Point Blank Range, Range Safety Officer and Pistol Shooting Instructor

NRA Range Safety Officer

NRA Pistol Shooting Instructor

Hailing from Olathe, Kansas and the United States Marine Corps, Cory now calls Mooresville, NC home, and lives here with his Alaskan Malamute/Husky mix named, Eeyah (Inuit for “smoke”). A multi-awarded Expert Rifleman in the Marine Corps, Cory served two years in Okinawa Japan where he was trained in Jungle Warfare. During his deployment as a heavy equipment mechanic in the middle east, Cory was also tasked as a Platoon Sergeant and M249 SAW Gunner on convoy security for the II MEF in OIF -1 (Kuwait & southern Iraq). Later as a reservist Cory developed Patrol Ambush Response Exercises (PARX) and assisted with CQB training. Cory has a keen sense of situational environment awareness and is one of our best Range Safety Officers.

We are anxious to pair Cory with students seeking instruction and application of pistol and rifle shooting. If you would like to meet Cory, come by Point Blank Range and introduce yourself.

Cory’s favorite firearms are:
