Brian Enos Interview

Home State: AZ


1. How long have you been shooting competitively?
I shot competitively for about 20 years.


2. What’s your favorite gun?
I don’t have a favorite. Whatever was best for the task at hand.


3. Do you prefer paper or steel?
I don’t have a preference, because each teach different skills. Paper teaches the most vital skill there is – what it means to call the shot. And when you miss and leave a steel plate, from that you know you haven’t learned to do that.


4. What is your best/proudest achievement to date?
Applying the attention skills I learned in shooting to my every day life.


5. What are you most looking forward to?
If I am looking forward I miss out on what’s happening now.


6: Which match was the most memorable and why?
Aftert I shot the final plate to win my first Bianchi Cup championship, for the first time I had the confidence to know I could do whatever I set my mind to.


7. Do you do the bullet flip on unload and show clear?
No, I’m boringly safe.


8. If you had the power to change only one rule, what would it be and why?
Get rid of steel targets that must fall to score. This isn’t 1980 – we have chronographs now.


9. Finish this phrase: “Action pistol shooting can…”
… because your score is divided by your time – the most challenging sport there is. Which provides a tremendous potential for learning.


10. Name five things you can’t live without
Water, food, my daughter, my girlfriend, and beer.


Who would you like to thank/mention? (family/sponsors/coaches/etc)
My dad. He was a tough, strong man. They don’t make ’em like that anymore.
