Jack Gilmour hails from Nanaimo, BC. Jack became interested in shooting as a young boy when his
neighbor invited him to shoot tin cans in an empty field. After failing to hit even
one can he vowed to learn the sport and become the best shot in Nanaimo. He practiced shooting sugar
cubes out of the air. Eventually, he hit almost everything he aimed his rifle at.
