SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. --( Jessie Duff, world renowned champion shooter, has set a new record in the world of shooting sports as the first woman to ever earn the title of Grand Master (GM).

The United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) designates GM as the highest rating a shooter can achieve.

In earning this prestigious classification Duff had to maintain an average above 95% in shooting classification courses, a proven challenge in the shooting sports. 2013 was a record-winning year for Duff, which included top wins in USPSA’s Open, Limited and Single Stack National Championships. Duff also took multiple top wins in the Steel Challenge World Championships and earned top titles in the Arkansas Sectional Championships and Steel Challenge National Championships.

”I am honored to have earned the designation of Grand Master with USPSA” said Duff. “This is something I have been working toward my entire shooting career and I’ve come this far thanks to a lot of hard work and a lot of support,” she added.

Duff is recognized as one of the most accomplished competition shooters in the world and is setting a new precedent for female shooters across the country. As female participation in shooting sports is on the rise, Duff’s most recent accomplishments and continued success are contributing to an increase in involvement of women in competitive shooting.

“Jessie is one of the best shooters in the world,” said USPSA Executive Director Kim Williams. “USPSA is proud to announce her historic record as the first woman to ever reach this ranking in Practical Shooting,” added Williams.

Duff is currently training and preparing for the 2014 season of USPSA shooting. You can learn more about her competitions by following USPSA on Facebook and Twitter or follow Jessie on her blog at  For more information or to join USPSA visit

    1. Dayum she’s a HOT shot.

    2. Looks can be deceiving.

      I’ve known a few beautiful women, but they had the personality of a mushroom.

      I have talked to her a few times and she has a very nice personality, No Nonsence and a bit edgy, but nice enough and approachable.
