Doris and I have become the "Senior Shooters" in the sport of still target shooting. We are now the oldest shooters to have shot the sport.
Along the way, we've earned 4 World Championshps and set 4 World Records. We are also the only husband & wife team to have held simultaneous World Records in the sport.
I've been shooting the sport since 2001 and Doris joined me in 2006. That's a long time to shoot full power 12 gauge and 20 gauge turkey shells, time after time in events all over the U.S.
We've traveled many thousands of miles over the years and met many fine folks in all parts of the country. There is really no way that we'd have met so many of them if it were not for this sport.
We've also been very fortunate to have had great sponsors over the years. Those sponsors include Advanced Technology International (ATI), Hevi-Shot, TRUGLO, Rudy Project USA, Mossberg, and EvoShield - ShooterShield. We've also tested and evaluated countless products over the years.
I had no idea when I began shooting this sport that I'd be involved in it so long or that Doris would join me. Our partnership has really been the highlight of all of it. Doing something that you love with a person that you love is really the best thing that you can ever hope to do. Doris has kept me grounded in the sport and helped me to remember why I do what I do.
As we enter another shooting season, I am so thankful for all the support that we have received from so many people. We'll do our best to continue the tradition and spread the word about this wonderful sport.
