Originally from Los Angeles, Bob moved to North Carolina after spending 25 years as a Police Officer and Detective in the Los Angeles Metropolitan area. As a detective assigned to the Violent Crimes Unit, Bob’s experience investigating homicides, aggravated assaults, robberies, and other gun-related crimes and incidents, brings a unique perspective to the training staff. Bob also served as a police rangemaster, and was a member of the initial firearms instructor team that trained and qualified officers to carry the M-16 rifle in the aftermath of the infamous North Hollywood bank robbery. Prior to becoming a California police officer, Bob served in the United States Army as a Military Policeman and Military Police Investigator, and received specialized marksmanship training from the XVIII Airborne Corps Pistol Team and the U.S. Army Marksmanship Training Unit. While Bob enjoys instructing people of all skill levels, his unassuming, patient demeanor is much appreciated by new and women shooters.
