John Harris has been an avid hunter his entire life and a 12 year military veteran. He has been plinking/target shooting and hunting since he was 8 but was only introduced to competitive shooting in 2010. It began with a local IDPA match with some friends and only a few short months later evolved to USPSA. Less than a year later in April of 2011, again through the encouragement of friends, John found myself at the Blueridge Mountain 3 Gun match with the intentions of shooting one major 3 Gun in that year. He ended up attending three majors that year and was completely hooked! As well as shooting, John has been focused on giving back to the sport and the many new friends he has made. He has been an RO for 3 of the JP Rifles Mammoth Sniper Challenge matches; RO for the 2013 & 2014 Task Force Dagger 3 Gun matches, certified as a USPSA RO and the assistance RM for the 2014 Pro-Am 3Gun.
John is extremely fortunate that his wife also began competitively shooting with him. It is a great way for a family to spend time together. Having very different shooting styles, John and Bethany share ideas, learn from each other and push each other to succeed. “We are extremely appreciative to have JP Rifles behind us and it’s humbling to be in the company of some of the other veteran JP shooters we’ve become friends with and been fortunate enough to shoot with. I can genuinely say that since I’ve been shooting a JP rifle, my scores have been going up, match after match. There’s a confidence I never before had with a rifle.”
