MAJ David Cloft of the USAR Service Rifle Team featured in the ALPENA News of Alpena, Michigan.
This story was reported by Chris Dobrowlski and in “The First Shot” (the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s on-line magazine.)
You can feel it from the moment David Cloft starts talking about shooting a rifle. It oozes out of him, as if it consumes him. It doesn’t matter if he’s describing the first time he went to a shooting range as a 10-year-old. Or the time when he became the first American in more than 600 years to win an annual Schutzenfest competition in Germany – an honor that got him knighted by Princess Elizabeth von Ysenburg. You could also include all the target practices, the competitions, or simply the feeling of squeezing a trigger and nailing a target that could be as far away as 1,000 yards.
