Carl Bernosky on His Introduction to Shooting

Competitive shooter Carl Bernosky was asked: How were you introduced to shooting?

“Fortunately, I grew up in a family that was outdoor- and shooting-oriented. My father shot in indoor small bore rifle leagues, and during the summer months he competed in High Power Rifle leagues. As a very young boy, it was natural for me to accompany my father to the range to watch him not only practice but compete. So when I was older, I began to shoot alongside him and I was immediately hooked.”

Carl Bernosky has been a precision marksman competitor for more than 48 years and has been named by the NRA as one of the “100 Greatest Shooters of the 20th Century.”
