Jessica Bessler is a 3 Gun shooter based out of Oregon. Starting her career in November of 2017, she dove head first into training. With less than 2 years of competition experience, the dedication and drive she has to become a better, well-rounded shooter is astonishing. From last place finishes early in her career to top 25% overall at majors has been a huge improvement and great to watch. Being meticulous about shot placement, transitions, footing and her overall stage plans allow her to attack each stage and perform well. She is constantly learning, practicing and working with other shooters to improve herself and the 2a community around her. We are proud to have her on the team and cannot wait to watch her grow even more as a shooter

John knows personally and insists that if you are a veteran and missing that team unity, camaraderie and great times with like-minded buddies, go check out the shooting sports in your area. Find a range that holds competitions near you and talk with the shooters there. “See what you might be missing because we are a great group who would love to assist new shooters with answers and knowledge.” “We all started there at some point, odds are it was an experienced shooter who got us started.”
