I have been a professional firearms instructor since 2003. I started working at a commercial gun range, instructing new & novice shooters in firearms basics and advanced skills. Over the years as Range officer / Firearms instructor I have taught well over 4,000 people how to shoot handguns and rifles safely in a live fire enviroment.
In addition in 2006 I became a C.F.P approved, Canadian Firearms Safety Course Instructor / Examiner and have been actively doing classes and challenges around central Alberta with over 4700 successful students.
I have been working as a licensed gunsmith since 2005. Initially I worked on all types of firearms, and was a Remington warranty depot for several years. Due to an overwhelming amount of work, as there are not many gunsmiths in Canada, I stopped taking in non-restricted firearms and now specialize in Restricted firearms repair, customization and servicing.
I’ve been a R.C.M.P. approved Firearms Verifier since 2007.
I enjoy many of the shooting sports and try to get to the range as much as possible. I shoot handguns and rifles more than any others. I do some 3 Gun competition, Big Game and Predator Hunting, trap shooting and am currently honing my long distance rifle shooting skills.
Memberships held with the N.R.A, C.S.S.A, CCRA, and various gun clubs in Alberta
