Browning Pro-Staff, Sporting Clays Champion and More.
Rick is a true friend of Browning and an accomplished Browning Pro-Staff Shooter.
Rick is no longer shooting shotguns competitively, which is a loss to the entire sport. His enthusiasm and dedication for the clay target sports has always been infectious. And he is missed. Rick's newest endeavor is long range rifle shooting.
Through all this, Rick's solid reasons for using Browning guns and gear remain helpful to any shooting looking to purchase the best equipment.
"I have been shooting firearms and bows in some form or another since the age of five. I was encouraged by my Grandfather and my Father in hunting. I started clay target shooting at age 30. My best discipline? Shotgunning, of course."
"Why do I like Browning? I like Browning because of the quality of the organization. The products, services and individuals employed and associated with Browning are "The Best There Is."
Rick is a long-time Browning shooter with multiple sporting clays titles, nearly all won with Browning autoloading shotguns. A short list of his victories includes:
- Multiple National and Regional FITASC Championships,
- Nine-time New Mexico State Champion,
- Two-time HOA Arizona State Champion and two-time HOA Colorado State Champion.
- He is also an eight time NSCA All-American Team member.
Rick prefers to shoot the Browning Maxus® autoloader, but he will shoot just about any Browning, as shown in his appearance on Browning Expeditions TV.
