The purpose of the “Shooter Spotlight” is to help shooters get to know their fellow competitors a little bit better. We cover a wide range of shooters from “Marksman to Master.” This is the 70th interview in the series.
Where do you call home?
East Haddam, Ct
How long have you been shooting?
All my life
How did you get involved in shooting competitively?
I was drafted as the Norwich Free Academy Rifle Coach and shot to lean more about the sport.
What is a little known fact about yourself that your fellow competitors might not know?
I am an avid fan of Sherlock Holmes and am a charter member of my local Holmes society, The Winter Assizes at Norwich, and the national society, The Baker Street Irregulars
What do you consider your finest shooting achievement?
Shooting my first match at camp Perry, The Randle Doubles/Mentor Match and winning a place medal.
What is your favorite pre-match meal?
Pulled pork sandwich
What is your favorite post match drink?
The first cold beer that I come across
Do you have a favorite shooting range?
Yes, my home turf-the Quaker Hill Rod and gun Club both indoors and out. And, now that I have at last shot at Perry I like it a lot.
Do you have any short term and/or long term goals?
To keep improving
What shooting skills are currently focusing your energy on?
I shoot with a scope and am working at controlling my hold and trigger squeeze so that the crosshairs moved into the ten ring the same time my trigger finger convulses.
