Michael is the owner of MKTactical LLC Guns and Training and has been involved in the Firearms / Shooting Range industry for over 22 years.
Starting out in the early 1990’s he started his involvement with firearms as a bulls eye competition shooter, then changed his focus to IPSC (Practical Pistol Shooting) and built one of the first civilian Indoor Ranges in his home town in Germany. Michael headed this range for over 4 years as a volunteer manager until he immigrated into the USA in 1999.
One of the highlights of his involvement was the yearly planning and hosting of the “GS-OPEN”. An indoor match event, which was regularly attended by many top German and European IPSC Shooters.
Michael is a NRA and Utah BCI certified Instructor and teaches many Oregon CHL and Utah CFP classes.
Additional certifications held by him include NRA Personal Defense Inside the Home Instructor, Range Safety Officer and Glock Armorer. Michael heads the USA Sales Office for Kruger Premium Targets made in Germany, and also provides Chronograph equipment in the US from Kurrzeit in Germany.
