  Michael Melhus
Certified Instructor

    I am a Certified Tactical Pistol Operator, an NRA Certified Pistol Instructor, State Patrol Certified CCW Instructor, and a Certified Distinguished Expert Marksman in three separate disciplines of Pistol. I have been a competitive pistol shooter, but my passion is training others in the use of the pistol for self defense. I enjoy taking people without formal handgun training and working with them to understand how to apply the principals of self defense effectively based on their level of skill and their available gear. I have been performing 1-on-1 training, security forces training, and everything in between for several years, and love working with shooters of all stripes. I live on an acreage north of Omaha with my wife and four daughters. I have a particular interest in gun safety because I live in a home with small children where guns are the norm. I look forward to working with you!

  Jonathan Lordino
Certified Instructor

    I was born and raised in the panhandle of Nebraska with firearms in my life since I was born. My family is very involved in hunting and shooting. My background includes military and law enforcement firearms training, NRA firearms training, and one-on-one instruction. My credentials are through the NRA and include: Certified Pistol Instructor, Range Safety Officer, and Nebraska State Patrol CCW Instructor. I am also a Life member of the NRA. I enjoy working with shooters of all skill levels. The biggest fulfillment is seeing a shooter progress above and beyond their expectations. Self-defense is a huge aspect in the world today and where I focus my training. Teaching people the art of self-defense is something I am passionate about and hope to give people different options to use confidently. I love to have fun, but safety always comes first! I look forward to seeing you in the classroom or on the range!

    I have loved shooting since a young age. I started off shooting BB and pellet rifles and progressed from there. I served in the Nebraska Army National Guard and shot on the pistol team for our company. I also served in the Air Force and had the chance to learn much about shooting during my military service. I have also competed in IDPA and USPSA for many years and am a Lifetime Member of the NRA. I have been teaching for over 15 years and am a NRA certified Instructor in many different disciplines. I am also a certified Arizona CCW instructor. I am an experienced shooter with pistols, rifles, shotguns and fully automatic guns.
    My father was career Army so I have lived in many different places but call Omaha my home. I have one daughter and two awesome grandsons. I look forward to teaching them how to shoot as I did with my daughter. Who happens to shoot a 1911 and makes me proud (Big Smile). My two favorite things to do are flying remote control helicopters and shooting. I look forward to helping you attain your shooting goals here at the Omaha Gun Club.
