Shooting Sports USA - November 2010 - 25

JE: How did you get started? MN: I started going to the range with my grandpa at 18 months. He’d put some hearing protection on me and I’d sit and watch. After that, I just always wanted to shoot. JE: Then what? MN: I got my first rifle, a smallbore, at age five, and I would shoot it off the bench. I started shooting competitively at 10 years old. JE: How many different silhouette shooting disciplines have you participated in? MN: I’ve shot air rifle, smallbore and high power. JE: Do you have a favorite? MN: I like smallbore silhouette the best because I can shoot it more often than anything else. JE: How long was it before you started to achieve some success? MN: I actually won high sub-junior and won B class at my second match. When we first started traveling to silhouette matches, I won B class at a large air rifle match with a borrowed rifle. JE: When did you start to get involved with high power silhouette? MN: I started shooting high power in October 2009. We went to Zwolle, LA, and I got high sub-junior and won the B class. [At this point, Mallory’s grandfather interjected that she was shooting a Remington 700 youth model in .243 cal. During the match, Mallory “rang” several rams (they were hit but did not fall) and Mallory said, “next time, we’re bringing a bigger rifle.” This resulted in a custom high power rifle being built for her.] JE: What’s the best part about shooting silhouette? MN: The people you meet when you travel. They become part of the family. They’re really friendly. I also like that silhouette is a constant learning experience. The more you shoot, the more you learn, and there are all different kinds of guns in the world.

JE: What was your absolute best moment in the sport? MN: Recently we went down to Denton, TX, to shoot. It was 106 degrees with a heat index of 112. We were slipping and sliding all over the guns. When I shot a 34, which officially qualified me for Master, that was the best moment. JE: What was the worst moment? MN: There have been a couple of horrible matches that didn’t go the way I wanted them to. I came pretty close to the bottom of my class, but I didn’t let that frustrate me because that can throw your whole game off. JE: What is your practice routine? MN: We practice every Thursday. We try to do confidence-building routines, like turning the chickens sideways at the regular distance or putting the chickens out at the ram distance to practice one-spot aiming. Sometimes, my grandpa and I have sudden death matches: one target, one shot, best of five. The idea is to build confidence in ourselves and in our equipment. Grandpa says we should favor quality over quantity when it comes to practice. JE: Anything else you want to tell people about silhouette? MN: If you really get into it, it’s a fun experience because you get to travel all over to do it and meet a lot of nice people.
