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.

Steve Roman & Artie Goodman Trapshooting Champions and Jewish Marksmen

Found a great article in the New Jersey Jewish News about Jewish Marksman Steve Roman:

 ... Most recently, at the Northern NJ Zone State Trap Shooting Championship in May, he took first place in the A-class doubles and veteran (over 65) singles categories.
 His record of success has even caused Roman to be a bit jaded. “I’ve got a closet full of trophies,” he said. “When I first started out, that meant something. I’ve won state championships, local championships, regional championships…. Maybe at 66 my perspective has changed.

Roman also introduces us in passing to another Jewish Marksman at his club, Artie Goodman:

Roman also said, “You’d be surprised at the number of Jewish shooters.” He pointed out a few men on the range and identified them as such, calling over one elderly gentleman, 80-year-old Artie Goodman, a West Orange resident. Roman calls Goodman “the oldest living Jew shooting.” He took up shotguns when tennis elbow prevented him from shooting target pistols.

Mazal tov to Roman and Artie!
