The ‘Master’s Master’ — Chuck Taylor

Chuck Taylor
Chuck Taylor
The only Four Weapons Combat Master in existence prior to 1993, Chuck Taylor earned his title in March of 1981 by being the first man in the world to successfully complete the near impossible course of fire using iron-sighted, unmodified pistol, shotgun, rifle, and submachine gun.

The Master’s Master as he is respectfully referred to by the thousands of students he has trained over the years, Chuck Taylor began his combat weapons training in the military, where he earned EXPERT ratings with the M-1911 .45 pistol; M-1, M-14, and M-16 rifles; M-60 machine gun and M-79 40mm grenade launcher.

Over the four years I’ve known Ignatius Piazza, our relationship has existed as student teacher, then as friends, and now as business associates. During this time, he has consistently demonstrated the highest degree of integrity. When he approached me to assist him developing the best firearms training facility in the world, I was delighted, and immediately accepted. Together, we are completing the task.
