Brownells Sponsored Shooter, Katie Harris Claims Top Spots at High Plains Shooting Challenge

Des Moines, Iowa – -( Team Noveske competitors Katie Harris and Jansen Jones, sponsored by Brownells, shot their way to first and third-place finishes respectively at the High Plains Shooting Challenge held at the Oklahoma City Gun Club on June 22-23, 2012.

The prestigious, shotgun-only event tested the technical and physical skills of nearly 100 top-level shooters from around the U.S. Using IPSC rules, the event divides competitors into three divisions – Standard, Standard-Manual (pump) and Open – depending on their specific shotgun and sighting system used.

Over the course of 12 complex stages, shooters engaged both moving and static targets from a number of abnormal and awkward shooting positions using buckshot, birdshot, and slugs.

“The match was very difficult, but fun,” said Harris, who finished as the top lady in the standard division. “It certainly tested us with our shotguns.”

Jones, who finished third overall in the standard-manual division, agreed with Harris.

“I personally enjoyed shooting from unusual positions. It was a real challenge, and emphasized the shooter’s physical skills.”

In addition to its support of Team Noveske, Brownells also served as a stage sponsor of the one-of-a-kind competition.

“We are thrilled to see 3-Gun style competitions grow in popularity,” said Pete Brownell, President/CEO of Brownells. “These events are a great way for shooters of all skill levels to get out and enjoy the shooting sports. And, with the variety of stages, they are great for new product discovery and testing.”
