I first became interested in competition shooting when I saw 3-gun on TV like many others. I started shooting individual gun (pistol, rifle, shotgun) matches in 2012 in the Corpus Christi area. After getting comfortable with each discipline I tried 3-gun for the first time and was immediately hooked. I started going to multiple club matches every month trying to improve my game. After taking a break in 2014 to save up for my first house, I dove in full bore in 2015 and shot my first major match at the Texas 3-gun Championship where I placed 60th in tac-ops and 86th overall. Since then I have shot at least 6 major matches every year continuing to place higher at each match as well as some individual discipline majors. In 2016 I had my first major match win at the South Texas Tactical Carbine Championship in Edinburg, TX.
I have been training very hard in the last couple of years to grow in shooting sports and 2017 has been my best season so far with no lower than top 16 finishes in several majors and the latest finish of 2nd at the Babes With Bullets 3-gun Challenge in the men’s tac-ops division. I hope to continue to excel in 3-gun and expand my major match schedule to include more individual weapon majors in the future.
I have been blessed to have the guidance and support of Triangle Shooting Sports, Barnes Precision Machine, ORR Tactical Ammunition and Ping Time Targets.
Brandon, born a small boy in a suburban Texas town… Wait wrong story. (This was his idea.)
Brandon has always been a gun guy. He does as much of his own gunsmithing as possible including building all of his AR patterned rifles from 80% lowers, and milling his shotgun loading port. He started competitively shooting 3-Gun in 2015 and loved the speed. Brandon enjoys the mental challenge of stage planning but excels most at high speed rifle hoser stages. Well, that and cracking jokes.
If you squad with Brandon and don’t have fun, you’re doing something wrong.
Growing up on a farm in a small town, Scott Reeh has been shooting and fishing since he was a small boy. His love of the outdoors drove him to become a fishing guide and has been for many years along the Texas Gulf Coast. Scott started competing in local IDPA matches in 2011. His natural ability to shoot and competitive nature drove him to further compete in USPSA, Outlaw 3 Gun, and individual training in Combat Focused Shooting. He quickly climbed as a competitive level shooter and travels around the State to compete at various levels of matches.
Scott has become a sponsored shooter for Orr
Tactical Custom Ammunition on Team OSB as well as joining Texas based target manufacturer Ping

Ashley West-Sullivan started competitive shooting in 2010 at her local range, Pearland Shooting Club. In 2014, she decided to take her shooting to a new level by accepting an invitation to shoot at The International Defensive Pistol Association Nationals with the A Girl and A Gun squad. Shooting that match fully-implanted the competitions shooting “bug” into her! Since 2014 she has shot six top-tier IDPA matches, three sanctioned USPSA matches, and began training with her mentor, Jim Duncan, a USPSA A-Class shooter with over 25 years competitive shooting experience.
In 2016, Ashley created her shooter page, Ashley - Shoot Them All, to help advertise the shooting matches in the south Texas area in hopes to attract more people into the realm of shooting sports. Her page is used to promote all of the sports – IDPA, USPSA, Steel Challenge, PASS, and outlaw matches.
