Julie Goloski Golob is a professional markswoman, competition shooter, and national/world champion. She is the only six Division USPSA National Champion in history.

Julie Goloski began her shooting career when she was fourteen, practicing with her father, Pete Goloski. She continued competing through high school and, in 1994, met with the coach of the Army Action Shooting Team. The coach sent her a letter of acceptance and Julie joined the United States Army. In 1999, she competed at the USPSA Nationals and ended up winning at the Limited and Open Division. That year, she was also named US Army Athlete of the Year[1][2]

In 2002, Goloski left the Army to become a professional markswoman. She received a contract with Glock and started competing for them. In 2006 Julie joined Team Smith & Wesson. In 2006, Goloski won three Divisions at the USPSA Nationals (Limited-10, Single Stack, and Production) becoming the first female to do so.[3] More recently, she won the Production and Revolver Division at the 2011 USPSA Nationals as Julie Golob. This was the first time any shooter had won all six divisions.[4]

In 2012, Golob appeared as an expert in the fourth season of History Channel's Top Shot.

Golob lives in Kansas City, Missouri with her husband and two daughters.
