In 1984 I graduated from the police academy, and was trained and qualified with the standard police sidearm of the day, a .38 /.357 caliber revolver.
At that time, standard issue semi-automatic handguns would come a few years later. In 1989 I transitioned to a Sig Sauer pistol and 45 ACP and am currently certified to train you with whatever weapons platform you currently use or thinking of using.
I have never considered myself a great shooter, and will be the first to tell you that "I don't know everything".
I think I was nudged in the direction of firearms training by some great peers that saw something in me.
I was first certified as a firearms instructor in Massachusetts in 1996.
I have stayed within that discipline ever since.
"Consistency" is probably the best way to describe the way I was taught and continue to teach to this day.
I credit some wonderful mentors through the years to this day, and with them in mind strive to get anybody shooting and shooting consistently almost immediately.
I surely don't know it all, but to all those who have found my way helpful, you get my all every time out.
Straight talking and straight shooting... Consistency!
