Last month's issue of Shooting Sports USA saw Barb Baird of Women's Outdoor News sit down with Glenn Ellis, Olympic gold medalist and one of the finest shotgun shooters around. As always, Barb only had one question: What's in your range bag?

A two-time Olympian before joining the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, Staff Sgt. Glenn Eller credits the Army for honing his training regimen in Men’s Double Trap, allowing him to claim the gold medal in the sport at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. At these Games, Eller set an Olympic and Final Olympic record. He has represented the U.S. four times on Olympic teams and is in training for Rio 2016.
