98: Shotgun World Champion Shoots 3-Gun in America with Kim Leppanen

Kim Leppanen, IPSC World Champion Shotgun shooter and designer of King Competition Products shotshell caddies had a dream: travel to the United States and shoot 3-Gun matches along side the heroes that he watches on YouTube. Well he made it happen and he’s cleaning up in matches with top ten finishes in multiple matches including the famed Blue Ridge Mountain 3-Gun.

Kim is a super dedicated person which makes sense when you find out that he’s an engineer. A couple of the interesting topics from this podcast include:

  • How to arrange your life to allow time for your passion of shooting
  • What makes practical shooting in America unique
  • Gun ownership in Finland and why you should protect your rights
  • Plus! How to convince your girlfriend that you should take a three-month solo trip halfway around the world
  • And More!
