      Rachel Mazzio

      Rachel began shooting when she was about 6 years old, and has enjoyed it ever since. Rachel has always have been a competitive person, which led to her experimenting with a few indoor USPSA matches held at a local range during the winter. She did about 4 of these throughout the winters of 2016 and 2017 has never heard of 3-gun until they went into our local gun shop to purchase a shotgun, when they told us that it would compete the trio needed to begin multigun— a shotgun, rifle, and pistol. Intrigued, they did some research and found a local match. Rachel then competed in my first match on April 14th, 2018. From there, her addiction began. 

      Currently, Rachel has been shooting 3-gun for 4 years. Although 3-gun did have her missing many days of school, Rachel maintained above a 4.0 GPA all throughout high school as well as participating in a Mock Trial program, where they won the regional competition her senior year. 

      As Rachel is about to graduate high school, she plans to study online through a local community college to receive her associates degree of a liberal arts of science, and then go on to get her bachelors elsewhere with a major in mathematics and a minor in business— as well as continue shooting and giving back to a community that has given so much to her, and played such a large role in who she is today.
