Fiocchi would like to welcome a new sponsored shooter for Fiocchi of America: Patrick Flanigan. You might want to check out his bio and great videos!
Growing up near the forests and wetlands of Wisconsin instilled in him an appreciation for nature that he is now able to pass on to today’s youth in his chosen field as a professional shooter. Patrick’s love for the old west and westerns since a boy was the initial spark for his fascination with the stories of Buffalo Bill and his Wild West Show as well as other great exhibition shooters like Herb Parsons, Ad Topperwine, etc. It was while viewing old footage of these shooters that Patrick realized that he was not only capable of duplicating some of these routines, but that he had it in him to evolve the shooting sports to a whole new level and so, his fate was sealed.
He practiced constantly to perfect the shooting routines now used in his live performances.Patrick’s intense desire to see the shooting sports better recognized as a professional sport and his continuous efforts to educate, promote and evolve the shooting sports has made Patrick’s live & filmed shows some of the best outdoors entertainment today.Patrick is currently an eight-time world record holder in Xtreme Sport Shooting and at the very top of the exhibition shooting circuit. Patrick performs dozens of live Xtreme Sport Shooting shows a year and is also the star of numerous television programs such as “Hot Shots” on NBC Sports, “Impossible Shots” on the Outdoor Channel, and Patrick Flanigan’s own “Shell Shocked” on The Sportsman’s Channel. Patrick has also been featured in hundreds of publications including “Outdoor Life”, NRA’s “ In-Sights”, “Pheasants Forever”,” Ducks Unlimited”, and many, many more.
