How Jake got into the shooting sports

I have been a lifelong outdoorsman who used to receive bricks of .22LR as payment for mowing lawns while growing up on the Iron Range in Northeastern Minnesota, where the sound of rimfire was as common as car horns in the Twin Cities. Formerly a competitive tournament golfer during the short Minnesota summers, I changed gears and made a commitment to action shooting in 2013 after a back injury forced me to set my clubs aside and pursue a new passion. I had previously dabbled in a few USPSA matches, but after shooting my first 3-gun match I knew the fast-paced chaos of 3-gun was a perfect fit for my personality and broad skillset.

I got dragged into it by the persistent staff members at Arnzen Arms! Andre would not stop pestering me until I finally tried a USPSA match. When I did, I wished I had started action shooting sooner. It was a blast, and I was instantly hooked.

How Mike got into the shooting sports

I did some trap competition when I was younger, however my interest in action shooting came about because I was looking for a martial art to do when I moved to Minnesota. I had been doing lots of Kendo in Seattle and there just weren't any Dojos here. Once I discovered action shooting (IDPA and USPSA) I knew that's what I wanted to do.

How Andre got into the shooting sports

I've been shooting guns since I was 12; primarily hunting and trap. After seeing some action shooting on Shooting USA, I had to give it a try. I started off with IDPA with my Glock 19 and Kimber 1911, and ramped into full-on action shooting addiction immediately. View full profile...

How Krystal got into the shooting sports

I would tag along with my dad to the range as his "brass rat" when I was a little girl. I started shooting pistols around 9 or 10. And one day he asked me if I ever thought about competition- I had never heard of it! One little search on YouTube, and I knew I had to try it!

James Leffler

How James got into shooting sports

I started reading a bunch of zombie books, got curious about guns, and bought an AR. I got bored punching holes in paper at gun ranges and heard about the steel shoot in Hutchinson. That led to USPSA, which led to tactical shotgun and 3 Gun matches.

Mark Stevens

How Mark got into the shooting sports

In a nut shell. I fell into it. I bought a pistol to shoot with my cop brother. During the Carry class the instructor mentioned USPSA. I went to a match and within 6 months sold all my worldly possessions and started 3 Gun. View full profile...
