OPS Director & Chief Instructor
Andy Stanford has been involved with private sector combat shooting since, 1977, when at age 15 he joined the South West Pistol League founded by Jeff Cooper. Andy competed in the 1978 and 1979 IPSC Nationals, but soon realized that this shooting sport was largely incompatible with serious combat training.

I can always ask him. I'll be seeing Andy Stanford and Paul Gomez again in January.mrostov said:19th place? Wasn't that shooting games hobby club kind of small back then? Did they even bother recording who finished clear back in 19th place?
What an odd coincidence, JD is using the handle of 'andy' and then I run across this guy (in the quotes below).
JD, he was in your shooting games hobby club at the same time you were. Did you meet him? Maybe he remembers you and maybe everyone can clear some of this debate up.
