Mike Lies

Instructor Bio

Mike grew up in rural western Kansas. His family was active in hunting, shooting, and reloading. Firearms and teaching have always been in his blood and are his passion. In Mike’s spare time, he enjoys all things BBQ & smoking meats, making sausage, shooting competitions, playing with his St. Bernard/Newfoundland dogs, and hunting. Our last name is pronounced like “Lease” and not as it looks in English. Mike is an NRA Instructor #256101148, Arkansas Concealed Carry & Enhanced Concealed Carry Instructor #22-1542, Range Safety Officer with NRA, Master Shooter with the USPSA shooting sport, and a Range Officer/Match Director for USPSA. Mike believes in keeping classes small, allowing for plenty of individual instruction. We introduce techniques from many top competitive shooters not typically taught in most shooting classes. From new gun owners to expert shooters, our low-pressure teaching style helps students reach their goals in a safe environment.
