Vice President*

Bruce Williams

Bruce is a certified NRA Range Safety Officer and is a member of Marion County Fish and Game in Indianapolis, IN. His interest in marksmanship developed later in life after a shooting occurred only a short distance from where his daughter was practicing at a city park with her soccer team. Fortunately, no one on the soccer team was hurt but the event led to numerous “what if?” questions in his mind and, finally, a decision to learn about firearms by taking some NRA classes. Those lessons led to Revere’s Riders, becoming the webmaster for the Revere’s Riders website and to becoming Vice President.

Professionally, Bruce obtained his Ph.D. in condensed matter experimental physics at IU Bloomington in 1995. Afterwards, he took a slight detour to work with many of the pioneers in medical informatics at Regenstrief Institute. With two young daughters involved in a multitude of extracurricular activities, he left Regenstrief after 15 years and formed two small businesses so he could spend more time with family.
