An upbringing on a farm in rural Arkansas set Grant Kunkel on a path of hunting and fishing with his dad. At 15 years old, his shooting interests expanded when he found online videos of competitive shooting. A few months later, he went to the Arkansas State NSSF rimfire match and never looked back. He now regularly competes in Steel Challenge and USPSA and has tallied a long list of titles, including 2019 Junior World Speed Shooting Champion, Mississippi State Steel Champion, Missouri State Steel Champion and 2020 Georgia State Steel Champion. “The adrenaline and challenge of pushing myself in speed and accuracy make me work harder every day to be the best I can,” Grant says.
