Personal

From NRA Blog: The first time Sandra Uptagrafft shot a firearm was in Army Basic Training. “I found it challenging and quickly showed some skill. When I came home and started college in the early 1990s, a group of us wanted to join a rifle team, but our school didn't have one. We found a coach willing to teach us pistol and even provided equipment, so we started a team and began competing in collegiate matches.

Uptagrafft is in the Navy Reserves where she specializes in Information Technology. She is married to National Team rifle athlete Eric Uptagrafft.
