I started as a competitive shooter when I was 11 years old in 2001. Fast forward 14 years, I'm now 25 years old, and have competed in over 100 major tournaments, including 15 World Championships. I guess in some ways, that makes me one of the more experienced competitors on the circuit, but I still consider myself one of the new kids on the block, especially when it comes to 3 Gun, which I started in 2012.
Sometimes training to be the best isn’t fun. It can be hot, raining, cold, and somedays your heart just isn’t in it, but your next match is coming up, and you aren’t going to let yourself or loved ones down. My biggest goal every time I go to the range, whether it’s for a match or practice, is to learn something. A lot of times, I end up learning something totally different than what I may have had in mind when I go out to the range, but those are the times you learn the most. The more you learn in practice, the more you can focus on putting together a smooth run in the match.
My sponsors include Wilson Combat, Freedom Munitions, X-Treme Bullets and Hogue Grips. I'm also part of the marketing team for Freedom Munitions and X-Treme Bullets, and run a website for instructional shooting videos, MyGunTips.com.
