NATHAN PAYNE

Nathan Payne has always had a passion for competition, and has competed in multiple sports and disciplines at many levels. Formerly a college football player, Nathan also spent some time competing in submission grappling and mixed martial arts before his foray into competitive shooting began in 2012. Under the tutelage of his father, Brian, Nathan’s first exposure to action shooting was local 3-gun matches put on by the MN 3-Gun Group. He quickly fell in love with the sport and decided to test himself at the national level by competing in major matches across the country.

While always a passionate competitor, Nathan’s true purpose is to facilitate the growth of the shooting sports. Along with assisting his father with instructing for Concealed Defense, he has also been an instructor for various courses put on by the MN 3-Gun Group since 2013. Nathan also has a career in law enforcement where he also serves as a firearms instructor.

While not on the range, Nathan is an avid hunter and outdoorsman. He also spends much of his free time with family and friends, many of whom you may actually see on the range as well.
