Jeff is a current Police Officer/ SWAT Operator/ Sniper in a suburb of North Dallas, TX. He has been a police officer for 24 years, a SWAT operator for 20 years and a sniper for the SWAT team for 18 years. He holds a Master Peace Officer License and is a TCOLE certified instructor, firearms instructor, and Texas Department of Public Safety certified LTC Handgun Instructor. He has been the adjunct instructor for numerous Craft International classes including sniper and combative courses.

 

He was a lead instructor for Craft International at several civilian classes with an emphasis on pistol/carbine classes before Chris passed away. He has provided training for individuals ranging from private citizens to SWAT and military personnel. He competes heavily in competitions all over the United States to include SWAT competitions, sniper competitions, three gun matches, USPSA and Steel Challenge. Being a competitive shooter has provided him with a special skill set that allows him to teach a wide variety of shooting techniques from new shooters, to home defense, to high-level operators. Jeff’s teaching technique isn’t barking orders and treating you like a recruit. He is a two-time runner up competitor in the North American Sniper Championship, Master Steel Challenge PCC shooter, Class "A" PCC, and  Class B Limited Pistol USPSA shooter.

His unique approach is based on positive reinforcement. We get numerous students that have said they were worried about taking a class from a bunch of SWAT guys but were pleasantly surprised at how nice, calm, and FUN the instructors were.
