Point Blank Range congratulates Simon Krauthamer on his 2018 victory in the Marine Corps Sporter 3P Air Rifle Championship!
Simon’s parents are Patriot Gun Club members in Matthews, and Simon himself worked as a gunsmith assistant when the Matthews location first opened. Currently a senior at Audry Kell High School in Charlotte, NC where he participates in the MCJROTC program, Simon has been shooting air rifle for four years. As team captain of the AKHS air rifle team, he holds the title of distinguished air rifle shooter and has earned his distinguished air rifle badge as well. Simon also holds two regional championship titles from Camp Perry, Ohio and Phoenix, AZ. Simon has been accepted into VMI where he plans to participate on their air rifle team.
We wish Simon the best of luck in his upcoming JROTC inter-service competitions and CMP civilian air rifle nationals coming up later this year!
