Mark’s Interview Notes

Bona Fides: Mike Stoker started in practical shooting in early 2018. As a competitive athlete since childhood Mike quickly became addicted to competitive shooting and hasn’t looked back. He shot over 50 matches in his first year with many top finishes. Mike competes in both the USSL and USPSA in single stack and limited division. He plans to continue to excel as a competitor and attend as many major matches as possible in his second year. Mike enjoys helping others and growing together as competitors. When you see him at the next match introduce yourself!
