Don started shooting at around the age of 9 and has been involved with firearms ever since. In college he started in martial arts classes and his shooting evolved from a separate activity into part of an overall personal protection strategy. Aside from his primary goal of safe practice, training, and instruction, Don seeks to integrate physical force training (such as martial arts) with firearm training. During all training he seeks ways to bridge the training gap between the two and bring this integration to his trainees.
