Jessie Duff crossed a major milestone in the world of shooting sports. She is the first woman ever to claim a GM (Grand Master) rating. GM is the highest rating you can achieve in the sport of Practical Shooting from the United States Practical Shooting Association (www.uspsa.org). To earn this title, Jessie had to maintain an average above 95% – 95.39% to be exact, in shooting classification courses. This is not an easy thing to do and until this month, it had never been done before.
Her blog at www.jessieduff.net reads simply: Jessie Duff is recognized as one of the most accomplished competition shooters in the world. Competing – and excelling – in five different shooting disciplines, Jessie has won both world and national championship titles, included among them are the prestigious Bianchi Cup and the Steel Challenge World Speed Shooting Championships. Over the last couple years Jessie has been a fixture in the shooting sports industry representing her many sponsors, chief among them Taurus.
In addition to her numerous duties for the Taurus Shooting Team, Jessie, along with husband Matt, co-hosts the popular Friends of NRA television show on the Outdoor Channel, where the the couple help promote the fun and excitement of the shooting sports to legions of new shooters.
Now she can add one more very big accomplishment to her list. Well done Jessie. I am proud to know you and happy that I was able to help get you started way back when… We are all very proud of you here in Georgia!
