Over Watch Defense is owned and operated by me, Travis Rector and I am a former Police Officer who was a member of SWAT. I am an NRA Certified Handgun and Riffle Instructor and I offer a diversity of affordable classes (see Classes page) for responsible adults and approved age children. My supportive wife Ginney and I have a family that we love and we believe in our rights as US Citizens to bare arms.
More about me… In my tenure of being a police officer, I worked on cases capturing dangerous fugitives of justice working hand and hand with local and federal law enforcement agencies. I served on SWAT as entry team, K-9 handler and sniper. During my service, I gained the knowledge, expertise and training to execute countless raids and hostage stand-off situations. I’ve worked with the US Marshalls, FBI, Secret Service, US Army and SBI for personal security detail, capturing fugitives, drug raids and much more. I’ve been involved in dangerous situations that included shootings, Government detail and Presidential detail. I’ve been an avid gun enthusiasts, shooter, instructor and collector for many, many years.
I want you to feel comfortable with me in knowing that when you come to my classes that you’ll know you have an instructor that’s “been there and done that”. How can a great instructor teach people such as yourself if the instructor has never been in situations such as what you’re learning about? Well, with me, you don’t have to worry about that because I have the knowledge, skills, mindset and ability to ease you into learning the CORRECT way to defend yourself and learn the fundamentals of safe gun handling. I make the the learning environment great for retaining the information given to you so you can apply the skills properly.
