(Bainbridge, GA) – Taurus, manufacturer of premium handguns for defense, hunting, and sport shooting, is excited to announce that Shooting Team Captain Jessie Harrison captured a big win at the recent USPSA Area 3 Championship held August 2 in Grand Island, Nebraska.
“It felt great to be traveling and competing again,” said Harrison. “I haven’t shot a match since November 2019. Covid-19 has effected everyone’s life. Being able to bring home a championship win for Taurus and all my sponsors made for a great first match back!”
Harrison, who is one of the top-ranked women shooters in the world, swept the Ladies Open Division for a first-place win and placed 16th overall in the Open Division from a field of 65 competitors.
“Area 3 is one of my favorite matches to shoot because you’ll see stages there unlike anywhere else. They put a lot of creative thought and effort into designing a match that will not only challenge the shooter but also give them a fun experience at the same time.”
The Area 3 USPSA is a physically challenging match with big round-count stages featuring numerous obstacles at each stage, many of which the shooter must interact with or manipulate while shooting. This year’s match included jumping over barrels, shooting from a balance beam, and activating targets with an 8-lb. shot put.
