Shawn McSparron had an early start at shooting thanks to his father and a classic Ruger 10/22. Like his younger brother Collin, this was all it took to hook Shawn on firearms and the shooting sports.
Shawn is one of the few junior shooters competing in F-Class Highpower shooting while continuing to expand his shooting skills, competing in both CMP and NRA AR Tactical Midrange division. When not working on his own shooting, he assists new shooters at his local shooting club and instructs on proper teardown and cleaning of AR and AK systems.
A high school senior in Palm Bay, FL, Shawn is a member of the Navy JTROC and has been a member of the Civil Air Patrol for six years. He plans to graduate high school this coming year and enlist in the U.S. Marine Corps.
