Hello, my name is Gabrielle Pitre. I am a 19-year-old Junior Long-Range, Mid-Range, Across the Course Match-Rifle, High-Power and NCAA Small-Bore shooter from Louisville, Kentucky. I have been shooting in competition since I was 8 years old. I started with shotgun and at the age of 13, I was picked up by the Alaska All-State Team to represent the Women’s division. In 2011, I switched to Small-Bore and became Distinguished in NRA 50ft 4-position Small-Bore. While shooting Small-Bore, I was introduced to Service-Rifle competition and from there; I entered Match Rifle/Palma Rifle competition. I have been shooting rifles competitively for four years now, and I have had the opportunity to shoot all over the country such as in Washington, Oregon, Wisconsin, Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Michigan, and Ohio. This upcoming year, I plan to travel and shoot in Kentucky, Ohio, Arizona, Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa, Tennessee, and New Mexico. I am a firing member on the Kentucky State High-Power Rifle Team, the U-25 USA Young Eagles Palma Team and The Akron Zips Club NCAA Rifle Team. Some of my accomplishments include:

Among my accomplishments, I have also had the opportunity to hold Leadership roles such as Team Captain of Long-Range and High-Power Teams numerous times for State, National, and International Teams.

Since I started my shooting career, I have looked up to and admired many great people in the shooting community. I have learned a great deal of traits in shooting these competitions. Traits like, sportsmanship, responsibility, respect, humility, pride and teamwork. I continually promote positive sportsmanship, enthusiasm, and go to as many Matches as I possibly can, at the Local, State, Regional, National and International levels. I have a very bubbly personality, and I am told I am a joy to be around. I feel being a positive team player who always has a smile on their face, is one of the most important things to help keep myself, and other people in good spirits. I plan on continuing my shooting well into the future, and I look forward to representing myself and the USA in International competition.

"Dear ESS, On deployment in 2012, my vehicle was struck with an IED while performing route clearance in Afghanistan. The IED flipped my vehicle, knocking me unconscious and launching my rifle into my face. My cheek, nose, and eye socket were shattered from the impact, but my eye was saved from the ESS Crossbow I was wearing. When I put a pair of Crossbows back on, you can clearly see where I would have lost my eye if I wasn't wearing them." SSG Pronzati
