MIAMI – July 11, 2016 – Taurus® congratulates Grand Master and Taurus Team Captain Jessie Duff on her recent Overall Single Stack win during the Florida State Steel Challenge Championship at the Shoot GTR range in Gainesville, Florida.
The Taurus-sponsored match attracted top competitors for prizes and cash payouts. With eight stages set to the Steel Challenge Shooting Association (SCSA) format, shooters are driven to focus on speed and accuracy. This year they had an added challenge as they pushed through scorching heat and high humidity. The 2016 inaugural championship, debuted over three days, set the stage for Duff to compete at the World Speed Shooting Championship in August.
“The Steel Challenge is one of my favorite disciplines to shoot. I love to share the sport with others and having some of my Taurus family join me to compete made this a memorable experience,” comments Duff. “Having Taurus embrace the shooting sports is encouragement not only to myself, but to future competitors. As a first year event, match director, Matt Mitchell did an outstanding job recruiting over 100 participants to promote the shooting sports.”
Duff’s next match will be at the USPSA Area Three Championships July 30-31, 2016 in Grand Island, Nebraska.
