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 actually using, the Beretta DT11 model.

Why do you prefer to use that gun in particular?
I love this gun because of its technology and its reliability. I’ve never feel so good with a gun like I feel with the DT11.

Which is your favorite shooter?
My favorite shooter is Giovanni Pellielo. In my opinion he is the best shooter ever because of his regularity on the range. He is always a guarantee for a good result.

Who inspires you to practice shooting?
My inspiration was my father, because he is always on the shooting ranges practicing and when I went with him, seeing who he shoot, I fell in love with this sport and I decided to try to become a great shooter.

Which is your most beautiful anecdote connected to the shooting sport?
My most curious anecdote connected to this sport was when I stayed for 2 days in a Mexican airport because of a flight had a lot of problems, and I arrived at the destination city just before 7 hours before the competition. I couldn’t train and so I didn’t finish in the first 10. Now tell this story is funny, but it wasn’t when it happened.

Which is your favorite shooting range?
Without any doubt my favorite shooting center is in Slovenia, where I won 2 World Cups and I grab 2 Olympic qualifications.

How many years do you have when you first took up a gun?
My first time with a gun in my hands was when I was 14 years old and I went hunting with my father. He proposed me to try the gun, and the feeling for me was amazing.

Which are your plans and goals for the future?
My plans are about training a lot to reach the Olympic Games of Rio with obviously a qualification, and being so competitive to enter in the final and won a medal.

Which is your advice for someone who use you as an inspiration?  
 I just want to advise everybody that this sport need a lot of love and training is so important, everybody should train everyday if it’s possible. But is also important to take this sport in a easy way, because stress can only ruin everything.
