Luke Tarbutton
General Manager, Lead Instructor, and Owner

Our founder is a U.S. Army combat veteran from 25th Infantry Division where he served as a scout sniper. He is a Licensed Instructor through the N.R.A., Texas D.P.S., and the U.S. Army. He started this business and brought this team together to offer training to shooters of all different skill sets.
His father taught him to shoot when he was just a boy and he fell in love with it. From that moment on was spent honing that skill. He started this company to bring that joy and skill to the people of Angelina County. Part of his goal in this business is to further Gods will and to create an environment that makes it easy to see Him in this world. He always puts God and his family first. Luke has a lovely family with two beautiful little girls.

Billy Donaldson
Range Director and Owner

A student of the very first ShootPerfect pistol course, Billy has been on board since the inception of this team.  Through the years, he has trained under the supervision of Luke Tarbutton and brings unique skill sets to the range.

Billy’s background is heavy in mathematics and construction, and he oversees the implementation of the latest/greatest/safest range equipment and operations.  He works behind the scenes whenever possible to ensure that everyone is safe and satisfied.

His ultimate goal is to honor God in all things and to create an environment that makes a stranger feel like family while keeping the range(s) safe and fully functional.

David Salerno

David was in Law Enforcement for 30 years and is an NRA certified instructor and an LEO firearms instructor in handgun, shotgun, and patrol rifle. During his career, he was a SWAT team member, on the entry team and assigned as the primary sniper, and he also acted as the firearms instructor for the department and the team. He is also an armed transport instructor and was lucky enough to be the first K9 officer in his department.

He seeks to train from other instructors as often as possible to bring the best training available to his students. He has a passion for teaching firearms and self-defense related subjects. We feel that he is a high-quality instructor is a very good addition to the Shoot Perfect Team.
