Friends Of Pat Memorial Weekend

Pat Roger’s is one of those men who exemplified what America is about. Even if you have not trained with Pat, chances are that you have been influenced by his techniques at some point. His work with Gunsite has become the foundation used by most modern trainers.

On May 4th, 2016 Pat left this world to join the warriors he trained. Like his brothers and sisters before he fought alongside going back to 1963 as a Marine right through the week before his death. Few people will ever leave their mark on our Community that Pat did.

To celebrate his life rather than mourn his passing EAG, The FOP of Ohio, the Alliance Police Range and countless other trainers and companies gathered together for a day of shooting and training followed by a day of celebration.

To give you an idea of how involved this event was here is just some of the instructors listed on the event.
