Still a teen, Annabelle Ayres has already made a name for herself in competition shotgun events. Annabelle, or “Tiger”, as she is sometimes known, specializes in sporting clays and skeet, using her trusty Beretta 391 shotgun. Originally from Louisiana, our team Tiger now calls Lake Ann, Michigan, home. She began shooting with her father when she was about 7, and further developed her skills training with Dan Carlisle.
Annabelle’s most coveted achievement is admirable – just knowing how to properly handle shotgun. She is a shining example to other young people that shooting is not only enjoyable and exciting, but requires a constant awareness of safety. She hopes that those attributes will lead to a berth on Team USA.
Like most of her peers, Annabelle enjoys both family and teenage pursuits, as she puts it: shootin’, huntin’, fishin’, and textin’. We are so proud to have such an accomplished and down-to-earth young lady on Team Beretta.
