Evelyn Primm was inducted in to the California Trapshooting Hall of Fame in 2007.

Evelyn Primm began her trapshooting career in 1952, and just over two years later became the first woman to earn her way to the then-maximum 25 yard line. At the 1955 California State Shoot, on April 16, she broke 96 from the 26-yard line to become the fourth ATA shooter and first woman to make it to the 27-yard line. It was 15 years before another woman accomplished this feat.

During the shoot, Primm carded 94 in the Doubles Championship, winning the title over the entire field. She also earned long-yardage honors in the feature handicap.

Primm was named to six consecutive women's All-American teams, starting in 1954. She was on the second team in 1957, while all the other placements were on the first.

At the 1954 Grand American, Primm landed the women's title in the Dayton Homecoming and was ladies's runnerup in the Doubles Championship.

She collected additional trophies at the Golden West Grand, Las Vegas GC, and midwinter shoots at Bakersfield, Sacramento and Rancho Angeles.

In 1958 Primm was chosen by the ATA Executive Committee to represent the U.S. at the International Shooting Competition in Moscow, where she won a silver and two bronze medals during practice days.

During her trapshooting career, Evelyn registered 23,450 singles, 22,000 handicap and 8,100 doubles targets.
