SMYRNA, Ga. (Feb. 6, 2012) – The 2012 competitive shooting season is official here, and Team GLOCK has started the season out right – with a win! Team GLOCK’s Randi Rogers opened the season by winning or placing high in every division she entered in the Georgia State Steel Challenge Championship, held Feb. 3-4 at the Griffin Gun Club, in Griffin, GA.
Steel shooting offers a port of entry to competitive shooting that is far less daunting than practical shooting; it provides an excellent starting place for young or beginning shooters. The tournament features eight steel challenge courses of fire and requires a minimum of 195 rounds to complete each division.
Reigning IPSC Ladies Standard World Champion, Randi Rogers took the Production Division’s Overall Championship title, as well as finishing fourth overall in the Open .22 Division and third overall and High Lady in the Open Division. Rogers competed with a G34 and a G17 Open gun both worked on by S&J Custom.
“This was by far my best finish at a Steel Challenge match,” stated Rogers. “I always have a wonderful time competing, and am very excited to have started off the season with such a high note.”
“Our shooting team continues to showcase their talents and demonstrate the diversity of the GLOCK pistols,” said Vice President of Sales and Marketing Gary Fletcher. “After her dominating finish at the World Shoot last year, Randi continues to place at or near the top of the standings in every competition she participates in. All of us at GLOCK, Inc., congratulate Team GLOCK for a fantastic start to the new season and look forward to another great shooting season.”
Randi Rogers will next compete in the USPSA Florida Open, held Feb. 17th, in Frostproof, FL. Tori Nonaka will compete at the IDPA North Carolina Iron Man, held Feb. 11th in Prospect Hill, NC.
