     Alan is a United States Army veteran. With over 14 years in the Army. He learned how to shoot different firearms, from then on he fell in love with shooting and made it his goal to learn as much as he could so he could teach other soldiers to shoot efficiently as well. Throughout his career in the Military, he has trained well over 2,000 shooters. His career included over 10 years in the Infantry and then went on to Aviation and Logistics. When  he transferred over he also became his company's trainer for firearms. He has 2 combat tours amongst other tours states side, to include Hurricane Katrina, Inauguration Security, and the Baltimore riots. Once Alan got out of the military, he has always wanted to bring his knowledge of proper firearms training to the public. And with that came Peacock Training Institute.
