Occupation: Homeland Security Agent
Aside from his wife and three kids, Gary is proudest of becoming a Triple Nickel coin holder. The Triple Nickel Course of Fire is designed to measure a shooter’s ability to perform on demand by engaging five targets from five yards in five seconds. Fewer than 70 people in the world can boast that they’ve succeeded in this challenge. In Season 3 of Top Shot, he made it to the final three in the classic “Choose Your Weapon” challenge before being eliminated. Now a Homeland Security Agent, Gary served in the U.S. Army during Desert Storm and was part of the Special Ops Response Team for the Bureau of Prisons. He’s so competitive that he and his pals use target shoots to settle disputes. Gary was recently selected as one of Cleveland’s Most Interesting People in 2012.
