FNH USA Shooting Team Member Scores a National Title at the 2009 USPSA Multi Gun Nationals
McLean, Va. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Tasha Hanish from the FNH USA Shooting Team took home a National Title in the heavily contested Tactical Optics Division at the USPSA Multi Gun Nationals, held in Las Vegas October 22-25, 2009. Tasha is the only woman shooter on FNH USA shooting team, and one of the few women shooting the demanding 3-Gun series. Tasha — a member of the team since mid-2009 — was ecstatic.
Hanish said, “This is my first national title, and I am stoked to have it a tactical multi gun win. With the support of FNH USA, Leupold, Surefire, STI, Safariland and other sponsors, I was able to put most of my attention into the multigun events this year.
My favorite stages were stages one and two – long range rifle. In stage two, I had to rely on my ability to reload a rifle while running and changing my zero on my scope to make target acquisition faster. Honestly, both stages boosted my confidence immensely, and I now know what I need to work on to improve.”
Hanish plans to participate in 10-15 matches over the next year or so, “My goal is to repeat my titles and national win and to continue improving my performance with the guns I am regularly shooting,” she adds. The FN guns Tasha shoots with are the FN SCAR 16S rifle and the FN SLP shotgun.
Ken Pfau, vice president of sales for FNH USA and fellow team member, said, “It was huge fun to watch Tasha smoke most of the guy’s scores in these events. Tasha has played a central role in the team’s development this past year, and she brings her “A” game to each event. I hope she serves as a role model for more women to join the Multi Gun fun, she certainly brings out the best in our products”.
