for Police Officers that much higher knowing first hand what they go through).
I then went into the U.S Army and was a 92Y (Supply). Again my love for firearms drew me back to a job I would be around them and shooting quite frequently. After the military I took a bunch of NRA classes, private sector classes and any training I could afford. I then decided I wanted to officially be an instructor and teach people about firearms.
So in 2019 I moved to WV and decided to get my FFL (federal firearms license) and open up a firearms and training shop. Starting small but I am hoping this is something that takes off and I can do permanently. I have to thank all the people who supported this vision I had and all my students / customers they are amazing.
