Brownells Fall Fest Teaches Eloise Vogel Her True Strengths

Eloise Vogel had barely handled a rifle or shotgun until three weeks before AG & AG’s Brownells Multigun Fall Fest Match. But it turns out she is the mother of World Champion pro-shooter, Robert Vogel, and future mother-in-law of pro-shooter, Jessica Hook, who encouraged her to register. Eloise says, “The thing I learned the most about myself is that I can do more than I thought I could do. I’m stronger than I thought I ever was. I’m very proud of myself for stepping up to something major. If you would have told me a few years ago that I would be shooting an AR or a shotgun I would have told you that you were nuts,” she laughs. “I’m proud of experiencing something new that not a lot of people are able to do or choose to do.”
