Phil Strader

Phil Strader was the firearms instructor for the U.S. Capitol Police for eight years, won the Steel Challenge three times, has been on two U.S. World Shoot teams and has won more than 40 state, regional and national shooting competition titles. Yet very few people outside the competitive shooting community even know who he is. Perhaps this is because he’s so unassuming about what he’s accomplished. He’s usually the first person to poke fun at himself.

Stader is now a chief product designer for Sig Sauer.
