The second Cimarron and Pietta Young Guns program was another huge success!
USA – -(Ammoland.com)- The 2nd “class” of Cimarron and Pietta Young Guns are:
- Jessica Weekly, aka Little Red Sure Shot, 16, Wabash, Indiana;
- Robert Manney, aka Dead on Bob, 15, Olympia, Washington;
- Colton Riley, aka Copperbottom Colt, 15, James Creek, Pennsylvania;
- Katherine Alexandria Banda-Segura, aka Little Bullseye, 15, Fentress, Texas;
- Lee Fricke, aka Skeeter Lee, 16, Lima, Ohio;
- Noah Fricke, aka Chocataw Kid, 14, Lima, Ohio.
They joined a previous class of 6 Young Guns who immediately offered mentorship and camaraderie.
The Young Guns program was created as a platform to inspire young SASS shooters to stay committed to the sport. We do not look for top shooters; instead we looked for well-rounded individuals with drive and heart.
Said Chocataw Kid, “With my new guns from Cimarron I got 1st place Buckaroo at Indiana State and won Buckaroo speed pistol, speed rifle, and 22 combo. Before I got the pistols at Ohio State I won 1st place Buckaroo and Best Dressed Buckaroo. At Guns of August I won 1st place Buckaroo and Best Dressed Young Gun Boy. I have also gotten 1st place Buckaroo at several different clubs in Ohio and Indiana.”
“Being a Cimarron Young gun has been a big motivator for me, it feels good and pushes me to improve myself knowing that the people at Cimarron see something in me. It’s a great program that I know will give many more young shooters confidence and a great start to their shooting career. It has been a great experience for me. I have met lots of new shooters who have helped me in many ways. I love my new set of Pietta Thunderstorm pistols; they are great guns with smooth actions. They were exceptional right out of the box, and are my favorite out of any revolvers I have shot. Thank you Cimarron for making this possible and choosing me as one of your 2015 Young Guns, I take pride in being associated with the Cimarron name” said Jessica Weekly.
