Larry was introduced to USPSA in 2002 starting in the Production Division with a Glock 19 and then a Beretta 92G-E2. He has years of experience shooting custom SV and STI Limited and Open guns, but primarily shoots the Glock 24 and Glock 35 in the Limited Division today. Larry also enjoys shooting local Steel Challenge matches with his USPSA Limited guns and Sig 522 in .22LR. As somewhat of a "stunt" for the PowerFactor Show, he decided to shoot one IDPA match with the Glock 19. Now he's hooked, has just joined IDPA, and plans to shoot more local and state matches. Larry has been a USPSA life member since 2007, NROI Chief Range Officer since 2008, and achieved a ranking of A-Class in the Limited 10 division in 2012.
