ICE Agent Arlo Arcinas walking through one of NRA's Tactical Police Competition courses in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Albuquerque, New Mexico - Standing approximately five feet six inches tall with a touch of gray scattered about his the black matted coiffure, you probably wouldn't think that Arlo Arcinas as a federal agent just by looking at him. He doesn't exactly fit the physical stereotype. But that's one of the things that makes him such a valuable asset. That and the skills that earned him a spot on the ICE National Pistol Team.
