A Great Start Shooting School

Teaching Safety is my aim - One on one Coaching or small group classes - Pistol Permit Class

Manny Bragg​ from Pro Shooting Sports - Check out his "About Page"


Jay Hirsberg - I was lucky enough to train with Jay, prior to him leaving New England.  Because of him, I even had a chance to train with Max Michel for a day. Check out Jay's website


Spector tactical - Was one of the 1st local training I did here in CT. They train all over the state. Website


NRA Instructor and Training Counselor Certifications - I have been an instructor since 2012 and a training counselor since 2019


IDPA Safety Officer Certification - IDPA was my 1st shooting sport and my 1st certification in 2011.


Tatiana Whitlock - She is based in Maine, but I have been able to work with her at A Girl & A Gun Conference in Texas multiple times. When attending one of her concealed carry classes, my favorite quote from her as she described the best clothes to conceal carry, "Is your life worth a wardrobe change?"


Kathy Jackson - Author of one of my favorite books, "The Cornered Cat". You can grab it on Amazon or can pick up a copy here when you come for a lesson. :)


Caleb Causey from Lone Star Medics - If you have met Caleb and trained with him you will know his quote, "Drink Water" He is also why I have an actual first aid kit with me almost everywhere I go.


​Mike Seeklander - Amazing FREE training on FB weekly. He also has a few books that we work out of here at the school. Check out his offerings at his website.  He also has a FB Group that has a ton of free training in it.


Operation Specific Training - My last training visit to Sig Academy was to work with this group. I always enjoy learning from the instructors and learning how they teach. They travel all over the country. Check them out and see if they are coming to a range near you.


These are the ones I could think of off the top of my head, there are more. Always keep training!



Babes with Bullets was the 1st camp I ever went to that was an all ladies event. It was also my 1st multi day training event. The trainers here are all world class and internationally known in their sports.  Here are the instructors that I have had the pleasure to work with directly: Kay Clark Miculek, Lisa Munson, Sheila Brey, Lena Miculek, and Debbie Keehart.

Nothing I teach you is my own. I have learned from many great instructors over the years.  If you get a chance to train with or utilize their training materials, I highly suggest that you do!  This is probably not an exhaustive list, but it's a start and I try an expand it every year.
