What can we say about Team Glock? Hmmm, well, let’s start with this: they’re awesome! They’re young, enthusiastic women who love to shoot! Really, what more do you need to know about the ebullient Tori Nonaka and the intrepid Michelle Viscusi?
Joking aside, these ladies are great ambassadors for the king of the polymer pistol. It was nice to finally meet them at SHOT Show 2015.
Curious as how they got their start? Here are their bios, courtesy of the Glock Website:
Tori Nonaka was introduced to the shooting sports very early in her life. At the age of 3, Tori’s father, Aaron Nonaka, began bringing Tori to the range where he focused on firearms safety and the fundamentals of marksmanship. By age 12, a natural gift for shooting began to emerge, and Tori began her competitive shooting career. Showing tremendous insight and support, her father sought instruction for Tori from a long list of the best action shooters in the world.
Michelle Viscusi’s path to shooting sports has materialized a little differently than most competitors. She began her competitive shooting at the age of 21. Joining the Army National Guard at the age of 19, Viscusi soon learned from her military training that shooting came naturally to her. While in the military, Michelle had the opportunity to be on The History Channel’s hit series Top Shot. Competing with 17 other more experienced shooters, Viscusi realized that to make her dream a reality she would need to throw herself at her craft and start taking competitive shooting more seriously. Last year Viscusi committed herself to countless hours of training at the range to continue the legacy of champion women’s shooters for Team GLOCK.
