Alex Chichkov is coming off two World Championships titles and has his sights set on the 2016 Olympics in Rio

Fairfax, Virginia - The November issue of Shooting Sports USA, Barb Baird of Women's Outdoor News catches up with Alex Chichkov, World Champion pistol shooter and 2016 Olympics-hopeful, to ask the young marksman one question: What's in your shooting bag?

Not bad. Not bad at all when a 19-year-old competitive shooter can say he’s already won two World Championships at the recent 2014 World Shooting Championships in Granada, Spain, (Jr. Men’s Standard Pistol and Jr. Men’s Sports Pistol). Alex Chichkov, who emigrated from Bulgaria with his family when he was three, lives in Tampa Bay, FL, and hopes to represent the U.S. in the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
