Sniper Central Instructors

Sniper Central does not just employ just any ol’ shooter for our instructors, but rather, we use only those that have the background skills required, and more importantly, those that have a passion to teach! We insure that all of our instructors do not have egos and are there to make sure the students get the attention they need to develop their skills and learn the subject matter being taught. Every one of our isntructors is easy going, approachable and wants to help the students learn the finer art of long range marksmanship. Whether you are a new long range shooter attending a basic Long Range Precision Marksman course, or a field experienced operator attending a POST certified high angle engagement course, we will be professional and insure you are satisfied with the material being taught.

Take some time and review the background of each of our instructors below. Each of these instructors will teach the different classes in different roles at various times, so you may see any or all of them listed below.
