As a child, I went to multiple state and national competitions for air rifles and air pistols, under the instruction of Lenny Anderson. He taught me the fundamentals of marksmanship, which I still apply and teach today. As I grew older, I received my conceal carry license and have carried a handgun for most of my adult life. I am a proud Air Force veteran, and an avid hunter and outdoorsman.
