John Deloach has been a "teacher of teachers" for many years now. During his law enforcement career John became an expert in firearm safety and use. He trained police officers how to shoot. He not only protected the citizens of Birmingham but was chosen to protect United States presidents during their visits. Take a look at John's impressive credentials below.
John likes to have fun demonstrating "Cowboy Shooting". He entertained us here at Green Ridge Shooting Range on our opening day. Of course, with a name like "John Wayne", he would have to be great with a six-shooter.
