Please take the time to watch my video and see if you don’t agree with me.

I was wrapping up a few gun reviews, everything was going great, the day was beautiful, and I was having an amazing time. It was one of those days where everything was going great and I had a moment so I decided to take it and share some personal feelings.

I have been shooting at this range since I was about 15-16 years old and I have grown to appreciate it very much.  I began shooting here with my father. Here he is with his M1 Garand.  This was one of the last times my father and I shot together before he passed away.

My mother still comes along and lends a hand with gun reviews, she is a tough lady and skilled with a handgun.

A place to visit and catch up with fellow members and old friends

Take care of the Earth, our land, and our ranges. Get to know the guys that work at the local gun stores, chances are they know better than the clerks at the big box stores, and they are our neighbors. Be courteous to others at the range and set a good example for gun owners all over the country. Be safe and be well.


Oh and be sure to know the 4 rules of Gun Safety

Thank you to Randy and John at Young Guns in Apex NC for the help over the years,

I spent much of my youth involved with firearms and felt the call early on to the United States Marine Corps, following in my father's and his brother's footsteps. Just after high school I enlisted and felt most at home on the rifle range, where I qualified expert with several firearms and spent some time as a rifle coach to my fellow Marines. After being honorably discharged I continued teaching firearm safety, rifle and pistol marksmanship, and began teaching metallic cartridge reloading. In the late 1990s I became a life member to the National Rifle Association and worked with the Friends of the NRA. Around that time my father and I became involved with IDPA and competed together up until he passed away. I began reviewing firearms for publications in the mid 2000s and have been fortunate to make many friends in the industry. Continuing to improve my firearms skills and knowledge is a never ending journey in which we should all be committed. I am also credited as weapons master on a few independent films.
