Since that time, he has won the Overall World and National Championship, accumulated 8 world & 10 national championships and over 30 State and Regional Championships. Evil Roy has also been inducted into the Single Action Shooter Society (SASS) Hall of Fame.

He has also designed and co-designed many products including Action Target’s Evil Roy Practice Target, Cimarron Evil Roy revolver, Eagle grips, holsters, shotgun belts and other products for Mernickel Leather and produced and sold the Evil Roy Training DVDs with Kyle Isenhart (Happy Jack). He is also very active in helping promote Vihta Vuori powders, Competition Electronics, and Redwing Knives.
