Bill Rogers

Bill Rogers is a former FBI Agent, police instructor, successful inventor, published author and is very well known in the shooting industry. He invented the first Kydex holster in 1972 and started the Rogers Holster Company in 1973; purchased by Safariland in 1985. Rogers has been a world ranked IPSC shooter, a state trap champion, and has over 40 years of shooting competition experience.

In 1975 he established the Rogers Shooting School, which quickly earned the reputation as “THE Shooting School” for operators of special military units, law enforcement and numerous federal agencies such as the United States Secret Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and others. It still maintains that reputation after 40 years of operation.

To train for success under real life time conditions, Bill Rogers developed a training program and a high speed moving target system (The Rogers System). The program replicates the minimal amount of time a shooter will have to successfully neutralize an adversary. Using this system, the Rogers Shooting School specializes in teaching students to successfully engage and hit small reactive targets that are moving and only exposed for a fraction of a second a.k.a. Reactive Shooting. Bill Rogers is the founder of Reactive Shooting and continues to this day to make shooters safer and more competent gunhandlers, as well as giving them the skills to survive a real life gunfight.

Bill holds hundreds of US patents and has invented many of the holsters and equipment used by police and military worldwide. To this day he continues to develop cutting edge technologies for the shooting industry. Odds are that if you’re a member of the US Defense intelligence, military or law enforcement communities then you have at some time in your career utilized a holster system developed by Bill Rogers.
