And Can She Shoot
Initially, I was going to title this column, “A Modern Annie Oakley.” But that doesn’t really fit because Annie was a trick shot. The lady I’m writing about isn’t that; instead she’s a darn good competitor, leaving lots of long-experienced men in the BPCR Silhouette game in her figurative dust.
Her name is Jen Griffis of Anaconda, Mont., a mother of two, a pediatric psychological therapist and in 2011 the setter of five BPCR Silhouette national records in the scoped category. And get this: she only fired her first silhouette match in March of 2011. That said, it is true Jen did have a good instructor. Her brother-in-law Mark Griffis of Belgrade, Mont., has been in the shooting game for several years, and won the 2011 Montana State Championship for iron-sight BPCR Silhouette.
Jen is quite noticeable on the silhouette line with her long blonde hair, but where she gained her first true fame was in beating one of Montana’s top shooters for the title of 2011 Montana Regional Champion for scoped BPCR Silhouette. That was Ted Tompkins of Big Arm, Mont., who holds several state and regional champion titles won in both Montana and Arizona.
