Allen McCannon was born on Christmas Day 1959 in Elberton Georgia. He has been in the granite industry his entire adult life and owns Tombstone Skeet Club.
Allen started shooting shotguns at the age of six and has been an avid hunter ever since. He helped build a local gun club in the early eighties and found that shooting skeet was a sport he truly enjoyed. He joined the NSSA in the mid-eighties and a shot in a few local tournaments. Then, in 1998 a close friend got Allen back into skeet shooting, which really began his competitive shooting.
Since then, he has been named to the All-American team thirteen times, three of which were the open team and has over 180,000 lifetime targets. Allen was honored to be inducted into the Georgia Skeet Shooting Association Hall of Fame in 2007. He has also served as president, vice president and treasurer of the GSSA and has been a NSSA director for the state of Georgia for over eight years.
