Team SureFire’s Maggie Reese on ‘Top Shot' Season 2
Fountain Valley, CA –-(Ammoland.com)- SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-end illumination tools and tactical products, is proud to announce that Team SureFire women’s shooting sports captain, Maggie Reese, will be a competing in season two of HISTORY channel’s hit competition series “Top Shot.”
Reese was selected out thousands of applicants as one of sixteen marksmen who will compete for the $100,000 prize.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of Top Shot,” said Reese. “As a 3-gun shooter, I’m very comfortable with pistols, rifles and shotguns. However, Top Shot tests your ability to do more than just pull a trigger and it’s going to be fun to get outside of my comfort zone.”
Reese is no stranger to competition. She is a semi-professional pistol and multi-gun shooter for Team SureFire on a full-time basis. She is a back-to-back USPSA Nationals 3-Gun Champion and has won a variety of other local and regional shooting matches in just over three years of full-time competition.
“My father literally pushed me into shooting,” said Reese. “ He told me to try it once and if I didn’t like it then he’d never make me go again. I loved it and now it’s great to walk into a competition as a female, feel completely underestimated, send the first shots downrange and watch the jaws drop.”
The all-new cast of 14 men and just two women, one being Maggie Reese, includes a 10-time NRA pistol champ, two former world shooting champs, a Texas cop, a Jersey shore Air Force sniper, a Bronze Star recipient, and representatives from four branches of the military.
The 13-week series premieres Tuesday, February 8 at 10pm ET on HISTORY. For more information on Top Shot and to see Maggie Reese’s shooter profile, visit HISTORY.com.
