Hello, Originally from the East Coast, moved to Salem (Keizer) Oregon in 1994. Have been teaching firearm to various levels, specialize in close quarter combat which focuses on things ranging from how to control a situation without a firearm, how to get to your firearm at close range attacks. Also teach Bram Frank's Gunting/LLC tool. I favor full-size 1911 but have been known to carry a Glock 19 with built in Crimson Trace laser (got this just before CTC machine broke) or a S&W 342-PD which is my pocket firearm using a Safariland model 25 holster while my semi-automatics I use Kramer Leather hosters with 5.11 belt. Outside of the above I love the Northwest and all it has too offer, much better than the East Coast.
