Meet Doug Logue, husband and father of three teen daughters.
He’s an electrician and jack of all trades for a municipality. Shocking, right?
Interesting tidbit: He went to college initially as an ornamental horticulturist. So he knows how to make your weeds, flowers and trees thrive (or not so much) and how to wire your house or the streetlight out front. He’s also a heckuva snow plow driver and active in his church.
His wonderful wife Adrienne volunteered to work as a staff member and Doug and the girls tagged along. They did this for about three years or so. He’d been to plenty of classes over the years himself. After seeing us teaching our coursework dozens of times, he saw how much our instructors and staff loved helping everyday people learn how to empower themselves. He shared our excitement watching people go from “scared of the gun” to empowered and confident in knowing they can use that tool to protect themselves and their families from violent criminal attack.
So, he asked to join us. He’d already seen us at our rowdiest at our post-class dinners and at our GSL Defense Training internal training sessions and social outings. He knew of our shared psychological defect that makes us thrive on helping others learn skill sets that might save their lives someday. He decided to take the plunge and got certified as an NRA Basic Pistol Instructor and interned with us officially.
It took about five minutes before we all knew he was a natural at helping people overcome their fears and learn solid fundamentals while having a good time – from the very youngest kids to seasoned adults.
Some of us think he’s just keeping his skill sets sharp as his daughters are at that dating age. Standing over 6′ tall and weighing a pound or two, he can be a very imposing figure. He’s really just a big teddy bear though.
Doug and his family have been a wonderful addition to the GSL Defense Training family.
