Competitive shooter Jessie Duff kicked off the first day of the 143rd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits by greeting fans, signing autographs and answering shooters' questions at the Hoppe's and Uncle Mike's section of the Bushnell booth.
"I love being here with NRA people," she said. "They're like my family."
Duff competes in five shooting disciplines as a member of the Hoppe's and Uncle Mike's team, and in 2013 she was the first woman ever to earn the title of Grand Master, the highest ranking awarded by the United States Practical Shooting Association. With that kind of range time, Duff is no stranger to the unmistakeable scent of Hoppe's No. 9.
"[It] goes back to my first memory of shooting," she said. "I've used Hoppe's products throughout my shooting career."
"Above all, be safe," she said. "That means becoming educated about the firearms you shoot. And have fun."
Duff will again appear at the Hoppe's and Uncle Mike's display Saturday, April 26, at 11 a.m. and Sunday, April 27, at 11:30 a.m.
