Dave retired from the Army after more than 21 years of service. The majority of his time was assigned to the 75th Ranger Regiment and the US Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU).
Following multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, his crowning assignment was when he was directed to stand up the “Wounded Warrior Training Group” (now referred to as ITG) in the USAMU. The mission of ITG is to increase lethality and survivability across the force by combining solid marksmanship fundamentals and material advancements along with combat relevance.
During his time at USAMU Dave earned his distinguished marksmanship badge during his first year assigned to the Service Rifle Team and later became a certified FBI firearms instructor.
Currently, he lives in Phoenix, Az, and works in the firearms industry. When not traveling for work he teaches shooting courses ranging from introductory to advanced skills and specialized home defense.
We’re happy to have him as a resident Subject Matter Expert at the Hyve.
