During a Day of the Cowboy shooting exhibition July 26 with her father Greg in Uptown, a camera was again following 16-year-old Jessica Kirkham.

Jessica Kirkham, right, reloads a double-barreled shotgun in a shooting exhibition with her father, Greg, July 26 at the Day of the Cowboy in Uptown. Kirkham is the fastest Cowboy Action Shooter in the world after taking the title at the world championships in Albuquerque.
Unfortunately for the photographer, it couldn’t follow her fast enough. Using a pistol and double-barreled shotgun, Kirkham blew away balloons and a whole row of cans without ever getting her quick draw captured on still film.

That is how fast the overall women’s world champion can shoot competitively, as shooting media have resorted to video cameras to ensure they capture every movement of the Sedona Red Rock High School junior, who became in July the world’s fastest-shooting woman and fourth-fastest overall Cowboy Action Shooter in the 50,000-member Single Action Shooting Society.

For the full story, please see the Friday, Aug. 8, issue of the Sedona Red Rock News.
