Las Vegas, NV –-(Ammoland.com)- Meet Team Captain Jason Koon at the 2012 SHOT Show. Jason will be in the Heckler & Koch booth #13172, to answer questions about competitive shooting competitions.
In 2011 Heckler & Koch launch a shooting team to get involved and support shooting sports. The move marked HK's first entry into the competitive shooting sports organized by the USPSA (United States Practical Shooting Association) and related sport shooting groups.
“We had an exciting year as this was our first major involvement in competitive shooting in the USA at this level,” said Mark Osborne, HK's Director of Sales. “HK Germany has a European-based team but this is an opportunity for HK-USA and our American team to showcase what they can do.”
“One major advantage we have is that the HK guns our team members use don't require much in the way of modification or tuning. Our team will be using their P30L pistols pretty much right out of the box.”
The team members participated at U.S. Steel Nationals, NRA Bianchi Cup, Steel Challenge World, USPSA Nationals, and a number of state competitions. The team will continue to use standard production-grade HK P30L models as their primary competitive pistols.
The shooting team will debut the MR556A1 rifle in 2012 3-gun matches.
