EXETER, N.H. (June 5, 2011) — Max Michel, Jr., is keeping the big picture in mind as he continues to dominate the 2011 shooting season. This weekend’s victory at the Double Tap Championship is the latest win in a season that has seen the Team SIG SAUER® captain finish no worse than second.

“Last year, my focus was on winning the USPSA Area Championships,” Michel said. ‘”This season is all about preparing for the IPSC World Shoot,” to be held in Greece in late September.

Michel said the course design at the Double Tap Championship puts an emphasis on speed, but also maintains a sense of humor.

“This match has to be the most fun you can possibly have while shooting a handgun. Robert Porter puts on some very fast-paced stages where hundredths of a second mean everything,” Michel said. “That’s why I love this event. I’ve won the Double Tap six of the past seven years and was really upset to miss the match a couple years ago. Glad I made it back.”

Michel finished with a score of 1693.9383 to win the Open Division and Overall title. His next match will be the Greek Nationals in Rhodes, Greece, June 14-20.
