“Winning isn’t everything,” says Jarrett Grimes. “Winning is the only thing.” An intense presence on the gun range, Jarrett taught tactical shooting to former Top Shot contestants J.J. Racaza and Jermaine Finks. He served in the U.S. Air Force for 20 years, retiring as a combat arms instructor. Jarrett also spent 14 years as a police/SWAT officer and has been working in the homeland security field for the last 10 years. The winner of multiple IDPA matches, Jarrett—like his good friend and fellow Homeland Security agent Gary Quesenbery—is one of fewer than 70 Triple Nickel coin holders in the world. In addition to targets, Jarrett is currently taking aim at a master’s degree in criminal justice.
