FNH USA Director of Commercial Sales and sponsored shooter Mark Hanish, edged out some tough competition to take the top position in the Tactical Optics division of the 2013 MGM Ironman held June 2-8th at the Parma Rod and Gun Club in Parma, ID. In addition to his first place finish, Hanish also took second place in Heavy Optics division.
“Ironman is one of the most demanding matches, not just for the shooter, but also for the product, with an intensity that is unparalleled when it comes to shooting 3-Gun,” said Mark Hanish when asked about the match. “Success depends on the reliability of your guns to hold up during the stress of competition and the famous “Parma Dust.” From running or climbing obstacles with my SCAR, to engaging multiple types of shotgun targets with the SLP MK I and shooting steel offhand with my FNS, I never had a single malfunction, a testament to the quality and reliability of these guns.”
“We are extremely proud of Mark’s accomplishments at the 2013 Ironman,” said Ken Pfau, Senior Vice President of Commercial Sales. “To compete and win in a match like Ironman, the shooter must be dedicated and prepared for anything, qualities Mark brings to the table each time he competes.”
The MGM Ironman, sponsored by MGM Targets, is described by Hanish as three 3-Gun’s in one, a one-of-a-kind competition designed to pitch competitors against challenging courses of fire, extreme conditions, nearly twelve hour days and roughly 2,000 rounds of ammunition down range all over the course of one week.
