Meet our Instructors:Randy Arrowood is our Staff Instructor for competition specializing in USPSA, Steel Challenge and 3 Gun Instruction. A Georgia native, born and raised in the metro Atlanta area with some kind of gun in hand from an early age. His first competitions involved beer cans from the back porch. From there, he learned the safe manipulation of various firearms and enjoyed hunting and plinking with friends and family. In 2009, he bought his first centerfire handgun and was told about an indoor competition and stuff just got real. After some basic instruction on fundamentals from some of the local gurus, he got serious about training and studying shooting sports. Through independent study, frequent competition and training with many top shooters, Randy has developed an ability to break down the required skills to compete at a high level and help others to develop. After implementing a more structured training program in 2011, his match performances began to improve as well. At the South Carolina USPSA Sectional in 2012, he won his first major match in Single Stack and then at the USPSA National Championships, he won "A" class in Limited. After that, the match wins continued and he reached USPSA Grand Master classification in Limited in 2014. Currently, his primary division and discipline is Single Stack USPSA competition.
