Barb Melloni is The Mako Group’s Technical Product Specialist. Born and raised in Indiana, Barb grew up hunting and shooting from an early age. This early introduction to firearms grew into a lifelong passion and career. In 2011, after scoring expert on the Army Qualification Test (AQT) at Camp Atterbury in south-central Indiana, she began her shooting career as a rifle marksmanship instructor, travelling the country teaching not only rifle marksmanship but also Revolutionary War history, and the history of how this great country was founded. Several years later after moving to Long Island, New York, she obtained her NRA Rifle and Pistol Instructor Certifications and began working as an Instructor with Renaissance Firearms Instruction.
Now, Barb calls The Mako Group home. She is the point person in the Tech department, putting her well rounded knowledge to work to serve our customers’ needs by providing them real world advice on the products that you’ve come to know and love.
