In addition, Michael Tagliapietra, a 2016 Rio Paralympian, along with Chance Cover, a USA Shooting Rifle Developmental Team athlete, will be representing USA Shooting at the booth.

All of the aforementioned athletes excelled in their shooting careers with the support of USA Shooting, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that receives no government funding.
