The Bartholow Brothers. Matt and Foster.


Another fantastic year for Matt and Foster at the Grand.

Matt Bartholow (left), Foster Bartholow (right) -- 2018 GRAND AMERICAN. The Bartholow Brothers have been at the Grand doing their thing. And once again, neither Matt nor Foster Bartholow let many targets hit the ground. #citori #shotgun #sundaygunday #grandamerican #trapshooting  


The Bartholow Brothers achieved another year of excellence with their production Browning trap guns. As Foster puts it, "if you were getting into trapshooting, and the number 2 and number 3 shooters were shooting a Browning, wouldn't you want to look at a Browning too? Our success proves why Browning is The Best There Is"


Matt takes 2nd and Foster 3rd in the White Flyer 2600 Target High-Over-All. That’s all registered targets thrown in the preliminary week and championship week of the Grand combined.

Matt Bartholow.

Foster Bartholow.

"Both of us are convinced that Browning makes the best shotguns in the world! Shooting shotguns is our life and our passion. Shooting Browning shotguns keeps us focused on always staying at the top of our game and never giving up."


The Bartholow Brothers have a few big things in common, in addition to being brothers. The biggest thing is their continued acheivements in the clay target sports. Consistency is what they are known for -- which is evidenced by the hundreds of trophies won by each over the past decade of shooting. Some of their most notable acomplishments have been at the annual Grand American trap shoot. The bottom line, no Browning sponsored trapshooters have acheived more in the history of Browning. 

One of the places the Bartholow Brothers have made history more than a few times.

The Grand, at Sparta.
