Thirty years ago, I was tricked by a colleague into shooting small-bore target pistol. I loved it, but was never competitive beyond a regional level. I became a student of the gun and took up combat handgun five years ago. I’ve received a hundred hours of instruction and several hundred of competition.
I worked as a design engineer on nuclear power plants, weapons-class lasers, and lithographic X-ray sources. By day I’m now a mad scientist employed by a defense contractor in California.
