Rangemaster and Instructor

Having spent decades in law enforcement and the firearm industry, David Maglio, U.S. Marine Corps and Retired Deputy Sheriff, leads The Academy as Rangemaster and Master Instructor.

Living by the philosophy that skills development is a life-long journey, David’s experience in firearms instruction and competition has earned him both recognition and respect nationwide.

As a Masaad Ayoob Group Senior Staff Instructor and skilled trainer, David pairs technical instruction, safety and observation tactics, and biomechanics of the body with the softer skills of adult learning theory.
