Shooting is a family passion of the Brown's as father (Dan), mother (Susan), brother (Wyatt) and Will all can be seen on the firing lines at USA Shooting matches across the country.  A tight-knit family, they also hunt and horseback together in the Sawtooth mountains near their Twin Falls home. 

As a kid, Will grew up shooting recreationally and hunting with his Dad. They would go shoot at the indoor club in town and there he met John Pitts, the International rifle coach from Kansas who convinced Will to try Air Rifle. Will jumped at the opportunity and started training and shooting PTOs in Blackfoot, Idaho at a club ran by Randy Shikashio. Randy got him to pick up an Air Pistol and it just kind of took off from there.
