High Caliber



Heather Allen

Heather Allen is an NRA certified instructor based out of Orange County, California. She graduated from California State Long Beach with a degree in Criminal Justice and a minor in Spanish. She loved her time interning with the Attorney General’s Office in Honolulu, Hawai’i. Working with victims of crime with the District Attorney’s Office in Newport Beach and Westminster instilled a passion for teaching women to be able to defend themselves.

Heather then went on to work for the California Rifle and Pistol Association where she fights for Second Amendment Rights for all Californians. In April of 2018 she became a certified NRA instructor in handgun and opened High Caliber the same year. Heather is extremely happy to be in the position to teach not only new shooters the basics of handgun but also informing seasoned shooters about their right to carry.

If Heather is not on the range you can find her surfing at San’O or horseback riding on the trails. Heather married Tyler in 2008 and loves the opportunity to work with him at High Caliber when the need for another instructor arises.


Tyler Allen

Tyler is a Naval Special Warfare Combat Crewman veteran who served overseas in Iraq, Colombia, and many other countries. He is currently a deputy for the LA County Sheriff’s Department and also an NRA certified instructor in handgun. If there is one skill Tyler will have you remember after your class and well beyond is to “KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER” until ready to shoot. Tyler brings not only his firearms expertise to the range, but also his calm, composed demeanor which allows new shooters to feel relaxed and confident.


”I woke up at 4 in the morning shaking because I was so scared. I had never touched a gun before in my life. Heather was so calm and explained everything in great detail which made it an enjoyable experience. I can’t wait to go shooting with her again!”

“Heather made my first time shooting a positive experience. It felt great to be able to load my own magazine all by myself. I highly recommend High Caliber to any novice shooter!”
