Jeff Kellow

Jeff Kellow enlisted in the United States Air Force, in 1985, and during his 1st duty assignment Jeff was introduced to two members of the Air Force rifle team leading to his desire to learn competitive shooting. Upon discharge, from the USAF, Jeff enlisted, in 1990, with the 161st ARW Arizona Air National Guard. During his deployment to Saudi Arabia, for Desert Shield, Jeff learned that the 161st had an active marksmanship program and was looking for “New Shooters”.

Upon making the “Team”, and competing at the National Guard Combat Championships, Jeff was hooked. For the next 24 years, and in between multiple deployments, he was an active NRA Highpower rifle and Combat rifle competitor with the 161st ARW and Arizona National Guard team. Jeff earned his Distinguished Rifleman, Air Force Badge #290, in 2002. Jeff is in the Arizona Governors Dozen, and has been awarded Elementary Bronze in pistol.

From 1990 until retirement, in 2013, Jeff has been a member of multiple Arizona and Regional Combat Rifle Championship teams. Jeff was also the Arizona Individual Combat Rifle Champion 11 times and the Military Area Council (MAC) Region VII Individual Combat Rifle Champion 5 times.

With military retirement looming and the successful completion of 7 complete rifle builds, utilizing the Accuracy Speaks “Do It Yourself Gunsmithing” program, Jeff accepted an offer, from Derrick Martin, to work as an apprentice gunsmith with Accuracy Speaks and now works for Derrick and Cheryl at the Caswell store.
