Taurus Young Guns Larche Scores Big at USPSA Louisiana Gator Classic
Taurus International Manufacturing, Inc. , the leading manufacturer of concealed carry and small frame pistols, finds team member Alex Larche continuing his charge in competition at the USPSA Louisiana Section Match, taking a 1st Place in the C-Class, High Junior and 3rd Place in Section (LA) Champion. From paper targets to pepper poppers, the Southern Shooting Center, located in Thibodaux, LA set up a fast-paced, 12 stage match that had shooters competing for the podium at the LA Section Championship.
Recently signed as a Taurus Young Guns team member, Larche competed with his Taurus 24/7 OSS in the Production division. His passion for the sport combined with his drive, discipline and determination are key elements to his success on the range. “Once again, Alex made his Taurus family proud of his shooting performance at the Louisiana Gator Classic. We are extremely happy for him and are excited about the role he is playing on our team,” states Taurus Team Captain Jessie Duff, “we are honored to be part of this exciting time in his life as we live vicariously through him as he trains, travels and competes.”
When Taurus entered the world of competitive shooting, it had a goal in mind, which was to grow the sport by reaching new genres of shooters – women and youth. In 2011, Jessie Duff was recruited to take on the role of Taurus Team Captain with the vision of developing a new generation of shooting ambassadors, meeting stringent requirements both on the range and in public. After an extensive search in 2013, it was very apparent that Alex Larche met the requirements necessary to become the first Taurus Young Guns member. He is not only that talented of a shooter, but portrays himself in a positive manner when he is both on and off the range. He exemplifies what Taurus is looking for in their future shooters’ program. Alex will be competing in the Production and Single Stack classes at local, regional and national matches.
“I had a great match that was made even greater from the squad I was shooting with. They were very supportive and I really enjoyed my time on the range with them,” states Larche. “This is my second year of shooting the match and I look forward to making it back here again next year! I am very thankful to be a part of the Taurus family. With Taurus Team Captain, Jessie Duff and the others at Taurus, I am honored to have such great support.”
