An NRA Certified Instructor qualified to teach in the Pistol disciplines. I have become familiar with firearms like so many, learning from the ground up. Beginning this journey on Friday Night shoots at Genesee Conservation League in Penfield, NY. To more formalize training under the guidance of my Mentor & Training Consular, Dr. Eli Saber. From his patience's of instruction, I have learned a great discipline, "A man will only fall to his lowest level of training!" And that a man's name is far more valuable than riches.
