My first experience with a shotgun was with my Dad and Papaw; they took me with them at the age of 10 quail hunting. I will never forget the first time those birds came out from under my feet. What a rush. From there it was upland hunting till 1993 when I was introduced to the sport of clay target shooting.
Shortly after I joined the NSCA and became a tournament shooter winning my class in the first KY State Championship I competed in. I am currently a 5 time KY State Champion.

My wife Tina is the one that keeps me going and it’s a pleasure to travel and shoot with her. She coaches me and I coach her, were a team
I currently run Rangers Gun Club with my Family, a small gun club located in Calhoun KY.
I’m a sporting clays instructor and teach many disciplines and methods.
I care about the sport, always looking for ways to help the shooters and make the game better. Currently a member of the NSCA Advisory Council always willing to help the shooters get their concerns to the right people.
All and all I just love shooting and the people in the sport. The smell of gun powder and the sight of clay targets crushed in the sky by RIO AMMO.

Joe Charnigo
Joseph started shooting when he was 7 years old in his backyard with his dad and friends. They would shoot targets off a hand thrower and Joseph would stand there with his sling shot and a bucket of rocks trying to hit the clays before they would with the shotguns. Eventually this actually happened! At first they didn’t believe it, but as it happened more often they realized he was actually hitting the targets and his Dad decided it was time to put a shotgun in his hands. As soon as Joseph broke his first single bird with a shotgun he immediately wanted to shoot DOUBLES! This is more than likely where his love for doubles trap began. He started shooting ATA registered trap in 1998 when he was 11 years old.

In 2002 he started taking it quite a bit more serious traveling around the country to major shoots. Since then he has won many events including Champion of the Ohio State Double Champion Ship 6 times and his biggest career win was Champion of the Grand American Doubles Championship in 2015. He has been on the All American Trapshooting team 9 times.

Joseph has shot for Blaser USA since 2010 and Rio Ammo since 2013. Shooting and hunting are his passion, when he is not shooting he is working at Air Control Products as a Salesman for HVAC Equipment, Hunting with friends, working on his farm, or racing his diesel pickup.
