In 2008 he graduated from Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command. After retirement Steve received his NRA pistol instructor certification. The Bullet Ranch was the vision of Steve’s and he has been involved in the development of the store/range, a project that took close to 4 years. A close friend told him once, “if it was easy, everyone would be doing it”, something he took to heart leading to the completion of this project. “Being in law enforcement for 17 years and a having been a gun owner for most of my life was the driving force. I am a firm believer that guns are part of the fabric of America. It is my goal to provide a safe place for people to learn, practice, and enjoy shooting sports.” Steve….
