3GN Shooter Profile
Ben has been shooting for the past 15 years and started shooting competitively in 2009. After shooting his first match, he was hooked on the challenge of balancing speed and accuracy. His first ever multi-gun was the Area 6 USPSA championship. He considers himself to be very fortunate to have traveled to some very cool matches across the country and to have shot with a bunch of great people.
