    spaceBryan Ray

    BR

    After competing in USPSA pistol matches for a few years, Kentucky native Bryan Ray discovered the sport of 3 Gun at the 2009 Blue Ridge Mountain 3 Gun at Rockcastle Shooting Center.  With the challenge of the stages, camaraderie of the shooters, and the great equipment of the game, this match was the catalyst for what has become a passion for the sport, both shooting matches and volunteering as a Range Officer.
    Qualifying for the 3 Gun Nation Pro Series in 2012, Bryan made a transition from the Heavy Metal division to Tac Optics, finishing the season ranked 30th and earning a spot at the 3 Gun Nation Rumble on the Range.
    Bryan is married, has two boys (ages 7 and 3) and works as a Project Manager/ Estimator for his family’s electrical contracting business in central Kentucky.
