Shooting since age ten, Sandra Linares is more than familiar with firearms. She is a proud United States Air Force veteran. She spent her days in the military as a Security Specialist, and was trained as an M-60 Specialist. She was entrusted with protection of our country's nuclear weapon storage areas. Other firearms on which she was trained were an M-16, M-203, and M-148. Additionally she was qualified as an expert marksman on the M-16.
The passion to educate men and women in the proper use of firearms grew, so Sandra became an NRA Certified Instructor. She has achieved certification for the following courses to instruct: NRA Basic Pistol, NRA Basic Rifle, NRA Personal Protection In the Home, NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home, and NRA Range Safety Officer. In addition, she graduated as a distinguished graduate from Front Sight Firearms Training Institute in 2017.
Sandra has also spent over a decade training women of all ages and skill levels on the basics of pistol shooting. She has experienced great satisfaction during that time watching women, who've never operated a firearm, realize they are fully capable of defending themselves and their families.
Sandra is a graduate of University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) with her Master of Accountancy. She is also a Certified Fraud Examiner, and has taught at UNR a class in Financial Investigations since 2011.
