Matthew Maruster

I have been teaching firearm skills for the last 18 years. Starting as an instructor in the Marine Corps Infantry, and continuing as an Assistant Rangemaster as a Police officer, and now instructing citizen defenders. My experience comes from my experiences as a Combat Infantry Marine, Police Officer, Marine Marksmanship Instructor, and advanced tactical training classes. I am an NRA and USCCA certified instructor as well as certified to instruct Concealed Carry dot Com’s Guardian Pistol curriculum.

I am honored to be a contributing writer for Concealed and aim to educate firearm owners and stimulate discussion when publishing articles. My goal is to help people understand the many facets of gun ownership and personal protection.

I take a tremendous amount of pride in helping Americans responsibly exercise their 2nd amendment rights and helping them become the first line of defense for themselves, their families, and the community.
