The United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) held the 2013 southern regional handgun shooting championships in St. Augustine, Florida this past Friday through Sunday.
More than 370 of the country’s best pistol shooters came to St. Augustine to compete in the Area 6 Championship match. The match included 12 challenging courses of fire to test the shooters’ skills with the pistol.
Hosted at the Ancient City Range, shooters competed in regional titles in USPSA’s Open, Limited, Limited 10, Production, Revolver and Single Stack divisions.
The top winners included Travis Tomasie, Manny Bragg and Lesgar Murdock in the Limited Division. Open Division titles went to David Pruitt of Red Dot, Bill Drummond and KC Eusebio. Production winners are Matthew Mink of CZ-USA, Brandon Wright and Sonny Morton III. The top three Single Stack division winners included some of the nation’s best shooters, Max Michel from Sig Sauer, Dave Sevigny and USPSA President Phil Strader. High Junior went to Jason Katz from Wyoming Antelope Club.
“This was a great match,” said Donna Web, Area Championship Match Director. “With challenging weather and 12 difficult stages, the shooters really were put the test.”
USPSA is the national governing body for the sport of practical shooting in the U.S. and has more than 20,000 members competing in weekly matches throughout the country, as well as regional and national championships.
