Robbins and Dave Keller are your instructors at the Sierra
Firearms Academy. We were the primary, full time Police
Firearms Instructors for two of Nevada's largest Law
Enforcement agencies for over 28 years combined. Mike
retired from the WCSO in 2004 after nearly 27 years of
service. Dave retired from RPD in 2006 with over 30 years.
Together we were responsible for the basic and continuing
firearms and tactics education for over 800 sworn Police
Officers, including special teams. We also taught the
High Sierra Police Academy firearms, and other skills.
Combined, we have nearly 60 years of Law Enforcement
experience, over 47 years of SWAT experience and over 50 years of teaching firearms skills.
And, we have taught a few thousand civilians their shooting
skills too. We are both very skilled shooters, Mike is a USPSA
Master Class shooter.
Our newest partner is Pat Lee. Joining us with a very similar background, he'll make a great addition to the team. Welcome aboard Pat!
Pat Lee has 27 years of Law Enforcement experience with the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO), proudly serving our local community in Detention, Patrol, Investigations, SWAT, and Training. He became a firearms instructor in 1995 and continued to build his skills throughout his time as a Law Enforcement professional, teaching firearms, TASER, and Force on Force tactics to new recruits, Patrol Deputies, Supervisors, and SWAT Team members. Pat is also an instructor at the Center for Domestic Preparedness and has imparted his knowledge and experience to law enforcement men and women all over the United States. He has a true passion for public safety!
We teach a POST certified LE Firearms
Instructor course, meaning we teach and certify others to be
are certified Instructors in Handgun, Shotgun, Rifle and
Submachineguns, by H&K, NRA and numerous others.
Certified Armorer's for H&K, Glock, Sig Sauer, Beretta,
Remington, Smith & Wesson, Ruger and more...
is what we do, and all we do. Who do you want to learn the
most critical skills you'll ever need from? Do you want
accurate legal information from those who know? Or is
something less good enough? Our training is street learned and
proven, not "theory" or something read in a gun
magazine. We have been there and done that, so know what
we are talking about..
Anyone can get an instructors
certificate by taking just one class, but what knowledge & experience comes with
it? What do you suppose they really know about it? Lot's of people
can teach you how to shoot, but it's WHEN to shoot that
train in a professional new training facility, and a
professional range facility. We are not the cheapest guys in
town, but you will get what you pay for. We
have been in this business continuously since 1994 serving
Northern Nevada shooters. We will be here for the next 10
years or so too.
