The Georgia State Steel Challenge was held March 5-6 at Griffin Gun Club where Team GLOCK added to their list of 2010 titles. The eight stage steel challenge tournament required a minimum of 195 rounds. 2010 marks the 5th year of the Georgia state level tournament.

A total of 108 entries were tallied among the six divisions of competition. Team Captain Dave Sevigny won the Limited division with a GLOCK 34 and finished second place in the Open division. Sevigny also won the Steel Master title for the best aggregate total which combines scores from three divisions. “Griffin recently expanded their range space to accommodate an eighth stage tournament. The state match provides an opportunity to fire the same steel challenge courses of fire at the National and World level events. It’s helpful to our team to have Griffin nearby,” said Sevigny.

Reigning ladies steel challenge National and World champion Jessie Abbate finished in second place in the Limited division with a GLOCK 17L and third place in the Open division. “Being two weeks out from the Steel Nationals, I feel good about the scores I shot this weekend. I still have a couple of weeks to train, and prepare for the Nationals, so I will make sure that everything s fine tuned and ready to race,” said Abbate.

Randi Rogers finished in second place Production division with a GLOCK 34 and seventh place in the Open division. Rogers adds, ”It was a pleasure to shoot the Georgia State Steel Challenge in my new home state of Georgia. I enjoy shooting steel because I believe that it is the most difficult style of shooting. Everyone is challenged to shoot as fast as they can while still being accurate. This match was great practice for the upcoming US Steel Nationals. I will continue to practice and improve before I leave for Florida in a couple of weeks.” Team GLOCK Shooting Squad members Sevigny, Abbate and Rogers all fired a GLOCK 17 by S&J Customs in the Open division.
