Derrick Mein grew up on a small farm in southeast Kansas and developed a love of the outdoors at an early age tagging along with dad while quail and deer hunting. He got his start in sporting clays at age 8 joining his dad in a small league at a local club. With the help of his dad he began to develop his skills as a competitive shooter. Derrick has since been competing in the NSCA for 20 plus years accumulating more the 55,000 targets, winning 10 state championships, and named to 8 All-American teams. The shooting sports gained him a scholarship to Lindenwood University. While there he was on dual scholarship for baseball and the shotgun team. After a couple years he transferred to Kansas State University to pursue a degree in Animal Science, graduating in 2008. While at KSU he won the ACUI Collegiate Clay Target Championship, a format that includes international trap, international skeet, American skeet, American trap, and sporting clays. During his years in the shooting sports he has competed in many different disciplines, including sporting clays, skeet, trap, international trap, and helice, winning national titles and earning Team USA honors in three of them.

After graduating from college Derrick moved to Ohio where he designed and managed Cardinal Center Sporting Clays. Having successfully got the facility up and going he took the chance to move closer to home where he currently lives in a suburb of Kansas City with his wife Diana. While not at the gun club giving lessons or shooting, he spends much of his time in the outdoors fishing and hunting. Derrick was an inaugural member Professional Sporting Clays Association, as well as a perennial NSCA All-American.
