Two years ago, NRA Family Field Editor Barbara Baird came to us with an idea for the next installment of our "Rising Shooting Stars" series: a young competitor by the name of Maggie Reese. Reese, we learned, hadn't even known that there was such a career as a professional competition shooter until she was already several rungs up the ladder (and continuing to rise)! Now, Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. just signed Maggie Reese Voigt to its professional shooting team. Maggie takes the sixth spot on Team Ruger, led by Captain Doug Koenig. In addition to serving as a competitive shooter for Ruger, Maggie will also represent the Company as an official Brand Ambassador.

“We are honored to welcome Maggie to Team Ruger,” said Doug Koenig. “Adding a Multi-National Champion to the team certainly raises the bar for us. Her experience is a great asset to our team and we are excited to see her compete in Ruger Red.”
Maggie’s current National and World shooting titles include:

2016 US-IPSC Handgun Champion

4-Time National Champion USPSA Multi-Gun

3-Time National Team Member IPSC World Shoot (Rifle & Handgun)

Multi-Time Ladies Champion at Superstition Mountain Mystery 3-Gun, MGM Ironman, Surefire World Championship, Safariland Expedition UML Championship, and Rocky Mountain 3-Gun

Maggie has also appeared on television series Top Shot, Shooting USA and Modern Shooter.

“When Ruger approached me about joining the team, I just had to say yes,” said Maggie. “I have long-admired Doug’s shooting career and have seen first-hand how well Ruger firearms perform at the highest level of competition. I am very excited for the season ahead and proud to be representing a company that has a passion for developing and producing quality firearms.”

Maggie made her national debut as a member of Team Ruger with a High Lady win in the PCC Division at the Safariland Mike Voigt Memorial UPL Match and Safariland Expedition UML Championship hosted in Las Vegas, NV on March 15-17. Future matches for Maggie include the NRA Bianchi Cup; Steel Challenge, USPSA, and Multi-Gun competitions; as well as a number of other state and national competitions throughout the year.

Congratulations, Maggie!
