In his "day job", Keith is a telecom analyst for a credit union.

Born and raised in South Central PA and resides in Carlisle, PA.  Phil holds a BA in Advertising and Public Relations from Penn State University, and is currently employed as a pricing analyst in the construction materials industry.  His passion for shooting developed at a young age.  As he got older, he became very interested in handguns, and took up pistol shooting as a hobby. Later in life, Phil was introduced to practical pistol competition via TV and the internet, and have been hopelessly addicted to it ever since, shooting IDPA matches, and soon after becoming involved in USPSA pistol and multi-gun competition. Today, Phil shoots roughly 15,000 rounds a year through his Beretta pistols at local, regional, and national matches.  Phil holds an Expert classification in IDPA Stock Service Pistol and a B classification is USPSA Production.  He is also an NROI certified Range Officer.
