My name is Anette Wachter aka 30CalGal. I have been competing in High Power for about 8 years with a service rifle/AR15. I am an NRA Master class for Across The Course and an NRA High Master in Mid and Long Range. I only need 16 points toward my CMP Distinguished Badge. Four years ago I took up long range prone shooting and in that time was invited on to the U. S. Rifle Development Team. This year I became an official member of the US National Rifle Team. I am currently trying out for the 16 member 2015 Palma Team that competes in the World Championship which will be held at Camp Perry. I shoot with a .308 bolt action rifle with a 30″ barrel and with iron sights. Match distances are from 300 yards to 1000 yards. In 2011 I became the second woman and first American woman ever to win the B.C. Rifle Championship in 127 years. I have the NRA 300 yard Civilian National Record. This year of 2013 I traveled to S. Africa and competed with the US Team in their Nationals. USA took the Silver Medal for The America’s Match. I placed 2nd overall in the BC Rifle Championships and at Camp Perry US Nationals my team took home 3 National championships and possibly one national record at 1000 yards (Waiting for confirmation) and I placed 3rd in nation individually for The Doc Aiken Trophy at 1000 yards.

I live in Seattle, WA. Married to Charles Mohseni. We have a four legged and furry child. His name is Kozmo. I am a jewelry designer and gun blogger and write for several gun publications. I not only write my own blog but I write for GunUp Magazine, Shooting Sports USA, Sure Shots Magazine, Wide Open Spaces and part of the Gunup.com network.
In 2012 I started competing in the exciting sports of 3 Gun and
recently precision/tactical rifle. This blog started out as a diary of my adventures in shooting and competitions. Turns out people have been reading it! If you are one of those following my stories I thank you. I have been very fortunate to receive sponsors to further my career in this game. All of them are the best in their field. I hope you enjoy reading my blog.
