2020 VTHOF Inductee – Danny Sirk
The Virginia Trapshooting Hall of Fame is happy to announce the inductee, whom was selected by the current VTHOF members, Danny Sirk!
Danny began shooting register trap targets in 1997. Since that beginning, he has fired more than 100,000 registered targets across the three disciplines and has destroyed the majority of them. Danny’s consistency has been and continues to be remarkable as he has been on a member of the state team every year since 2005. He shows no signs of slowing down any time soon as he ended the 2019 shooting year with a 97.45 singles average, 90.36 handicap average, and a 91.25 doubles average.
Through the years, Danny has won numerous trophies at the state level both in Virginia and across several other states. Some of his most notable awards include the 2014 Virginia State Handicap Champion, 2018 Virginia State Doubles Champion (100×100), 2016 Virginia State Veteran Handicap Champion, 2007 Pennsylvania 6th place Open Handicap, and 2015 Maryland State Open Doubles Champion. To cap off all of these awards, in 2015 Danny earned his way onto the Amateur Trapshooting Association All American Veteran Team. In 2009, he reached the 27 yard line for the first time, and he has returned to the back fence 2 more times since.
On top of his tremendous shooting abilities, Danny currently belongs to three trapshooting clubs in Virginia: Fairfax Rod and Gun, Arlington-Fairfax Izaak Walton, and the Winchester Gun Club. He has served as the President of Fairfax Rod and Gun where he helped with the Eastern Regional College Trap & Skeet shoot, which was brought Virginia. Along with this, Danny has helped run many Wounded Warrior shoots. For 8 years, Danny also served as a gun club representative to the VTA and has been a long-time supporter of the Virginia Trapshooting Hall of Fame in its mission to support youth trapshooting in Virginia.
