Frank Melloni

Top Shot, Frank

Age: 29
Hometown: Middle Island, NY
Occupation: High School Custodian / Firearms Instructor

Don’t underestimate Frank Melloni because he’s a self-taught shooter. This Long Island high school custodian has been training to compete all his life. His parents bought Frank his first gun when he was younger, and this new hobby quickly became a passion. Frank now shoots weekly at his local range, where he hand reloads his own ammo with amazing precision. He also collects World War II firearms. When it comes to winning, Frank thinks being a self-taught shooter will be an advantage in the competition. “It’s gonna make me the sleeper in the house,” he says. “Most people aren’t gonna see this coming. They’re gonna get driven home by a custodian. They’re not gonna see that coming at all.”
