Alexis Biermann has been competing in IPSC since 2009.
Lexi as she is affectionately known, has been competing in IPSC since 2009. She has received Boland Provincial colours in 2011, 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017.
As well as:
Ladies Africa Area Champion IPSC (Open division) 2012 and 2015.
South African Open Ladies Champion IPSC 2016 and 2017.
Lexi also competed in the IPSC World Shoot XVI in Greece (2011) and the IPSC World Shoot XVIII in France (2017) and is currently placed 10th in the World. She competed as a member of the Ladies Open Team which was made up of 4 members. The match consisted of 30 exceptionally well-designed stages over a 5 day period. Add extreme summer weather conditions to the mix it was a huge achievement when the ladies placed 3rd and brought home the Bronze medal. This now hangs amongst Lexi’s many other medals, awards and trophies as a Sports Shooter. Always modest, Lexi’s only comment when asked, was that it was an honour to meet and compete against the best of the best.
She then went on to receive National Colours in 2017. With her talent, hard work and drive, combined with the never-ending support of her family, Dad Keith Biermann’s knowledge and Mom Debbi Biermann’s support we expect to see Alexis’s name in lights in the Sports shooting world.

Did you know?
In most European countries you cannot just shoot.
Assault firearms and handguns are even difficult to arrange for shooting training. Typically, it’s only clay target (pigeon) shooting! So, come for a full shooting experience with assault weapons and handguns, in a safe and controlled environment.
What an unforgettable corporate team-building exercise.
The packages include instruction, use of safety equipment, use of firearms and ammo (under supervision, of course!), followed by shooting for pure fun and then for a score. What better way to spend an afternoon! Club entry is extra at a cost of R60 per person cash. Please try bring cash along for this as far as possible.
