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 shotgun is my Beretta SO6, Actually I didn’t use this particular model of gun to train and do competitions, but I still love this one.  

Why do you prefer to use that gun in particular?
 I love this gun because I always feel good using that, but I admit that the Beretta DT11 is so much better for competitions because of it is light and it have a great engineer

Which is your favorite shooter?
 My favorite shooter is Mr. Andrea Benelli, because he’s a great man on the range and outside that, he have the capacity to transmit you positive feeling. But I try to learn and take the best from every shooter that I face on the range. I think that it’s good to learn from everyone.

Who inspires you to practice shooting?
My inspirations are my parents.

Which is your most beautiful anecdote connected to the shooting sport?
 My favorite anecdote connected to this sport is a funny gag that I and the other members of the Spanish team did at our team coach some years ago.

Which is your favorite shooting range?
My favorite shooting range San Marcial, and it’s located where I live and train. I love this range because it have a beautiful view, it’s the best one that I ever see.

How many years do you have when you first took up a gun?
I was 9 years old and I was hunting with my father and that day he couldn’t hit any bird. His friends that were with us told him to let me try to shoot and with the first shoot I hunted. I have to say thank you to my father for being behind my shoulders supporting me, because if he wasn’t there I would fell on the ground because of the recoil of the gun.

Which are your plans and goals for the future?
 I would like to be a participant of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, so I will train a lot to reach this goal. After that I will see what to do.

Which is your advice for someone who use you as an inspiration?
 My advice is to train a lot to reach what they want and always be patient, no matter what will happen.
