Beretta Skeet Shooter



Hi everybody! My name is Vincent Hancock and I’m a skeet shooter since 2001. I was born in Florida on March 19th 1989 and I’m currently training at Fort Worth Trap and Skeet with the DT11 model of Beretta. I’m an Athlete and my way of life is believing that God is number one in my family and my family is my life and my love. But my passion lies in the shooting sports and helping children.





Vincent started shooting when he was 12 years old and he first competed in an ISSF event in 2005. During this year he won the gold medal at the World Championship in Lonato and at the World Cup in Changwon and he took the silver medal at the two World Cups of Belgrade and Rome and at the World Cup Final who took place in Dubai.

In May 2008 he married Rebekah and in August the competed at his first Olympic Games in Beijing at the age of 19 and he won the gold medal establishing a new Olympic Record.

In 2010 during August he become father of his first daughter, Bailey, and two years later, before participating at the London Olympic Games he become father for the second time; his daughter Brenlyn was born in February. During the XXX Summer Olympics he won yet another gold medal and established the new Olympic Record.

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. Vincent Hancock shots with Dt11 Beretta.

Which is your favorite gun?
My favorite gun is the model that I use actually, the Beretta DT11.

Why do you prefer to use that gun in particular?
 I prefer this gun in particular because it is the best shooting gun I have ever shot

Which is your favorite shooter?
 I don’t idolize anyone other than God but I certainly respect Ennio Falco, Andrea Benelli, Todd Graves, and Matt Dryke as being some of the best shooters in the history of my sport.

Who inspires you to practice shooting?
My inspiration comes from my love for the Game. I enjoy putting in the hours on the range everyday. I train to get better everyday and I know that if I can get better every time I’m on the range then I will be successful.

Which is your most memorable anecdote connected to the shooting sport?
When I was 12 years old an old Italian man came up to me and told me the “Secret” of shooting. He said: “Son, if you think about it, you screw up.”

Which is your favorite shooting range?
 I love shooting in Lonato, Italy, because it is where I won my first World Championships at 16 years old and also where I set the perfect 150 World Record.

How many years do you have when you first took up a gun?
 My father took me out to the shooting range to shoot on my own when I was about 10 years old.

Which are your plans and goals for the future?
My goal is to get to Rio in 2016 and win another Gold medal. Other than that I will do my best and let God take care of the rest!

Which is your advice for someone who use you as an inspiration?
In my opinion it doesn’t take raw talent to become successful at something. If you want it bad enough and are willing to work hard enough then you can get to anything you set your mind to.
