Meet Cheyenne Dalton; two-time Limited Lady Rimfire World Champion, Overall winner at the Wyoming State Games, and High Open Lady at the Alabama State Rimfire Match among many other titles. She’s come a long way since she first picked up a Ruger 10/22 at just six years old.

Cheyenne’s introduction to competitive shooting began at age 13. [Editor’s note: Read the SSUSA interview with Cheyenne Dalton here.] While her mom attended a concealed carry class the instructors daughter was there helping him. They struck up a conversation and the girl asked if she had any children that might be interested in shooting. Soon Cheyenne was invited to a local match and loved watching all of the action. She took two lessons from her, learned about grip and stance, and then entered her first competition in Iowa. Cheyenne won the High Limited Lady title and was hooked after that!

Cheyenne is one of the best lady 3-Gun and rimfire shooters in the nation right now.


When Cheyenne competes in rimfire she shoots the Volquartsen Ultralite Rifle, and the Volquartsen Scorpion. Both with Vortex Razor red dots. As for 3-Gun, it’s the CORE Hardcore X-1 rifle, with the lightweight woven carbon fiber handguards from Brigand Arms, an American Trigger Corp. Flat Trigger, the Vortex Razor HD 1-6 Scope, Dueck Defense offset sites, and JC Arms & Ammunition. Her pistol is an STI DVC 3-Gun, and a Benelli M2 modified by Taran Tactical Innovations for her shotgun.

To carry her handguns, Cheyenne uses the same zebra print range bag from Gun Goddess that her parent’s bought her when she first began shooting rimfire. In it she carries her eye protection, Harris and Sons FF-12 hearing protection and extra batteries for all of her scopes and red dots. She also keep wipes in the bag because ammo can be very dirty sometimes! It has plenty of space to hold everything and keep it organized.

Expect to see Cheyenne continue to excel in competition as an adult.


For those new to shooting, Cheyenne suggests learning the proper techniques from the beginning. Go to a match and ask as many questions as you can. And once you start shooting, never give up. Just make sure you have fun!
