Don has been an avid firearm collector and shooter most of his life. He started competing in the practical shooting sports in 2012 with USPSA and GSSF competitions. Don is now classified in the Production, Limited, and Carry Optics divisions for USPSA but mainly competes in the Open division.
He became a Range Officer for USPSA in 2012. Don also co-founded the USPSA club in 2013 that evolved to become our club at DSS (formerly North East Ohio Shooters) and will continue to be the Match Director for 2019 and the foreseeable future. You can usually find Don on the weekend shooting at DSS or one of the many clubs around the area…he has a great love for the sport and is a terrific ambassador.
Don enjoys working with new shooters and juniors. He is a Glock Certified Armorer, former competitive fisherman and excellent mechanic…ask to see his new “off-road” vehicle when you visit the range!
