When he was 11 years old, Clayton Wisdom’s uncle handed him his first single-action revolver to shoot. Afterward, his uncle told him, “You just beat half of SASS.” He’s only gotten faster since. Better known by the Instagram handle @molefty_18, Wisdom, now 20 years old, has won a world title, state titles, and numerous regionals as a competitive SASS shooter.
