Active CA Law Enforcement Officer
CA DOJ Certified Firearms Instructor
I was born, raised and have lived in Merced county my whole life. Although I grew up around firearms and those professionally trained to use them, my personal experience using firearms did not begin until I was a teenager. Since then, I sought out both formal and informal trainings from those around me who were knowledgeable in various weapon platforms. Law enforcement trainings provided me with experience for the tactical use of modern semi-auto handguns, shotguns, and the AR platform. After working at a local firearms dealer, I met others who were like minded in my enthusiasm for firearms, where I learned some in the craft of assembling and repairing firearms. I believe there is always something new to be learned to improve our skills, and I find joy in teaching others to help them improve as well.
While I appreciate and thoroughly enjoy the craftsmanship and the joys in shooting most types of firearms, I typically choose the more practical and tactical firearms when I go out to the range.
