Your "shooting business" was built on our reputation, a reputation we earned and paid for in blood. Real Green Berets are currently dying on the battlefield and you used our reputation to build your business during a time of war, you are nothing more than a bottom feeding scumbag. You can find my sympathy to your current situation in the dictionary right between "Shit" and "Syphilis".

Now man up and place your apology on your webpage just above your bio and leave it there. I doubt you will but that doesn't matter this thread and your name in the Hall of Shame will be there forever as a lesson and a stark reminder to those that will believe almost anything.

Sir,

To whom it may concern,

It has come to light that I have not been a part of the Special Forces by the group known as Professional Soldiers. I regret to say that their claim is true, I was not a part of Special Forces nor a sniper. I have lived this lie for many years and wish to make amends. I am embarrassed, ashamed and was wrong in making this claim and wish to apologize to all Special Forces for misrepresenting myself in making this claim. I have nothing but complete respect for the proud and honorable soldiers of the Special Forces and highly respect the service they perform.

In addition if I have caused any issues for anyone else due to this wrongful claim I also deeply apologize. I have updated my biography to reflect my true military experience and credentials and have made and am in the process of making personal apologies to family, friends and customers around me that I have deceived.

I was in the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne Division as a paratrooper for only 13 months, and then discharged honorably.

Truthfully ashamed.

And besides, John Kuhl is a current "federal agent" do you seriously think anyone is going to bring charges against him?

This is all in line with the current administration, this is how DHS works. F##K you general public, the feds are in charge.

Now think about all the Law Enforcement Officers "federal agent" John Kuhl has trained and how many of those federal agents (and the general public) are now in danger because of what private John Kuhl, "Special Forces weapons expert and Special Forces sniper" taught them........... chew on that for a minute or two.

Sheriff Shayne Heap doesn’t play;

He told Heap he wanted to retire [from his firearms training business] and work for the sheriff’s office in the county jail, according to the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.

Kuhl in reality had only served in the Army for 13 months as opposed to the 30 years he said he had been in the service, the office said.

Kuhl was arrested on a misdemeanor charge on Monday and posted $1,000 bail. He was also ordered to pay a $500 fine.

Yup,, It is in KIOWA, Co.. :lifter


KIOWA, Colo. - An Elizabeth man who lied about being once serving as a sniper with the U.S. Army Special Forces, pleaded guilty this week to a charge of fraud to effect sales, a misdemeanor.

John Frederick Kuhl, 51, ran a business called Colorado Firearms Training School based out of Elizabeth, according to the 18th District Attorney's Office.

Prosecutors say in 2010, Kuhl met Elbert County Sheriff Shayne Heap at a 4H meeting and told him that he had graduated from the U.S. Army Sniper School and served with Special Forces. He also mentioned that he was an active ICE/Immigration federal agent who would like to retire and work for the Elbert County Sheriff's Office's jail.

Kuhl solicited work from the ECSO and offered to teach courses to Elbert County communities, including firearms training for kids and self-defense courses.

Prosecutors said he repeatedly directed people to his website, which stated his military credentials and background.

In 2014, Sheriff Heap was contacted by the owner of a website called "Professional Soldiers" who provided records from the National Archives and Records Administration. The records showed that despite the defendant's claims of over 30 years of service, he had actually served 13 months in the U.S. Army's 82nd Airborne Division as a paratrooper from June 28, 1983 to July 12, 1984. He was discharged as a Private Second Class with minor formal training in firearms.

ECSO deputies conducted an investigation and filed charges against Kuhl after it was clear the defendant had falsified his military credentials in order to gain access to government contracts, according to prosecutors.

I like what the DA prosecuting the case said.

"A man who would profit from falsely claiming to himself the honor of earning a Green Beret and having served with those elite warriors who make some of our country's greatest sacrifices deserves more than a conviction; he deserves scorn. He has earned disgrace. In a few breaths, repeated over three decades, Kuhl stole to himself credit reserved for those real patriots who earn it through blood, sweat, and tears. That he did so by exploiting the patriotism of his neighbors to put money in his own pockets is disgusting. It is ironic that the same Constitution defended by our heroes in uniform, also protects Kuhl from greater criminal liability for lying about being one of those heroes. There may be other places in the world that tolerate this outrageous lying, but this community is not one of them. I hope this misguided person uses the next thirty years to redeem himself by making amends for the lies he perpetrated for the past thirty."

The Elbert County 4-H Shooting Sports Program competes in a variety of events that require different courses for their practice sessions.

But recently completed renovations at a Kiowa facility will allow the 4-H group to practice at one place.

The Colorado Firearms Training School announced Feb. 7 the completion of improvements to the school’s training facility at Quail Run Sports.

John Kuhl, owner of Colorado Firearms Training School, said he is happy to instruct the 4-H members, and he believes they will benefit from the renovations.

“Before we can actually start competing and trying to get the kids to shoot at competition level, we have to get their rifles zeroed, making sure that they’re exactly tuned-in to the 100-yards, which is where the kids need to be shooting at,” Kuhl said. “The improvements are going to greatly improve the shooting sports program because we’ve been having to travel from one place to do some classroom coaching and to do some minor sighting in, and then traveling to a different range to do the long-range stuff. So now we can do all at one location.”

Kuhl said the process of upgrading the facility took a year and a half.

“That’s including the planning and permitting process. The actual renovations took us about two or three months,” Kuhl said.

This scumbag continues to teach. He also continues to say he was a member of the 82nd Airborne Division, what he doesn't say is that he was thrown out of the mighty 82nd Airborne Division after only "serving" for 12 months.

And no more NRA certifications, wow John Kuhl, where did they go? Please don't tell me they were "REVOKED" by the NRA because you were a liar and a fraud.

His once wiped website is also back up and running and now he works/owns Colorado firearms training school and quail run Colorado. So if you're looking to receive training from a lair, fraud and criminal John Kuhl is your fraud.

Criminal you say? Yes, federal agent John Kuhl was arrested for fraud, posing as a "Green Beret" for financial gain. He was arrested and pled GUILTY.

John Kuhl who's the one vouching for your character, your mom? Please name one federal agent or LEO that vouches for your character, just one.



Elizabeth man pleads guilty in military fraud case; John Kuhl lied about Army past to gain business
John Kuhl claimed he was ex-Green Beret sniper

KIOWA, Colo. - An Elizabeth man who lied about being once serving as a sniper with the U.S. Army Special Forces, pleaded guilty this week to a charge of fraud to effect sales, a misdemeanor.

John Frederick Kuhl, 51, ran a business called Colorado Firearms Training School based out of Elizabeth, according to the 18th District Attorney's Office.

Prosecutors say in 2010, Kuhl met Elbert County Sheriff Shayne Heap at a 4H meeting and told him that he had graduated from the U.S. Army Sniper School and served with Special Forces. He also mentioned that he was an active ICE/Immigration federal agent who would like to retire and work for the Elbert County Sheriff's Office's jail.

Kuhl solicited work from the ECSO and offered to teach courses to Elbert County communities, including firearms training for kids and self-defense courses.

Prosecutors said he repeatedly directed people to his website, which stated his military credentials and background.

In 2014, Sheriff Heap was contacted by the owner of a website called "Professional Soldiers" :D who provided records from the National Archives and Records Administration. The records showed that despite the defendant's claims of over 30 years of service, he had actually served 13 months in the U.S. Army's 82nd Airborne Division as a paratrooper from June 28, 1983 to July 12, 1984. He was discharged as a Private Second Class with minor formal training in firearms.

ECSO deputies conducted an investigation and filed charges against Kuhl after it was clear the defendant had falsified his military credentials in order to gain access to government contracts, according to prosecutors.
Kuhl was arrested on July 17 and posted a $1,000 bond in cash the same day.

District Attorney George Brauchler stated:

"A man who would profit from falsely claiming to himself the honor of earning a Green Beret and having served with those elite warriors who make some of our country's greatest sacrifices deserves more than a conviction; he deserves scorn. He has earned disgrace. In a few breaths, repeated over three decades, Kuhl stole to himself credit reserved for those real patriots who earn it through blood, sweat, and tears. That he did so by exploiting the patriotism of his neighbors to put money in his own pockets is disgusting. It is ironic that the same Constitution defended by our heroes in uniform, also protects Kuhl from greater criminal liability for lying about being one of those heroes. There may be other places in the world that tolerate this outrageous lying, but this community is not one of them. I hope this misguided person uses the next thirty years to redeem himself by making amends for the lies he perpetrated for the past thirty."


Senior Deputy District Attorney Doug Bechtel stated:

"Every day, thousands of people serve this country in the armed forces. The honor, accolades and respect that are earned do not begin to recognize the sacrifice they make every day. To have someone try to take advantage of the respect we all have for the service members is unconscionable. I respect the 12-and-a-half months he served, but that respect is tainted by his egotistical lies of service. His actions lessen the honor of all those that have served and continue to serve. We have District Attorneys in the 18th Judicial District that are actively serving and many more that have previously served. I find it poetic that a group of soldiers discovered his web of deceit. Even after their service in the military, they continue to protect our community."

Both Brauchler and Bechtel both served in the U.S. Army.
Kuhl was fined all court fees and ordered to pay a $500 fine associated with the misdemeanor.
