Our Instructors

Rene’ Hashe Keplinger

Shooting has always been a passion of mine. Serving in the US Army, I cherished every moment on the range. I was proud to be part of the MASH Unit from Johnson City, TN during the first Desert Shield/Storm. Later, I pursued certifications as a Tennessee Handgun Instructor, NRA Handgun Instructor, and Range Officer. After fulfilling all Tennessee state requirements, I realized I had found my true calling. It’s often said that if you love what you do, it doesn’t feel like work.

In 2008, I founded the All American Handgun School. Having served as a US Army MASH nurse during Desert Shield/Storm, I take immense joy in educating others on firearm comfort and accuracy.
