Zach Kienbaum Honored With NSCA Hall of Fame Induction

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

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

“Zach isn’t just a sport shooter — he is also a world-class person. His lifetime commitment to sporting clays makes him extremely deserving of the Hall of Fame,” said Brett Flaugher, president of Winchester Ammunition. “It is evident when walking around a shoot that Zach’s impact goes far beyond his shooting ability. He connects with people, is always willing to help, and is a terrific ambassador for the shooting sports and Team Winchester.”

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