In our final segment of this series, Dave Re, a United States Practical Shooting Association grand master, leads Dave Castro through the final challenges at the Austin Rifle Club’s practical shooting course.
In Part 1, Re introduced Castro to the sport of practical shooting as they began the course. In Part 2, they continued through the course as the obstacles challenged not only their shooting skills but also their speed, mobility and agility. In Part 3, the pair finish the course and come face to face with the toughest challenges yet.
CrossFit has helped many athletes achieve success in their sport, and Re explains that his performance has improved since he started CrossFit.
“I’ve gotten a lot stronger. My sprint times have come down quite a bit, and I’m actually pretty darn fast on my feet now relative to what I was before,” Re says.
