Unlike my partner Mitch, I don’t have an extended shooting background. I started shooting IDPA when I turned 21 and purchased my first pistol. We held local practices once a week and a match once a month where I would consistently place in the top three in the sharpshooter category for stock service and custom defense pistol classes. I started shooting rifle matches this year with Mitch where I bested him at the Full Bore match : ). Since then I have competed in the Practical Tactical rifle matches with Mitch and Action pistol at our local club. Its great to have a partner in these activates because it is a great motivator to improve upon your skills.

I am a family man. I have 3 stepsons and my first, a little girl. I have the support of my family, they know that I have the heart of a true competitor and this is not just a weekend hobby for me.

My personal goals for this year:
Shoot in the Findly Cup this year and finish in the top 20
Shoot a variety of matches
Improve my long distance game out to a mile
Start a local IDPA club at our local club
