John Pope

My goal as an instructor is to introduce new and beginning shooters to the shooting sports in an environment that will have them enjoy their experience while learning critical safety and entry level skills. I teach a safety first method that focuses on the fundamentals of shooting and owning a handgun.

After teaching my 3 daughters how to shoot and conceal carry, and working for Target World as a Range Safety Officer for two years, I observed the need for instruction focused on brand new shooters, and newer shooters to the sport that want to hone their skills.
