The United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) held the 2013 STI Limited Nationals this past Monday through Wednesday in St. George, Utah.
Nearly 250 of the country’s best Limited shooters came to Utah to compete in USPSA’s national competition. Hosted at the Southern Utah Shooting Sports Park, the match included 22 challenging courses of fire.
Awards and prizes were announced Wednesday night and the top male and female winners for the Limited Division competition were Nils Jonason and Jessie Duff.
Other top winning men included Dave Sevigny, Manny Bragg, Rob Leatham and Robert Vogel respectively. Taking the top ladies’ titles were Randi Rogers, Lisa Munson, Tori Nonaka and Brooke Sevigny respectively.
The desert setting threw in some additional obstacles for the shooters as wind picked up significantly on the last day of shooting. Competitors were challenged to fight both the difficult courses of fire as well as mother nature. Gusts up to 30 to 40 mph kicked up dust and at times obscured entire targets.
“Through it all competitors had a great time and fiercely battled it out for the top spots,” said USPSA President Phil Strader about the overall match.
USPSA matches are unlike any other shooting sport combining speed, power and accuracy – competitors move, run through obstacles, shoot and reload until the fastest, most accurate shooter wins.
