Steve and Julie Faris
My shooting career began when I became a Police Officer with the US Navy in 1991.
I was assigned to Naval Air Station Alameda with the last of the Navy's trusty 1911 pistols as my constant companion. I began competing in Navy shooting competitions matches in 1998, as a Service Rifle, and Pistol shooter, earning Expert Marksmanship Medals in both. I started shooting and competing in civilian matches, National GSSF Matches, local IDPA, and Practical Pistol Matches after I retired from the Navy in 2010.
I completed my Master's Degree in Adult Education and Training and left the Federal Bureau of Prisons after 15 years of service to teach full-time.
I have shot competitively on Law Enforcement and Civilian shooting teams as a Shooter and Coach on an average of one to two monthly matches since starting the team over 3 years ago. I also coach a Women's Shooting Team for the High Desert Chapter of A Girl and A Gun Shooting Team.
In my spare time, and on weekends I am not competing, I voluntarily teach USCCA and NRA classes (as a certified Pistol, Rifle, and Shotgun Instructor) at various ranges throughout Southern California.
I am a Retired US Navy Chief Gunnersmate; Defensive Firearms Coach, USCCA Training Counselor, Certified Instructor, Defensive Shooting Fundamentals Level 1 Instructor, SIG SAUER Academy Pistol Instructor, Deadly Force Instructor, Range Master Certified Instructor, MSP Red Dot Sight Instructor, NRA Certified Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun; Refuse to be a Victim; NRA CRSO; US Navy Small Arms Instructor; US Navy Crew Served Weapons Instructor, California P.O.S.T. Certified Firearms Instructor and an Ambassador of the 2a Community!
