About Us

ShootingBUZZ™ is the brainchild of Kevin Mitchell, a lifelong target shooter. Long frustrated with the lack of easy access to shooting information such as competition dates and locations as well as match results, he decided to create an application for all levels of shooters – from juniors to coaches, who could use ShootingBUZZ™ as a way to promote and stay connected to the shooting community, both near and far.

Why I created ShootingBUZZ™

Wanted a Community site that was focused exclusively on the target shooting community.
While Facebook could offer an alternative for some of the social aspects, it did not offer all of the features I wanted for myself and other shooters.

Wanted an easier way to find matches to shoot and follow scores at matches:.
There are several websites and publications that list different types of competitive matches. However checking all the different locations is a pain. I also wanted a fun place where people who were attending the match could share their experiences, scores, and pictures. There is a lot that goes on between the first shot and the Finals awards. With ShootingBUZZ™, we all can share results and pictures the day of the match.

Looking for a fun way to stay in contact with my friends who shoot besides email.
Having the ability message other members and receiving notifications helps stay connected, and for those times when a friend is also logged in you can Instant Message. .

About Kevin

Kevin began his love of target shooting while competing in small-bore rifle as a junior with the Police Athletic League (PAL )in New Jersey while in high school. Committed to continuing in the sport, he accepted a varsity rifle scholarship to Eastern Kentucky University (EKU). At that time, EKU constantly ranked nationally in the top 10. While there, Kevin served as Captain in his junior year and set several EKU and Conference records. A lifetime NRA member, he is also one of the early USA Shooting members.

Graduating from EKU with a BS in Industrial Arts and a Masters in Industrial Technology/CAD/CAM, Kevin was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army where he served in the Kentucky and Washington National Guard for 7 years, reaching Captain prior to moving to the Ready Reserve.

Kevin spent the next 20+ years in software development, leading companies that he founded or co-founded. Between the busyness of raising a family and work, shooting would come in and out of his life.

Always interested in technology, Kevin worked on mobile apps in his spare time for fun. After experimenting with several platforms, he realized that the best one to concentrate on would be something that he would want to use himself as a shooter. Aka ShootingBUZZ™

ShootingBUZZ™ has been designed to work with all popular desktop and iOS and Android mobile browsers. Depending on demand I will bring a mobile APP version for iOS and Android devices.
