SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. –-(Ammoland.com)- For the fourth year in a row, and the seventh time in his career, Glock’s Dave Sevigny of Smyrna, Ga. has won the Area 8 Production division title, this time winning seven of the 10 stages at the U.S. Practical Shooting Association’s (USPSA) 2010 TechWear USA Area 8 Regional Handgun Championship this past weekend at the Fredericksburg Rod and Gun Club in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

“When you win a regional championship as often as Dave has won the Area 8 match you’re not just the champion but the owner. Dave continues to be one of, if not the dominant force in USPSA’s Production division and this latest win is further proof of his supremacy with the Glock,” said Michael Voigt, president of the U.S. Practical Shooting Association.
Stader, who is no stranger to the Area 8 winner’s circle with past wins in the Limited and Limited-10 divisions, finished the match with three stage wins and top three finishes on all but one stage to post a final score of 1008.1491.
