About the Miculek Family The Miculek clan, consisting of patriarch and shooting legend Jerry Miculek, his wife Kay and daughter Lena are a family of competitive shooters. Jerry is considered to be one of the greatest shooters of all time, with 11 world records (including five NRA National Records), over 100 titles in numerous shooting disciplines. Lastly, he is one of only a handful of people to hold a Lifetime Achievement Award for shooting.
Wife Kay Miculek is the daughter of Jim Clark, Sr. founder of Clark Custom Guns, maker of the first 6" long slide 1911. She is one of the best shooters in the history of competitive shooting, man or woman. Additionally, Kay is the founder of Babes with Bullets, a program for new women shooters.
In 2005, Lena emerged on the pro competitive shooting scene, already an industry veteran with five consecutive Sportsman’s Team Challenge Sub-Junior and Junior Division national titles. After moving on to 3-Gun competition, she has become a force to be reckoned with in the sport. In 2015, Miculek won 25 of 28 matches—an extremely impressive 89 percent win rate.
