I have spent a lifetime of service to our Country and local communities in South-West Oklahoma. I was born and raised in Chicago, IL and I entered the United States Army immediately upon graduation from Maine West High School.
During my twenty plus years in the U.S. Army I was an Airborne Infantry Paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division. After a short break from the Army I then reenlisted and became a Multiple Launch Rocket Fire Directions Specialist. I served all over the world becoming a Platoon Sergeant and serving in First Sergeant Positions.
While still on active duty within the Army I attended the Oklahoma Counsel on Law Enforcement, Education, and Training (CLEET) Reserve Police Officer Academy in 1998. I served within three different local Police Departments within Comanche County between three different Army deployments. Eventually becoming a Reserve Police Captain within the Medicine Park Police Department.
Upon retirement from the Army in 2007 I was promoted to Assistant Chief of Police within the Medicine Park Police Department and hired as a full time Police Officer. I attended the full time CLEET academy in 2007. Since then I have been promoted to Chief of Police in April 2014 and am still serving in that capacity.
While in the Army I received certifications of both Army Small Group Instructor and Senior Instructor. I have five years experience as an Army Advanced Individual Training Instructor and Senior Instructor. In 2015 I graduated the CLEET Basic Instructor Course and the NRA Pistol Instructor Course.
I am letting you know of my qualifications not to brag about myself, I just want you the prospective student to know that I have trained hundreds of students during thousands of hours of classroom training as an Instructor and that I have personally fired hundreds of thousands of small arms rounds during my lifetime.
During today’s climate of terrorism and civil unrest I have decided to offer students the opportunity to learn how to SAFELY own and operate a gun within NRA standards of training. I also want to help those who choose to carry a concealed weapon in Oklahoma do it safely, responsibly, and within the Oklahoma Self Defense Act (SDA) laws.
I am a full supporter of the 2nd Amendment and the Oklahoma SDA act. I can offer you training with the unique perspective of a U.S. Army Combat Veteran, and a current Police Officer. Therefore I am offering my classes at the cheapest rates possible in accordance with Oklahoma SDA requirements and NRA class material costs. Please feel free to contact me for these rates and class dates.
Stay Safe and God Bless!!
"Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
