Phil Strader started competitive shooting in the early 1990’s while he was a new police officer in Danville, VA.
By 1997, when he moved to become an officer with the US Capitol Police, protecting congress, Phil’s competition skills had improved, to find him ranked a Grand Master in USPSA competition. Since then he has not missed a Nationals or missed finishing in the top 10 of the Limited Division.
He’s now in Oklahoma, where Phil served for two years as the Chief Instructor at the United States Shooting Academy in Tulsa. In that role, he revived the 1993 one-time event from our past, the Pro-Am skins match that serves up exciting Television each year. Phil now competes in USPSA, IDPA, and Steel Shooting and serves as an instructor in tactics and marksmanship for Law Enforcement and Military units.
Phil shoots the Smith & Wesson M&P in competition as a pro shooter.
