My name is Ed Pierce. I live in Las Vegas Nevada, and enjoy firearms for sport and recreation. I am “living the shooters life”.
I am developing The Shooters Life to be a complete information source for all things guns and shooting in Las Vegas and the surrounding area. The Las Vegas Shooting Sports link in the top menu will take you to this information.
In addition to the guns and shooting source information, I will, from time to time, write blog posts to share my personal insights, experiences, lessons learned, and new discoveries. I try and leave the reader with something they can take away, something they can learn from my real life experiences as an avid gun enthusiast, and practical action shooter. I may also write posts covering reviews, news, and other topics that might be of interest to gun owners and shooters.
I was the Pistol Range Master for the Sin City Shooters USPSA club for all of 2014 and 2015. During this time I designed stages, lead the build crew, and oversaw matches twice a month at the Desert Sportsman Rifle and Pistol Club.
I am currently a Match Director for Silver State Practical Shooting Club where I run the first Sunday of the month UnitedPistolLeague (UPL) Match.
I got seriously interested in shooting after my first four day defensive handgun course at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, where I’ve taken many handgun, rifle, and shotgun courses. Once I became trained and more comfortable with a handgun, and was ready to accept the responsibility, I began to carry concealed for personal protection. Then in order to continue my enjoyment of shooting, and to become more proficient, I became involved in the shooting sports. I regularly participate in the practical action shooting sports. I started with IDPA, then moved over to shooting mostly in USPSA pistol, and some multi-gun. I spend my time now at Pro Gun Club, where I am supporting Pete Rensing and his exciting new shooting organization, United Shooting Sports Leagues (USSL), where we run matches every weekend.

There are many good organizations that fight to protect our Second Amendment rights, and promote the shooting sports. I currently support primarily the National Association for Gun Rights, National Rifle Association, The Second Amendment Foundation, Gun Owners of Nevada, the Nevada Firearms Coalition, and the Friends of the NRA.
I keep up on firearm information by reading magazines. A few that I read regularly are: First Freedom from the NRA, Front Sight (the official magazine of the USPSA), and the GunMag produced by the Second Amendment Foundation.
I welcome you to visit The Shooter’s Life whenever you need information on shooting for sport and recreation in the Las Vegas area, and to read and comment on my Blog posts.
