Growing up as a young child on a big farm, I was passionate about 3 things: Dogs, Guns, and Motorcycles. To me, nothing else mattered. I worked hard everyday to improve my skills and ability to shoot guns, race motocross, and train my dogs.
To this day I am still passionate about those same 3 things.
As a shooter I have accomplished a great deal and I have been able to help others who have jobs that require them to be proficient with any firearm. This of course also extends to K-9 handlers.
In 1992 I joined the United States Marine Corps (the best place in the world for a kid from WV who loved to shoot)
