We collected thoughts and memories from a few of our ambassadors for Father’s Day. We encourage you to share your Father’s Day with us by tagging us on social media. #511tactical @511tactical
“My father is the epitome of teaching through example. From watching him I learned the value of hard work, seeing a task through completion and taking pride in what you could create with your own hands. He taught me to be adventurous, level-headed, to love reading and the outdoors, and to value personal integrity above anything else you could possess.” – Competitive Shooter, Corinne Mosher.
“My dad has done everything help and support me my entire life. When I first started shooting competition, it was extremely new to him and I. From the beginning all my dad wanted to do was help me be successful in the sport that I love. He inspires me to be the best I can be and to work hard. Thank you for everything dad, and Happy Father’s Day!! ” -Competitive Shooter, Sydney Rockwell
“My dad has certainly been the ‘MVP’ of influence in my shooting career. From the beginning, he has taught me safety, conservation, trigger control and how to teach others. He continues to this day to pass on these skills to others as he teaches concealed carry classes and Hunter Education classes. He’s my hero in more ways than one!” -Competitive Shooter, Dianna Muller.
“My father passed before his time when I was still fairly young. Jamy and I are fortunate enough to have Addie and Hayes that makes our family whole. We get to watch them grow, enjoy their bright personalities, and be part of those awesome growing moments in life. This weekend was filled with baseball, softball, and time at the pool. Carpe diem and Happy Fathers Day!!!” -Competitive Shooter, Lance Dingler.
“Being a dad to me means teaching my boys they can do anything they put there minds to, giving them the resources to discover things on their own and letting them make their own scars. I want my boys to jump in spite of the fear.” -Competitive Shooter, Jacob Betsworth.
“After watching my Dad and his friends shoot matches, I took an interest in shooting. If it wasn’t for my dad, I would have never got into shooting and got to meet so many new people, so I want to thank him for that!” -Competitive Shooter, Katie Francis.
“My mom asked me to think about how my dad has inspired me… she asked when I was going to work on reloading for a match we have coming up and I realized what my dad has taught me is to work. My dad’s always working, and I thank him for being that example to us and while it’s maybe not an inspirational theme, it’s reality. Thank you for teaching us to do what’s gotta be done Dad!” -Competitive Shooter, Tim Yackley
“My dad has been gone a lot for military duty and whenever he came home, he always made sure to spend time with us, even if there was work we needed to do. Shooting clays on the hill behind our house has been something we’ve done since we were little kids, and we still love doing it with him. ” -Competitive Shooter, Sean Yackley
“My dad’s inspired me to NOT have a job with a uniform because my mom jokes that his jobs all have costumes. He also reads to me, even when he’s been in his police car for 8 hours, he still comes home and reads books with me before bed.” -Competitive Shooter, Andrew Yackley
