Bryan D. Proctor II - Owner/ Lead Instructor

Born and raised in Arlington TX, I joined the United States Air Force as a reservist/ guardsman in 1999 at the age of 20.  A distinguished graduate of the United States Air Force Security Forces School and Ground Combat school, I returned to my unit and served numerous deployments which included a deployment to South America prior to 9/11. 
I was hired as a Police Officer for a local police department where I was assigned as a patrol officer in 2001.  Immediately after 9/11 I was activated to active duty for a year and half serving in deployments to Afghanistan among other locations.  My final military deployment occurring in August 2005 for Hurricane Katrina in which I took part in a small task force to control and oversee the security of New Orleans and the evacuation of the Superdome and the New Orleans Convention Center. 
I was honorably discharged from the USAF at the rank of Staff Sergeant.  In April 2017, I retired with over 20 years in Law Enforcement .
Over the years I have come to realize the importance of personal protection and defense of our second amendment rights.  I enjoy passing my knowledge on to others and take pride in helping people protect themselves and their families.
