ATHLON OPTICS PROSTAFF | MAIN FOCUS: 3 GUN
I compete in several shooting disciplines. Since 2010, I have primarily focused on 3 Gun due to the fast pace and diversity of the sport. Follow me on social media to see how fun this sport can be!
I was introduced to competitive shooting in 2002 when I joined my high school FFA Trap Team. I focused on clay sports for the next several years at both the high school and collegiate levels. In 2009, I attended my first 3 Gun match and was hooked immediately. I have competed regularly since 2010, refining my ability and my gear to find what works best for me. I’m always looking for a new challenge, and new ways to expand my skillset. In addition to 3 Gun, I also shoot USPSA, PRS, and DMR competitions.
The highlight of my shooting career was qualifying for and competing in a nationally televised shooting competition known as the 3 Gun Nation Pro Series in 2016. The competition consisted of 8 elimination events with 6 competitors per event for a total of 48 of the best shooters in the country. Each event was comprised of 3 rounds, with 2 shooters eliminated in the first round and 1 shooter eliminated in the second and third rounds. The top 2 shooters from each event were invited to the finale to compete for the $50,000 prize. I made it to the last elimination round, falling short of the finale but earning the chance to return to the Pro Series for final season in 2017.
