the Miami Probation Office in 2001. Chris is a founding member of Team Virginia and has claimed two second place and

Three time state champion and former Fort Lee Pin Match Champ Glenn Blandford heads
up Team Virginia's Training and Education Program. State and NRA certified as a Firearms Instructor, Glenn took
two individual titles in the 2001 State Championships; won the state Tactical Pistol Championship in 2002 and, along with

Brad Holmes shot his way to the State Rifle Championship, claiming first
place using a .22 caliber long-gun older than he is in 2001. In 2002, the veteran hostage negotiator and Texan shocked
the field with the State Championship in Service Revolver.
Transplanted New Yorker Oscar Perez, a pistol sharpshooter and 2001 3rd
Place finisher in the State P&P Championships, suffered a heartbreaking setback in the Tactical Pistol competition
in 2002. The Glock-wielding Perez was hampered by a malfunction in his first run, and was disqualified in his final
attempt for crossing the shoot line with what appeared to be a third place finish wrapped up.
