About Zach Kienbaum—Zach started shooting sporting clays competitively in California with his dad in 1990. He grew up shooting at his local club, River Road Sporting Clays, which hosted some of earliest sporting clay and FITASC competitions in America. He competed heavily throughout his junior years and into the Open class until 2001, winning countless accolades along the way. From 2002-2004, Zach worked in the vegetable industry in his hometown of Salinas, California, putting his shooting career on hold. In 2007, Zach moved to Southern California and began coaching and shooting full time at Triple B Clays Shotgun Sports Park. Triple B Clays, being one of the busiest gun clubs in the country, allowed Zach to learn to become a great “teacher” and hone his craft before starting to coach on a National scale.

In 2012, Zach moved to Houston, Texas, and began traveling extensively to competitions around the world. Zach has been shooting on an international level since 1995 and has accumulated countless championships as an individual and for the USA.
