I’m not sure if this is the appropriate place to introduce myself-but here I am!
First of all, let me say I am happy to have become a member of the USCCA. It is something I’ve considered for quite a while. It’s time.
I am an avid shooter, and have been shooting for many years. I’m primarily a handgun shooter, but enjoy long guns just as much but not as often.
I have had extensive training in many areas including defensive and tactical handgun, rifle and shotgun. Training has been as diverse as that from the NRA, local training facilities and my favorite and go-to facility, Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. I have attended six Front Sight training programs. I make it a point to attend at least one training program per year as Front Sight offers a variety of training on many levels and many platforms. As for the NRA programs, I am an NRA certified handgun instructor, Home Safety and Range Safety Officer. Private training on the local level has been from from former high-ranking military officers with backgrounds in anti-terrorist threat assessment and mitigation.
Almost five years ago I retired from a profession that took me all over the world. That said, for the last several years I have been working part time as an RSO at a local range. I also do some firearms training as well in several disciples.
My wife and children enjoy the shooting sports and wife and daughter both have License To Carry / Concealed Weapons License and carry daily as well.
Needless to say, I carry at all times. With that I’ll close.
Again, I’m happy to be on board with USCCA and all it offers it’s clientele.
