Sevigny, competing with his production FNS-9 Longslide equipped with Warren Tactical Series Sevigny competition sights, earned division champion in Limited and Production divisions as well as winning his ninth consecutive Iron Sight division champion title at the match. When asked about his strategic approach, Sevigny noted that “consistency was essential. Or in other words, flawless draws from the holster, efficient presentations to target and decisive transition speed, timing and trigger control.”
Competing alongside Sevigny was the newest member of Team FNH USA, Brooke Sevigny, embarking on her first full season shooting with the Pro Team. Like Sevigny, Brooke was equipped with the 5-inch FNS-9 Longslide and earned two top ten finishes in the Limited and Production divisions.
According to match director, Glenn Webber, the Georgia State Steel Championship has been held consecutively for the past nine years and has seen the popularity of the match grow each year. The turnout for the 2014 match drew four times the number of participants from their inaugural 2006 match and saw competitors from Georgia, Alabama, Missouri, Virginia and as far north as Connecticut.
