About Author

“I worked as a Federal Law Enforcement Officer for over 14 years, in a firearms carrying capacity. First assigned to LAX (1994), then to the Los Angeles/ Long Beach Seaport (1997-2007), I took an early retirement from my final duty station of El Paso, TX (2007-2008). Never having handled firearms prior to this job, I give full credit for my initial shooting lessons and safe firearms handling skills to the government. As I began to compete, I gleaned tips and coaching lessons from the best law enforcement instructors across the nation, turning myself into one of the best, too. I was a firearms instructor in Los Angeles and a national level competitor on a formally sponsored team from 1999 through 2003, being sent all over the nation for pistol match competitions. As a result of this gift of an experience, I went on to set five national records in the law enforcement shooting sports. Check in regularly to read about those and other adventures and misadventures!”

    I just ran across your website..there’s some good information for our troops and I have passed it along. I was at LAX from 1980-1983 before I escaped the madness and will be retiring in 83 days. I taught firearms at FLETC in 1988-89 and won my class at the GA State PPC Competition held at FLETC. When I got back to New Orleans from teaching, I asked to be able to shoot in competitions and was told I had to use my own leave and buy my own ammo (the good old days) so I sold my PPC weapon and said the heck with it.

    I would like to point out, if you don’t mind, that the title on your webpage is spelled wrong. Didn’t know if it was intentional or not but I use to be a proofreader before coming to Customs.

    Are you still in New Orleans? I lived there until I got hired by Customs and sent to LAX for 10 years… sounds like a sentence. I was at FLETC 11/88-1/89, surprised we don’t know each other.
