My name is Tim Shields.  I’m a former police officer and a former deputy sheriff.  I’m also a current firearms instructor.  The love of guns was instilled in me by my father who taught me to shoot as a kid and turned me loose in the woods behind my boyhood home with a .22 caliber rifle at the age of 14.  There were many squirrels and rabbits that feared my name when I was growing up.  🙂

My name is Janet Shields.  I’m a former 911 dispatcher and current firearms instructor.  I’ve been around guns all my life.  My father was a firearms instructor in both the military and the Sheriffs Department.  Gun safety was something that was drilled into my head all during my youth and has stuck with me into adulthood.
