About This Instructor
David has been shooting firearms since he was a young man, ultimately starting his formal firearms training when he first attended the “Defender Series” handgun course with Adam Winch of Defenders USA in 2015.
Before then, Dave had competed in “Cowboy Action Shooting” and won multiple events. He has competed in archery competitions and still competes in blackpowder shoots, all while being an avid hunter.
Dave has a love for the individual and Jesus and he believes everyone should have proper firearms training in order to responsibly carry a firearm in preparation for the day they may unfortunately need to defend life against evil.
