NRA Women congratulates pro shooter Lena Miculek on another winning streak. For the third year in a row, the incomparable Lena has been awarded a Gundie, this time for “Best Shooter.” In 2021 and 2022 she claimed the “Most Influential Female” category.

What’s a Gundie, you ask? The Gundies are annual community-voted awards that spotlight the world’s best firearm-centric content creators and influencers, with creatively named categories (see grid below).

If you need more proof that Lena is deserving of the “Best Shooter” title, check out her long list of accomplishments. Lena has more than 135 major wins and eight world titles in five different disciplines. She’s one of the top female 3-Gun competitors in the world, and is sponsored by CrossBreed Holsters, Mossberg, and shoots for Team SIG and Team Fiocchi. Lena took gold medal at the 2017 IPSC Rifle World Shoot in the Open division, Lady category, and three gold medals in the IPSC Shotgun Standard division, Lady category, from the 2012, 2015 and 2018 IPSC Shotgun World Shoot. And if her last name looks familiar, yes, she is indeed the daughter of “world’s fastest shooter” Jerry Miculek.
