About this pro

Retired Navy SEAL with over 28 years of experience in teaching, coaching and mentoring. I take pride in my ability to build a plan that best suits your budget, experience, and schedule. 

I have every pistol, rifle, and shotgun qualification available to the military. From the first-time shooter to someone looking to learn more I put the same effort in.

I am also a certified NRA instructor...meaning I can certify you in the state of Virginia for a concealed carry permit.

Making people more confident in all aspects of life.

    Mr. Renner was professional detailed and patient. Very respectful. Myself being new to using a gun he adapted his method to go through all the basic of safety and using the handgun.

  • Sylvia Hottinger

    I have no experience with guns, but I feel very safe, comfortable, and at ease with my teacher. I am able to understand and apply what he teaches me when we target practice at the range.
