“Located in Ashland, WI, a small community along the shore of Lake Superior, Brian knew he could never compete with others when it comes to big events and total net dollars so 8 years ago he set the goal to be the best in the state when it came to net per attendee. He achieved this within 2 short years and then went for the same achievement in the entire Central Region and then the nation! Brain also runs community raffles year round at his business and at multiple trade and gun shows.

A true community leader and youth organizer, Brian was instrumental in starting High School and youth trap leagues, not only in his community but in a two county area. He hosts these and other community functions at his private range facility. He truly believes in passing down the shooting sports to the next generation.

Brian is a proud Marine, Father, business owner and all-around true achiever. He is also an accomplished competitive shooter, Brian has won two gold medals at the world Individual Long Range Rifle Championships, one of which was at the 2016 competition which was the first time the championships had been held on American soil for the first time since the early 1990s."
