Hello everyone, I’m Jesper Hansen and I’m a Danish skeet shooter since 1994. I was born in Roskilde on 19th November 1980 and I’m a smith. I train at the Københavns flugtskytteklub shooting range with the Beretta DT11. My way of life is about staying and living young.





Jesper started shooting at 14 years and he never stopped. He entered in the international scene in 1999, when he participated at the European Championship junior in Poussan. In 2011 he took the bronze medal at the World Cup of Beijing.

What Does he bring on shooting Range?

The Shotgun


The DT11 is Beretta’s top-of-the-line competition shotgun, used by the world’s absolute best clay shooters. It is built around a vault-tough cross-bolt action, a whole 3mm wider than its predecessor’s (the DT10) and therefore stronger and even more durable. DT11 Trident Beretta.

Which is your favorite gun?
My favorite gun is the one that I’m using right now, the Beretta DT 11.

Why do you prefer to use that gun in particular?
 I prefer to use this particular gun because it gave me great satisfaction in a lot of disciplines; in the skeet range it’s amazing, but I usually use it  also when I shoot sporting and trap.

Which is your favorite shooter?
 My favorite shooters are three in particular, Georgios Achilleos, Ennio Falco and Vincent Hancock. All these three athletes are fantastic both on the range and outside it.
Who inspires you to practice shooting?
My inspiration was my father Per Hansen, he always practice shooting and he also go hunting, so he transmitted to me the passion for the guns and inspired me to start this sport.

Which is your favorite shooting range and why?
 My favorite shooting range is in Italy, in Taranto and the name is ILVA Tiro a Volo Taranto. I like it so much, and this is not really famous.

How many years do you have when you first took up a gun?
My first time with a gun I was 12 years old. I was together with my father on hunting in Denmark, and he let me try to shoot. It was amazing for me and I decided to try to shoot in a shooting range.

Which are your plans and goals for the future?
In my future plans there are a lot of training for the World Cups, the European Championships, the World Championships and Olympic Games 2016. I have to stay concentrate on my goals and do all my best to reach them.

Which is your advice for someone who use you as an inspiration?
My suggestion would be to hold your focus on the shooting, do it simple and train hard. For me these are the main thing to do to success in every sport.
