Bill is a father of three, a grandfather, and an adamant firearms trainer. He has spent countless hours as a student and an instructor of firearms safety and defensive skills. He enjoys teaching students and instructors of all ages to use firearms safely and effectively. 

"I believe people should learn how to effectively defend themselves whether they are armed with a tool or not. Training your mind is equally as important as training your body."
