You don't have to kill someone to be a "professional" in a SPORT. And let's not let the anti's forget that shooting is a SPORT for most of us.
None of them are paid by their sponsors. Sponsorship is limited to supplying rifles, ammo, optics, etc. Maybe occasionally entry fees. And that is only for a small percentage of the competitors.
