Mark has been shooting for over 15 years. What started with hunting in the woods of SC as a youth quickly developed into a passion. In 2011, he began to take his shooting seriously after discovering how much he didn’t know after attending his first professional training course. Since then, Mark has amassed over 1000 hours of professional training from some of the best instructors in the business.

Mark has worked to build relevant, up-to-date, and professional training programs for military, civilian, and law-enforcement clients in topics ranging from performance shooting, church safety and security planning, and Night Observation Device (NODs) integration and techniques.

Many esteemed members of the Law Enforcement community have attended JBS Training Group classes, including members of the 19th SF Group, Homeland Security, NYPD, US Marshals, FBI and more. 

 

When not teaching, he also competes in shooting skills matches to include 2-gun as well as USPSA where he has achieved the classification of Grand Master, he is the head of the firearms training division of his church safety-team, and he helps local farmers thin their nuisance animal populations by night hunting.

When not on the busy with his work, you will probably find him in his yard working on another home project for his wife of 10 years, Brittany, and if not, his two kids are sure to find something for him to do with them.
