James Beck

Instructor Bio

I was exposed to guns at an early age with my father mostly hunting small game and birds. After highschool I moved to Brandon WI. Worked in Oshkosh since 1980. Shot trap on local trap teams then joined the ATA and shot registered trap for many years. Currently I pastor an non denominational church in Appleton Wis. with my wife since 1996.I enjoy hunting game birds both upland and waterfowl. I have hunted game birds in Canada, Mexico, and Argentina. I also like to fly fish, with an annual trip to Wyoming in the early fall. I am an NAUI and TDI certified Scuba Dive Master. I am certified by TDI (Technical Diving International) as a mixed gas diver with a certification to 200 feet for decompression diving. Most of my diving has been in cold water in lake Michigan diving various historic wrecks on the west shore. I came to the pistol craft not long ago but with my background and experience felt I could teach and communicate with people.
