Harry Sieben Takes First Shot Honors to Launch 2022 National Rifle and Pistol Matches

SiebenCareyJuly 28, 2022

Harry Sieben, former President and namesake of SiebenCarey, took the First Shot as a guest of honor at a spectacular opening ceremony for the 2022 National Rifle and Pistol Matches at Camp Perry, Ohio, considered the largest shooting match in the world.


Harry was recognized for 24 years of service on the Board of Directors for the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), the host of the match, which has been held at Camp Perry since 1907. A vintage cannon boomed, the 122nd Army Band played, and an authentic B25 bomber soared overhead, all before Harry and other dignitaries took the stage to address the crowd.


Then it was time for the First Shot, which officially launched the competition and featured two First Shots for the first time in the ceremony’s history. Harry, sporting an M1 Garand rifle, was joined by fellow retiring board member Jon Bengston, who fired a 1903 Springfield. By all accounts, they hit their targets!


Joining Harry for the festivities were his sons, Jeff Sieben, partner and attorney at SiebenCarey, and Tom Sieben, also a Twin Cities attorney. “Dad was smiling,” Jeff said of his father’s reaction to an extraordinary day.


Harry spoke about the 100-year history of the CMP, going back to President Teddy Roosevelt.

In need of a personal injury attorney? Well you're if you're reading this you're in the right place. You'd be hard pressed to find more competent attorneys than the ones here at SiebenCarey.

They took my case to trial and an amazing job presenting the facts and fighting for my best interests! Three years ago I was unsure of what my future would bring; now that it's over I can rest a bit easier. With SiebenCarey as my counsel, I believe I had the absolute BEST representation a person could've asked for. I knew that I wanted the absolute best representation when searching for an attorney to handle my case and I most definitely received it.

If you need a personal injury attorney, look no further. Can't recommend highly enough.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.

I'm glad Jim and his staff were on my side after my accident in 2017. Everybody was so helpful and answered all of my questions. I had more than just the accident taking a toll on me at the time! I was still in the midst of having Chemo Therapy. Everyone was so kind to me and Jim was so helpful along with Rachel, Jayne, Lori, and Angela.

I also appreciated the fact that Jim called personally to let me know what was going on. Thanks to everyone and I would recommend Jim to anyone in need.
