It all started with a BB gun John's father got for him to teach responsibility. From there, his fascination for firearms grew. Growing up in a rural desert community, his firearm traveled with him like a canteen or a backpack. It was a part of him and used only to gather food and to protect himself.
Times have changed but that experience, and the tips he learned from his Navy Doctor father, helped him become an Expert Marksman in the United States Air Force and eventually, a Certified Firearms Instructor. Having a SEAL Team Sniper in the family has also been an asset in John's ability to engage targets at long distances with precision.
As a graduate of the Riverside Sheriff's Academy (Palm Desert Campus), he was the highest scoring marksman in the history of the academy. He carried those skills and traits with him to the Federal Air Marshal Service where he became a Preventive Radiological Nuclear Detection (PRND) and 4th Amendment Instructor and then as a DHS Certified Instructor for the National Nuclear Security Administration's Counter Terrorism Operations Support (CTOS) Program.
Firearms have been a part of his existence for many years and instructing, has been a passion of his that he enjoys immensely. His specialty has been instructing first-time and women shooters. His ability to remove fears associated with firearms and empower men and women to pick up a gun and learn to shoot is uncanny.
