Modern Shooter: Major-League Shooting With Lance McCullers


Houston Astros pitcher Lance McCullers brings the heat at the shooting range.

Lance McCullers can bring the heat – on and off the mound. The starter in the winner-take-all game seven, the Houston Astros’ right-hander was key in delivering his club’s historic first World Series Championship. Thing is, he’s as wicked and accurate away from the diamond.

Trading his wipeout curveball for a straight-shooting tactical rifle, McCullers is equally effective. And on the next episode of Modern shooter, he showcases his all-star shooting skills at Houston’s MAST Solutions. Joined by former teammate Jason Castro, the major leaguers dominate the demanding situational training course like a couple of tactical pros. Then again, these guys not only live and breath baseball, but America’s other favorite pastime – shooting.

In fact, trigger time runs in McCullers’ blood.

Reared on a ranch outside Tampa, Fla., if he wasn’t working on his pitching mechanics, he was honing his shooting skill’s to a razor’s edge. It shows, McCullers is as cool behind the business end of a rifle as he is when up in the count. Furthermore, the righty as view firearms and shooting as more than a mere diversion, but a way of life.
