I am retired from the U.S. Army where I served in many positions including armorer, training officer, safety officer, firearms instructor, and medic. I have a track record of excellence in the use of firearms and am an accomplished competitive shooter. I have worked as a certified civilian and military firearms and tactical instructor for Range 1 Inc., Bunnlevel NC. I am currently a licensed teacher in the state of North Dakota and serve as the Municipal Court Judge for two rural cities. I pass annual handgun qualification with local law enforcement agencies at 90% or better. Since retiring from the U.S. Army I have become one of the few ND Dangerous Weapons Permit Test Administrators that conducts the Class 1 test almost exclusively on a regular basis (this requires both classroom and range instruction). All of my "Defensive Firearms" courses are ND POST approved.

My instructional strengths are in firearms marksmanship and manipulation, legal considerations concerning the use of force, as well as fundamental tactics and strategies related to personal safety, officer protection, and concealed carry competencies.
