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.
Mark's greatest victory in the shooting sports
I have had a few solid finishes locally and on the national stage but my single biggest victory is easily the number of people I have introduced to the sport through my youtube channel.
The skill that Mark still struggles with
There are so many! I have rough edges in all my disciplines. Right now I am working on athleticism and transitions between guns.
What Mark does when he isn't behind the trigger
I am a father and spend a lot of time with my 2 kids. My responsibilities to Hawkeye Ordnance and Hawkeye Syndicate eat up most of the rest of my time. I also have a wonderful lady friend and we spend a lot of time together at the gym or on various adventures.
