Meet Stephen Bill

Inline Defense, LLC

My name is Stephen Bill and I am a certified firearms instructor and former United States Marine with over 20 years of firearms experience. My goal is to educate others on the importance of gun safety, instill the confidence of a great marksman, and provide quality training to our armed and unarmed security officers.


To Whom It May Concern,

As the manager of Sidney Thomas Jewelers I have had the opportunity to work directly with Stephen Bill and Inline Defense. As a luxury brand jewelry retailer, we had been a victim of a theft of luxury watches and had a specific need to not only keep that from happening again but to keep our staff and customers safe.

Inline Defense provided us with an affordable alternative to hiring off-duty police officers while having guards that are very professional in their everyday operation and appearance. Mr. Bill specifically was very attentive to our startup and made sure that the officers working in our location had all of the tools needed for the job. He has also worked with our managers and with our property management to make sure that operations can run as smooth as possible.

We are glad to have Inline Defense as our protection.

To Whom It May Concern,

My officers (over 65 of them) and I, have been working with Stephen Bill and Inline Defense for over three (3) years.  He has provided multiple levels of training from unarmed to armed initial, or renewal, range qualifications for both the North Carolina PPSB and the Federal Protective Service requirements of Homeland Security.  The quality of instructions, the emphasis on weapon safety, and the officers’ range score reflect the reason, we have continued to use Inline Defense.

In simple terms, my company’s profit margin has increased since we have started using Inline Defense. Better instructions have reduced training time or remedial training and loss work time. Less time shooting time means less ammo and range cost. With quality instruction and cost savings, we will continue to use Stephen Bill and Inline Defense.
