Meet The Instructor



James is the HMFIC.  He has been shooting since 1996 and has been teaching in some capacity since 1993.  Having served for a 600+ sworn law enforcement agency, he has tactical experience as a former SWAT officer.  Since discovering competition in 2011, he has been competing on a regular basis and currently holds the rank of Master in both USPSA and GSSF.

James also holds instructor certifications from the NRA and NROI.  He has a passion for teaching and believes good instructorship is a separate skill that must be honed on its own.
