The Pro Am Experience 

Shooting USA - The Pro Am Experience
We're sighting in on what it's like to shoot the Pro Am as a first timer and dealing with the heat and the par times. John, Mike and Greg choose their gear and face the targets.



It’s our effort to help grow participation in the shooting sports.  And a lot of you tell us you like what we’re doing, sending our guys out, not only to cover a major championship match, but then to participate in the match as first time competitors.  That’s what happened at this year’s Pro Am. 





Knowing they would be shooting at the event, the guys got so excited about it that Greg and Mike even called in a couple of favors to try their luck and their skill in the Open Division. John Shot in the Limited Division.






So with the guys outfitted with what they each think will be a winning combination; John, Mike and Greg are ready to brave the Tulsa summer heat and challenge the Pro Am steel plates.
