Team ITI was formed in 2010 with a goal of proving that the same superior instruction and high-quality training that the military and law enforcement markets have come to expect from ITI, is also applicable to the competition shooting world.
The team is made up of four men and two women who excel in their respective divisions through out USPSA, IDPA, and 3 – Gun. Team ITI will serve as ambassadors to the shooting sports industry and will show how skills learned from their many courses in Virginia and Texas can benefit a modern day “gunfighter.”
"As Captain of Team ITI, I'm proud to call these five other fine shooters my teammates," commented Brandon Wright. "Each one of us brings a different skill level and field of expertise to the team and we are eager to compete and win at the highest levels this year in IDPA, USPSA and 3-Gun matches. For the 2011 season, Team ITI was able to achieve top honors in winning (27) Divisional Titles, (14) top 3, and (9) top 5 finishes.”

It's hard to believe that Morgan Allen has only been shooting pistols since 2005, considering he has 21 IDPA State and Regional Division Championship titles under his belt since 2007.
