Team Ruger's Beth Walker Takes High Lady Title at American Defense Multigun Shoot

Over the river and through the woods, to the High Lady win she goes!

Beth Walker is probably used to being a trailblazer by now. As the first junior competitor ever selected by the Team Ruger pro-shooting team in 2019, she was just 17 years old at the time .. .but she already had three three big wins under her belt. Now, competitive shooting's latest wunderkind has done it again by claiming the High Lady title at this year's American Defense Great Lakes Multigun event held at the Bass & Bucks range in Wabash, Indiana.

If you're not familiar with multigun events like the one Walker just locked down, they're more than just shooting matches. Like biathlon, they can be quite physically intense--and the American Defense Great Lakes Multigun event was no exception. The match required competitors to transition between a variety of steel and paper targets across seven natural terrain stages set in the woods, fields and ravines of the Bass & Bucks range, all while testing the competitors' skills with pistol, rifle and shotgun.

Naturally, a Ruger-sponsored pro shooter used Ruger firearms to capture her win! This young shooter triumphed using her Ruger AR-556 MPR rifle chambered in 5.56 NATO and her Ruger American Competition Pistol chamber in 9mm Luger. Walker finished with a final score of 356.5363 to capture her category win.

"The Great Lakes 3-Gun Championship was a match that challenged me physically and mentally through every stage," said Walker. "I am thankful for the reliability of my Ruger firearms that allowed me to be able to represent Indiana so well in the first major 3-Gun match that we have held."

Despite her tender years, Walker has already found her life's goal, supporting women in the shooting sports. As our friends at Shooting Sports USA reported last year, "Walker also dedicates herself to supporting women in the shooting sports. She is the Indiana Chairwoman of the emPOWERed organization, and also is the social media director for Expressions magazine. As such, she pens a monthly column for the magazine called 'Profiles of Second Amendment Women'.”
