Some gun enthusiasts may be familiar with the man who is one of the best shooters in the world, but he is fairly unknown among the general population – that is, until his incredible videos went viral on the internet.
He goes by the name Instructor Zero. He’s a former instructor for the Italian Army and a has become a popular source of entertainment and education on guns.
Here’s his bio, according to LoadOutRoom.com:
- Bachelor’s Degree: Investigation and Security Sciences – 110\110 cum Laude
- Former Instructor 5th Assault Battalion, Italian Military – Folgore Parachute Brigade
- CEO: OUTCOMES Security & Defense Advisors
- President/Head Instructor: Spartan 360 Tactical Defense Group
- Strategic design, analysis, study and implementation of security protocols for three high-security clearance sites relating to I*** (Highest National Clearance)
- Clinical Professor: University level, Sciences for Investigations and Security, Italy
- Chief Security Architect and Current Security Operations Director holding one of the Highest Security Levels for a Civil Industrial Site in Italy
Zero is an undeniably skilled marksman. He was good enough that the U.S. military employed him to train U.S. Marines.
According to Guns.com, the Devils of Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Crisis Response-Africa (SPMAGTF-CR-AF) received a sophisticated shooting lesson taught by none other than Zero himself. It appears that Zero is the “chief instructor of the Spartan 360 Tactical Defense near Naval Air Station Sigonella, Italy.”
The U.S. Defense Department sought out Zero because of his skills and, notably, because he favors the Glock – the handgun that the U.S. Marines were also leaning toward at the time.
He has trained more than 40 Special Forces Units so far, and says training is “an evolution.”
There are many people, though, who believe Zero is a fake. Are they haters or are they on to something?
Zero’s real name is Jeco Biccelli ,and those who don’t necessarily believe his list of credentials say that he has very limited military training and uses a fake Italian accent.
The video below features him in a series of mind-blowingly fast and accurate shooting drills.
Check it out:
In the video, you see Zero firing blind shots from his last frame of reference and fire over his own shoulder using a small compact mirror to guide him.
He is impressively fast at each exercise, which includes transitions between guns, reloading an AK-47 and more.
As evidenced from the video, Zero’s speed and accuracy are spot on time and time again. His weapon of choice doesn’t even matter because he is highly accurate regardless of which gun he uses.
