After getting married, Jay and his wife, Nina, first came out to Jackson while living in a van (https://www.jayxnina.com/) with plans of only staying for the summer as they worked as rock climbing guides. However, after falling in love with the Tetons, it was no surprise that he also stayed to work that winter as a Private Ski Instructor (email firstname.lastname@example.org for bookings) at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
Originally from Southern California, Jay Cummings grew up near the beach, playing team sports, and going on lots of trips with his family! His interest in firearms began in college when he began taking handgun training courses in Nevada. Jay would chuckle as his mother would often make comments about her dream of him becoming a firearms instructor someday…
After discovering JHSE, Jay embraced the idea that “the best way to learn is to teach.” Since being trained, he has hit the ground running and now competes in both handgun and long range precision shooting competitions! He is excellent training children, families and individuals. Safety is a priority!
When he is not on the gun range, Jay Cummings is out filming and editing videos for his Travel YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/@
