PATRICK McNAMARA
Patrick McNamara spent twenty-two years in the United States Army in a myriad of special operations units. When he worked in the premier special missions unit, he became an impeccable marksman, shooting with accurate, lethal results and tactical effectiveness. McNamara has trained tactical applications of shooting to people of all levels of marksmanship, from varsity level soldiers, and police officers who work the streets to civilians with little to no time behind the trigger.

His military experience quickly taught him that there is more to tactical marksmanship than merely squeezing the trigger. Utilizing his years of experience, McNamara developed a training methodology that is safe, effective and combat relevant and encourages a continuous thought process. This methodology teaches how to maintain safety at all times and choose targets that force accountability, as well as provides courses covering several categories, including individual, collective, on line and standards.

While serving as his Unit’s Marksmanship NCO, he developed his own marksmanship club with NRA, CMP, and USPSA affiliations. Mac ran monthly IPSC matches and ran semi annual military marksmanship championships to encourage marksmanship fundamentals and competitiveness throughout the Army.

NICK ATKISON
I began shooting when I was young, dove hunting with my father at age 9.At age 18 I began competitively shooting in USPSA Pistol Limited Class. Aftergraduating from college, I put competition shooting on the back burner topursue a career in law enforcement. After a few years policing, I began to shoot USPSA Pistol competitions again in Production Class. Since 2010, I have progressed into shooting 3 gun competitions locally, and across the nation earning wins and multiple high finishes amongst the biggest names in the sport.In 2014, I earned my way onto the 3Gun Nation Pro Series, where I compete against the top 60 shooters in the Nation and finished ranked 11th. My finish in 2014 staked my claim as a pro shooter on the 2015 3Gun Nation Pro Series,where I qualified for the Pro Championship for a second consecutive year.Outside of competition, in 2010 I became a certified TCLEOSE FirearmsInstructor. I feel I have the ability to teach all levels of shooters new skills, but also the patience to work with new shooters, to introduce them to the sport or self defense side of shooting. In 2015 I gained employment as a full time private firearms instructor.
