Biography

Bud Fisher enlisted in the Marines in 1911 and was awarded the distinguished marksman badge in 1916. He went on to become the greatest rifle shot in Marine Corps history. In addition to his Olympic successes, Fisher was a holder of five internationally recognized world records and was a six-time world champion. He won many national open and national military championships before his competitive retirement in 1934. After that time he coached the Marine shooters and spent time in Toledo, Ohio, training the police department there as shooters. Fisher retired as a gunnery sergeant in 1941 but was recalled to active duty as a shooting instructor during World War II.
