Dez Mendez

Dez has been with The Shooting Range since 2018. It was a combination of shooting rifles as a child and working for us that she developed a love for handguns. So much so, that she proudly owns a few handguns and joined our awesome team of instructors. Her favorite thing about teaching is simply enriching the student with the knowledge of handling a firearm safely and by doing so, it takes the fear of being around a firearm and turns it into a positively fun and exhilarating sport!
