Winning Women’s Titles in
7 Different Action Shooting Sports
In 2006 she became the first and only Five Division USPSA Ladies National Champion, winning the Ladies National Title at the USPSA Limited-10, Single-Stack and Production Nationals. Accumulating all these titles in the same year, she became the first woman ever to earn a USPSA Nationals Triple Crown. In 2011 Julie won the Ladies Revolver National Title at the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) Nationals, becoming the first shooter in history (male or female) to win a national title in all six USPSA divisions.
Julie began shooting with her father, Pete Goloski, at age fourteen. What started as a father/daughter weekend hobby evolved into an accomplished shooting career. Julie’s talent was recognized in 1995 when the U.S. Army recruited her to shoot for the Army Action Shooting Team. Before long she became an unbeatable force, as the 1999 USPSA Limited (iron sight) and Open (race gun) Ladies Champion and Ladies World Speed Shooting Champion, unprecedented for a lady shooter in the same year. Julie was named U.S. Army Female Athlete of the Year, a prestigious honor that had never before been bestowed on an action shooter.
This champion, veteran, wife and mother is also an accomplished writer, sharing the shooting sports and her experiences through articles published in major firearms publications, outdoor and shooting news wires and her blog. In 2012 Skyhorse Publishing released Julie’s first book, Shoot: Your Guide to Shooting and Competition. The book serves as both an introduction to firearms and shooting for novices (with an emphasis on safety) and a primer to help experienced shooters improve their skills. Julie is passionate about the book and says…
“I think there is a shooting sport out there for everyone whether it’s the fast-paced action shooting sports, drilling out the x-ring or busting clay targets. I love the challenge of trying new sports and divisions. It only makes me a better shooter and I hope, by sharing my passion, I help inspire someone else to give a shooting sport a try.”
