Topher started his firearms journey as a hobby over 20 years ago while working for AOL. This passion led to becoming a Range Safety Officer, which then led to becoming an instructor. As a civilian instructor for over 15 years, he’s worked with many various local Agencies to assist with training and recertifications. He’s also the Ranges Director (Archery, Shotgun, Pistol and Rifle) for one of the local Izaak Walton League of America chapters, focusing on hunter safety, firearms safety, and wildlife conservation.
