(Bainbridge, GA) – Taurus, manufacturer of premium handguns for defense, hunting, and sport shooting, is thrilled to welcome KC Eusebio as the newest member of the company’s expanding competitive shooting team.
A top-tier professional shooter, KC has won numerous championship titles in his 25-year career behind the trigger, including many world championships, and he holds the distinction of being the youngest USPSA Master (age 10), Grandmaster (age 12), and World Speed Shooting Championship winner (age 15).
Following his early shooting career, KC—a first-generation American—enlisted in the U.S. Army, where he eventually earned a spot on the service’s elite Army Marksmanship Unit shooting team. Since his service, KC has continued his competitive shooting endeavors, serving as the GLOCK Shooting Team Captain, and capturing additional World Speed Shooting titles along with the coveted USPSA Open National title. When he’s not competing, KC works with META Group International, a company he co-founded to offer firearms training to military, law enforcement, and civilians.
“I’ve had the privilege to watch and compete alongside KC for 16 years now,” said Taurus Shooting Team Captain Jessie Harrison, “and there isn’t a better advocate to the industry or champion to the sport that I would rather bring on board. In my opinion, it speaks volumes to the growth and innovation of Taurus for us to be able to expand the team and sign such a seasoned competitor. KC brings years of knowledge and experience from behind the gun that will be a valuable asset to the company and to the goals we want to achieve. I look forward to the future of Taurus and our newly expanded shooting team.”
Of his new appointment, KC said, “I’m so incredibly excited to be a part of the Taurus family. I’ve observed the company over the last decade and Taurus truly cares about their employees and customers, and that means the world to me. They are headed in the direction that I want to be a part of. I’m also very honored to be able to work and shoot alongside Jessie. She is the embodiment of a true professional in our field. I’m here to bring my knowledge and experience to the team so that we can make huge strides in the industry. I can’t wait to be a part of some amazing projects in the near future.”
Taurus USA’s involvement in the competitive shooting arena provides valued insight and feedback that translate directly into new technology, design, and handgun models that ultimately are placed in the hands of consumers. Expanding the Taurus Shooting Team with a seasoned professional like KC Eusebio will further the Taurus mission to manufacture reliable, top-performing handguns for personal defense and recreation.
“With such a prestigious shooting career and a vast knowledge of firearms,” said Bret Vorhees, Taurus President and CEO, “KC will be not only a great Taurus ambassador, but also a tremendous asset to the development of future Taurus products.”
