About the Blog

Educating fellow Jews about the sporting and defensive use of firearms. Especially Jews in North America, too many of whom are instilled with the belief that guns aren't for nice Jewish boys and girls.

If you know of notable Jewish shooters that should be documented on the blog, even if it is only at the local club level, I am happy to report and profile them. And don't be shy if that person to be documented is you! Please drop me a line at jewishmarksman at gmail dot com. Also follow me on twitter @JMarksmanship.

Jewish Markswoman Hannah Black Makes US National Team!

Belated Mazal Tov to Hannah Black, who recently competed in qualifications for the National Team:
Shooting at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Black finished ahead of current OTC resident Amy Sowash and Olympian Amanda Furrer. The two-day event saw Black fire a 579, which was good enough to earn her a spot in the finals. She made her mark in on day two as she fired a national record 591 to propel her to the top of the podium. The score was one point off the World Record and topped her personal best by nine points. Her two-day score of 1,181 was two points better than Sowash's mark of 1,179. Her performance has earned her a spot on the squad that will compete at the World Cup in Changwon, Korea.
She was also featured in a recent Virginia news article, with a great quote
“That’s the nice thing about shooting,” she said. “You alone are responsible. You alone are accountable. What you accomplish is a reflection of how hard you’re willing to work and how much time you’re willing to put in. In a lot of respects, you’re always competing against yourself. Your goal for tomorrow is to be a little bit better than you were today.
