Shooting since the she was 11, this quick study won the Women’s 50m Rifle 3-Position Junior Olympic National Championship at the age of 14 and never looked back. Recruited by the University of Kentucky for its prestigious college shooting team, Holsopple also has earned All-SEC Academic Honors. In 2013, she won the silver medal in 3-Position at the National Championships.

Also a high school volleyball player, Holsopple said, “I absolutely love sports and competing. To me there is no greater feeling than dedicating yourself to a dream and making it a reality.” She shoots an Anschütz 1907 in .22 cal. with Eley ammo, and a Feinwerkbau 800 air rifle in .177 cal., both packed in a Storm travel case. “I have used my Storm case for hundreds of flights and it has always kept my guns safe,” she noted. “I use a Nike bag for my gear because I’m sponsored by Nike, so they provide us with bags for travel.”

And here’s what she carries in that Nike bag.

• Standard shooting clothes such as shooting boots (Kusterman), pants and jacket (Kurt Thune), shooting glove (Monard) and Spandex undergarments (Nike).
•Three sets of Anschütz iron sights (one for each position).
•Shooting stand, kneeling roll, prone mat and sling.
•Cleaning supplies, because I clean my gun every few hundred shots or before every competition.
