Essex Junction, VT –-(Ammoland.com)- Max Michel, champion shooter for Revision, leads this year’s competitive season with the Open Division Title at the 2011 Florida Open, held February 18, in Frostproof, FL.
Michel begins the 2011 circuit after an impressive 2010 season where Michel broke USPSA Area records and won a spot on Team USA for the 2011 IPSC World Shoot XVI.

“The 13th annual Florida Open was an extremely technical and challenging match.
