About this pro

NRA Certified Pistol Instructor with 30 plus years of firearms experience. We don't just learn about firearms we learn what out takes to be a responsible firearms owner. You'll develop your skills, muscle memory and attain the confident mindset to be well on your way to being a skilled shooter. My teaching style has been honed over decades in the hospitality industry. It'll be my pleasure to assist in your firearms safety journey. 

I enjoy seeing the progress my students make. The clear competence and confidence they have with their firearms. During my time teaching I've had students that just want to learn a bit and then tuck the gun away somewhere become 2-3 times a week shooters.

    HEY TONY, THANKS FOR THE EMAIL AND THE INFORMATION CONTAINED. I JUST ORDERED THE ELECTRONICS MUFFS YOU SEND A PHOTO OF. WILL HAVE TO CHECK WHICH DAYS WILL FIT INTO MY SCHEDULE. WHERE DO I PURCHASE THE AMMUNITION FOR THIS GLOCK THAT I WOULD NEED FOR MY PROTECTION? A NAME WITH ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE GREAT. APOLOGIZE THAT I CANNOT LOCK IN A DATE NOW, BUT WILL TRY TO GET IN T LEAST ONE MORE SESSION. THANKS AGAIN, STAY SAFE.

    Tony is the best. Hands down. He’s patient and he knows how to put himself in your shoes so he can explain things in a way that you’ll understand, making him a phenomenal teacher. I never imagined I would ever feel comfortable with a firearm, before my session with Shooter Excursions. I had a handgun for so many years and no matter how many times I went to the range, it never helped the way Tony was able to help. You can tell how passionate and dedicated he is.

    After my inaugural trip to the gun range with a friend who gave me a quick tutorial, I was completely overwhelmed by the responsibility of gun ownership. And then I met Tony. He took an intimidated (and honestly quite afraid) novice and has turned me into a competent and confident handgun owner. He places a huge emphasis on safety and has great knowledge about firearms, always taking time to patiently answer my many questions. After asking why I wanted to learn how to shoot and what my goals were, Tony and I shot several handguns together and he helped me choose my new gun. As someone who has limited strength in her left hand, which can make it hard to rack a gun, having Tony’s guidance made all of the difference. My gun fits my hand and works well for me. I would tell anyone to work with Tony. He’s the best.

    I'm one who in most cases jumps right into the fire in a "ready, shoot aim" kind of way. Tony has been extremely helpful in refining my approach to firearms while not stepping on my enthusiasm! He is extremely knowledgeable in a way that a novice can understand and appreciate! He has a knack for putting you at ease and makes you feel comfortable. After spending a few hours on the range, Tony and I went shopping for a handgun. I couldn't be happier with the results! I know our journey has just begun and I'm very excited.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

This session is quoted for one person which allows us the time for you to become intimate with your firearm. You will learn  all of the skills by performing the tasks while I assist. In my decades of teaching I've learned that not every student learns the same way so we will determine the best method for you. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

NRA certified instructor with decades of teaching people. 


How did you get started teaching?

My time as a chef has required me to be a patient teacher. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I've been fortunate to have trained well experienced shooters but more importantly I've been honored to have assisted many first time shooters. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I typically like to relate to learning about firearms to learning to drive. I look forward to talking to you so I can explain that comparison in greater detail. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Take the time to call someone you might be interested in helping you with your journey. A good instructor will ask you several key questions that will help you both understand the fit. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

How will you address the mistakes when they happen?

I'm scared, what will we do to ease into this journey?
