NRA Women congratulates pro shooter Jessie Harrison for her record 16th Ladies World Speed Shooting Championship title, which has set a record for the most titles of any female shooter in the sport. The event took place April 26-30 at the CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park in Talladega, Alabama.

Harrison’s win came just weeks after she claimed the High Lady title at the U.S. Steel Nationals, which took place March 17-19 in New Smyna Beach, Florida. At that event, Harrison also finished with an impressive fifth place overall. One of the most distinguished female handgunners on the competitive circuit, Harrison has now been the sole winner of the Ladies title since 2013.

“This sport never gets old or easy,” Harrison said on her Facebook page. “Each year brings its own set of unique challenges making each of my 16 titles unique and special. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to continue to do what I love and for all the people who have supported me unwaveringly throughout my career.”
