NRAWomen.com contributor Becky Yackley is a name perhaps new to some of our readers, but those who follow the competitive shooting circuit know she’s been a force to reckon with for many years, competing in more disciplines than almost any woman involved in the shooting sports: NRA Highpower, IPSC, USPSA, Bianchi Cup, 3 Gun and many more.
But what do you get when you multiple that ambition and success times five?
Answer: The Yackley 5. That’s right, five members of the same family— Becky, husband Mark, and sons Tim, Sean, Andrew, all members of Team Winchester—are making a name for themselves by competing at events around the globe, and also sharing their expertise through educational content.
In fact, the Yackleys are the largest family in the country actively competing in the shooting sports. Over the last decade Mark, Becky and their three sons Tim, Sean and Andrew have earned 97 top 5 finishes with 30 match wins, nine national records and six world shoot medals, including three gold, two silver and a bronze.
“The Yackley family is like no other when it comes to hard work, American values and a deep commitment to the shooting sports,” said Matt Campbell, vice president of sales and marketing for Winchester Ammunition. “We are proud that they train and compete with our ammunition, but even more importantly, they are strong ambassadors for our brand and their story is important to share.”
Now Winchester Ammunition has released the newest in its short film series, “The Yackley 5,” a high-end production featuring one of the most dynamic families in the shooting sports world.
“This film truly captures our lifestyle and commitment to the shooting sports. It’s an activity that is loaded with opportunities to build a tight-knit family,” said Becky Yackley. “We are honored to represent a legendary brand like Winchester.”
Jason Brown, co-founder and executive producer for Rusted Rooster, which produced the film, said, “The Yackley's are a perfect combination of hard work, exceptional family values and dedication to our country that made telling their story an absolute honor."
