Carl Junction, MO – Members of the Secure Firearm Products (SFP) Shooting Team traveled to Centerton, Arkansas this past weekend to compete in the 2012 Arkansas Ruger Rimfire Match held at the Nighthawk Custom Training Academy (www.nighthawkcustomtraining.com).
Cousins Aaron and Louis Surgi both competed at the event and turned in some outstanding scores. Louis experienced some unfortunate ammo malfunctions but still managed to capture the title of Top Junior with a score of 100.67. Louis shoots an Ruger 22/45 pistol which was customized by Volquartsen Custom and a customized Ruger 10/22 Rifle with an Arch Angel Stock and Volquartsen Custom Carbon Fiber Barrel and trigger components. “I’d like to thank Nighthawk Custom Training Academy for putting on such a great match,” said Louis, “as well as my sponsors Volquartsen Custom, Arch Angel, Pro-Ears, “What-Ya-Say” and of course Secure Firearm Products for all their support.”
This was Aaron Surgi’s first time shooting a Ruger Rimfire Match and when asked how it went said, “It was a lot of fun and I did pretty well for my first time. I can’t wait to get back home and start practicing for the next one.” Aaron plans this season are to continue shooting Rimfire on the SFP Team. Aaron shot a Metalic Sight Ruger 22/45 and his Great Grandfather’s Model 63 Winchester Rifle that has been handed down through the generations of the Surgi family. “I’d like to thank my sponsor Secure Firearm Products and everyone at Nighthawk Custom Training Academy for such a great weekend.”
