Record winning shooter in Region 8

BROOKLAND, AR (KAIT) -- A Brookland native who has toured the world showcasing his skills with a handgun was back in Region eight this weekend as part of the wild game dinner held at the New Antioch Baptist Church.

Matt Mink is known for being the second fastest shooter in practical shooting in the world.  He helped the United States take first place in the World Championship in Bali, Indonesia.  Bringing his talents back home is also a major accomplishment.

Mink didn't start shooting until the mid 1990's, when he was told his talent could take him to the top.

Mink said he fired more than 600 times during the competition in Bali.
