SMYRNA, Ga. – Team GLOCK continued their top finishing season at they competed in the USPSA Double Tap Championships, held June 3-5, in Wichita Falls, TX and the World Class Speed on Steel 2011, held June 3-4, in Old Bridge, NJ. Randi Rogers, who represented the team at the USPSA Double Tap, finished as Ladies Limited Division champion and 25th overall. Tori Nonaka, who competed in the Speed on Steel, placed tenth in the Iron Sight Centerfire division and 14th in the Open Centerfire.
Rogers performance at the Double Tap Championships put her against a deep field of world champions, where she was faced with stages such as the “Sea Serpent.” This particular stage required the competitors to hit 14 paper targets for a possible 140 points. Rogers shot the stage in 20.15 seconds and scored 131 out of the 140 points. A challenging stage, the competitor must begin at the front of a rectangular shooting area and maneuver backward to engage targets while keeping the muzzle pointed down range. In addition while moving backward the competitor must also duck below an arch built to resemble a giant sea serpent. “For my first Double Tap competition, I was very pleased with my overall placement,” stated Rogers. “Transitioning between the very accuracy intensive Bianchi Cup to the speed focused Double Tap was a challenge, but I was very happy with the outcome of the match.” Rogers competed with a GLOCK 35, .40, built by S&J Custom.
Tori Nonaka, who competed for Team GLOCK at the World Class Steel Speed on Steel, shot in both the Iron Sight Centerfire, placing tenth overall and the Open Centerfire Divisions placing 14th overall. “I looked forward to this match all year, and was very pleased with my performance,” stated Nonaka. “This exciting variation of the Steel Challenge will definitely help me to prepare for the world championship in August.” Nonaka competed with both a GLOCK 34, 9×19, built by S&J Custom and a GLOCK 17 Open Steel Gun built by Hatfield’s Gunsmithing.
Dave Sevigny will next compete in The Steel Challenge West Coast Regional in Piru, CA, June 17-19. The same weekend Randi Rogers and Tori Nonaka will be at the IDPA Carolina Cup in Oxford, NC.
