Nick Leghorn is a graduate of Penn State University currently working in San Antonio, Texas. He was born in New York City and grew up in the area, the son of a rather strict “anti-gun” family. He shot his first gun in the Boy Scouts and was instantly hooked on shooting sports. While attending Penn State, Nick started practicing Olympic smallbore rifle with the Penn State Rifle team. After only a few months of practice he was performing well enough to begin competing against other schools with the team. During his senior year he started branching out into different types of competitions, including USPSA handgun shooting (production division), NRA/CMP High Power Rifle (Service Rifle division), and eventually 3-gun (Tactical Optics division). He also founded and runs his own competition shooting team, consisting of dozens of members in multiple states and countries, who all compete and share tips and information together. Nick is a writer for The Truth About Guns, the most popular firearms blog in the United States, where he publishes regular articles about firearms, ammunition and related equipment. His main areas of interest in shooting are competition sports, long range accuracy, and scientific testing. He really enjoys using his knowledge of statistics and analytical abilities to solve questions and do interesting experiments with firearms. In his free time (what’s left after writing for TTAG, at least) he’s a volunteer firefighter and EMT with a local fire station and enjoys lockpicking.
