Michael's experiences in competitive shooting completes our instructor vast array of knowledge. He is accomplished in handgun, shotgun and precision rifle competitions and brings those 30 years of experiences into the classroom. In addition to that, Michael is a computer programmer, network security professional and all around network and computer savvy person. He has a background of working with government agencies in both classified and non-classified projects.
Michael was introduced to firearms as a young boy who was shown the ropes by his great uncle, a decorated WWII soldier and firearms instructor. He attributes his discipline around any firearm to that upbringing.
Starting at the age of 10 shooting IAPC 50 meter matches, he moved on to PPC 1500, Skeet and Trap, Bowling Pins, and falling plates, silhouettes. He even competed in a 1000 yd grouping competition at age 15.
Today Michael is active in the PRS series of precision rifle competitions where he has learned how to develop real world shooting scenarios we employ here at MPAG. He uses his skills in programming, electronics, construction and firearms to develop C.O.F. setups that mimic the real world events we read about in the news.
