Instructor Bios

The individuals that make up the WCDI instructor team are all NRA certified firearms instructors, as a minimum. Ranging from civilian firearms enthusiasts to skilled active law enforcement officers and military personnel, the WCDI training team is a mix of valuable skills and perspectives.

Aaron Watson

He has competed in local law enforcement shooting competitions. He also enjoys staffing at community Cub Scout BB gun ranges and Boy Scout rifle and shotgun ranges. Aaron brings a good perspective as a daily handgun carrier and someone who regularly carries concealed and openly. Aaron has a passion for teaching new students and getting them into firearms sports and activities.

Tami Watson

With 16 years of law enforcement under her belt, Tami has been using firearms for a long time. She brings a female law enforcement's perspective to our team. She enjoys teaching new female shooters and women self defense classes.

A note from Tami:
I am passionate about empowering women of all ages, professions, and backgrounds. The victimization of women in today's society can be minimized if women refuse to allow themselves to be easy targets, change their mind sets, and heighten their awareness of their surroundings. I speak publicly on this topic. I have teamed up with the Batesville YMCA to teach a women's safety course. 

I feel very fortunate to have received the specialized training in covert narcotics investigations, Rx drug investigations, and legislative lobbying. I have worked jointly with federal and state agencies to include but not limited to the DEA, FBI, ATF, US Customs and Indiana Attorney General's Office. I look forward to utilizing my training and experience on a local level.
