Zach Kienbaum honored with induction into the NSCA Hall of Fame

Team Winchester member Zach Kienbaum was recently inducted into the 2022 National Sporting Clay Association (NSCA) Hall of Fame, an honor bestowed only on the best competitors in shooting sports history. Zach has built a storied career as a world-class clay sport champion and instructor that spans more than 25 years.

Originally from California, Zach started shooting in 1990 with his father at a local club, River Road Sporting Clays. Under the tutelage of his late father, his innate natural talents and his work ethic, Zach has been one of the most prolific and consistent sports shooters in the world. Consistency, in fact, is what matters most to Zach. He has reached the podium at the National Sporting Clay Association (NSCA) Nationals for the past five years in a row, including two championships in 2018 and 2019.

“Zach is not just a sports shooter, he is also a world-class person. His lifelong commitment to sporting clays makes him extremely Hall of Fame deserving,” said Brett Flaugher, President of Winchester Ammunition. “Clearly, walking around a set, Zach’s impact goes far beyond his ability to shoot. He connects with people, is always willing to help and is an excellent ambassador for shooting sports and for the Winchester team.”

Zach joins Winchester team shooter Anthony Matarese in the NSCA Hall of Fame, who was inducted in 2014.
