ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Ken is a highly decorated veteran of the U.S. Army Air Cavalry with two combat tours in Vietnam, as well as being a firearms instructor. He is also a former police officer and deputy sheriff. Like his military career, his law enforcement career also included serving as a firearms instructor. A native Texan and lifelong rancher, Ken originally developed a portion of his ranch into a private shooting range to give his family and friends a place to enjoy the shooting sports. From that original range, Ken has developed this world-class facility where nationally known instructors now offer training for military, law enforcement and civilian shooters. Ken is an NRA Certified instructor as well as a Texas LTC Instructor.
