About Us

ShootRite Training LLC founder and firearms safety advocate Dave Nicioli has over 30 years of experience shooting and handling weapons, both professionally and as a recreational marksman. A U.S. military veteran, Dave was first exposed to weapons in army infantry training and later worked as an aircraft weapons specialist in charge of storing, servicing, inspecting and handling of all types of weapons and ammunition carried on Navy aircraft.

Today, Dave uses his professional training and recreational shooting experience to help both novices and experienced owners become safer, more knowledgeable and more responsible gun owners. Dave believes that firearms proficiency is something that students must continue to hone and develop through training and practice. “As a Certified Illinois Firearms Instructor, my goal is to help students not only improve their shooting, but to safely and responsibly handle their firearms .”
