•William “Gary”  Peters took his first firearm course in 1986 the NRA Basic Marksman Class at the age of 12. Qualified Expert Rifleman on the M16-A2 in 1992 while starting an 8-year adventure in the U.S. Navy. As an Aviation Life support Technician, served on-board 4 Aircraft carriers and land bases.

•My interest in firearms never faltered, like some people when I got my CWP I wanted more information.

My credentials include Refuse to be a Victim, Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Home Firearm Safety, Personal protection in the home, Personal protection outside the home, Defensive Pistol, CCW, Chief Range Safety Officer. Sabre Personal Safety Academy instructor, Sabre Law Enforcement OC Spray instructor. Mil-Swat-Tac Patrol Officer Tactical Shooting instructor. SCSG Defensive Tactics instructor, Stop the Bleed instructor, You are the help until help arrives instructor, ALERRT Civilian Response to Active Events Instructor. A graduate of Ashworth College with a certificate in Gunsmithing. SWAT Level 1 graduate from Threat Suppression, LLC. Extensive hours of Executive Protection training with Jordan International Combat Systems. Advanced Armed/Unarmed firearm/personal protection training with the International Close Combat Instructors Association. As an instructor I have conducted over 100 courses with over 300 students. I have obtained a blue belt ranking in Total Fighting Concepts with Keishidojo and continue training in Filipino Martial Arts focusing on Kali and Knife fighting techniques. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and helping people advance their firearm /self-defense skills.
