Woolrich, PA –-(Ammoland.com)- Team Woolrich shooter Max Michel, Jr., reminded the world speed shooting community that when it comes to shooting steel, few are better at it.
With a third-place finish at the United States National Steel Championships this weekend, Michel posted a blistering time of 81.84 seconds, just .76 of a second off the leader.
“Steel Challenge shooting comes down to the narrowest of margins,” Michel said. “You have to be near perfect in every facet of shooting or you lose valuable time on the clock. A few hundredths of a second can mean the difference between winning and losing.”
To put this time into perspective, Michel drew his pistol 39 times and hit 195 targets in that span.
In the Rimfire Class, Michel scored a second-place finish in his first-ever run in the .22LR event. With a total time of 65.14 seconds, Michel was just .52 of a second off the leader.
Next up for Michel is the USPSA Area 6 Championship in Frostproof, Fla. in mid-April.
Michel is part of a rock-solid shooting team, including USPSA, Precision Rifle, 3-Gun and International Defensive Pistol Association experts. In addition to representing the brand, these shooters put Woolrich Elite gear through punishing tests of fit, comfort and durability.
