About our website! 

As a handgun instructor for over 40 years I have been privileged to instruct military personnel, law enforcement personnel, and private men and women who appreciate the right that our 2nd Amendment to our Constitution provides. I started out early on as a young adult. I joined the NRA when I was 19, and I am a Life Member. Back then, in the 1960s, you could purchase a surplus Colt 1911 .45 for $17 from the NRA! I not only bought one of those back then, but also an M1 Carbine for $17. I wish I still had them as they are now worth over 500% more!

During my enlistment in the Navy from '63-'65 I was a small arms instructor. In 1967 I was a Reserve Deputy for the Los Angeles County Sheriff. My duty handgun was a .38SPL Colt Officer's Model Match - a superb handgun, and if you ever find one, buy it!  On March 20, 1967 my partner, Reserve Deputy Michael Wigderson (Milton Berle's Nephew) was gunned down standing next to me!  He was hit in the chest with two .22LR hollowpoints and died a few minutes later. This tragedy had a profound effect on me and I became obsessed with proper training and safety.

In 1979 I was a Reserve Deputy/Pilot for the San Bernardino County Sheriff, and resigned in 1984 to pursue other activities. I continued my firearm instruction, which continues to the present time.

Today I hold a California Guard License with Exposed Firearm Permit in .38SPL, .357 Magnum, 9MM, .40S&W, and .45ACP. I am also a member of the Contra Costa Sheriff Posse, a Founding Member of Oathkeepers (www.Oathkeepers.org), a NRA Training Counselor, NRA Basic/Advanced Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun Instructor, NRA Chief Range Safety Officer, NRA Law Enforcement Handgun Instructor, NRA Personal Protection Inside & Outside (CCW) instructor, and a California BSIS Armed Guard instructor.

Besides the NRA, another excellent organization is the "100 CLUB"!  Google the one in your county and join!  The 100 Club provides immediate assistance for the families of slain law enforcement and firefighter personnel. Immediate cash payments are delivered to the families to assure that expenses are covered for things such as food, rent or mortgage payments, and the like until other funding kicks in. The 100 Club has been in existence for over 50 years!  Get involved!

Lastly, it is my continuing goal to accomplish two things: the first is to assure that law-abiding citizens exercise their 2nd Amendment right to own and bear arms for self-protection; the second, to assure that a citizen owning a firearm maintains proficiency in using that firearm in a safe and proper manner.

If you agree with my continuing goal, please contact me!
