Safariland congratulates team member, Bobby McGee, for winning the ESP (Enhanced Service Pistol) Division with the fastest overall time of 187.87 at the 2013 IDPA Central California Regional Championship held in Winton, CA on Sunday, June 30.
McGee was faced with 10 technical stages and more than 130 competitors at the Rivers Oaks Range hosted by Mid-Valley Defensive Shooters. “This match had a few stages where you had to draw your pistol off-balance, while seated and also moving,” said McGee. “During this point, it is very critical that you get a high positive grip on the pistol, and the Safariland Model 5197 makes it happen…it rides at that perfect height on the belt. You can’t go wrong with this set-up.”
“Bobby is one of the top-rated IDPA shooters on the west coast, as well as nationally,” said Scott Carnahan, Team Captain and Vice President, Equipment Category Marketing. “Bobby’s dedication to the IDPA sport was instrumental in the development of the new Range Series holster product line. We’re thrilled to have Bobby represent Safariland in this sport as he demonstrates the value of the Safariland and Bianchi products he designs.”
McGee competes in IDPA competitions with a Safariland Model 5197 Open Top Concealment Holster with Belt Loop, Model 332 Range Series Belt, and a prototype of the new Range Series 778 Double Magazine Pouch, expected to be released this fall. McGee uses this equipment for ESP, SSP and CDP divisions. “Shooting competition is our passion and we design and shoot the best gear available,” said McGee.
