Michael D. Deans

Co-Owner // Instructor

Michael D. Deans was honorably discharged from his service in the United States Marine Corps in 1970 after returning from his tour in Vietnam as a forward observer. He then started his long career in law enforcement with the Houston Police Department in 1970 and continues to be an active officer over 47 years later. He now works for the city of Ozark, Missouri in their court system as the court bailiff. He is also a police officer with another local police department. He is an instructor in several areas including a MILO Range Simulator. Mr. Deans is now living the dream he had over 30 years ago, training officers and citizens on a simulator, saving lives. Mr. Deans is a unique instructor in the area since he as been a street officer and survived numerous dangerous human confrontations where he was a victim of deadly weapon assaults and had to make those split-second decisions that you may have to make someday as a target of violence.
