Halls Firearm Training

When Les Hall retired in 2008 after 30 years of law enforcement and teaching middle school math, he wasn’t ready to pull up a rocking chair and pass the time away. He wanted a hobby that could be fun, pay for itself, and use some of the skills he’d learned in years of law enforcement and teaching school.

Les’ son, Jim, came up with the obvious solution. Being a life-long hunter and gun enthusiast, Jim had gone through the NRA training program and had gotten his certification to teach the NRA’s pistol shooting courses. So, he suggested to his dad that he might consider firearms training as a hobby that could provide a lot of self-satisfaction, help a lot of people, and basically pay it’s on way.

Thus, Halls Firearm Training was established in May, 2009.
