SMYRNA, Ga. –-(Ammoland.com)- Team GLOCK members Tori Nonaka and Michelle Viscusi recently returned from a multi-country tour in Europe; winning matches along the way. Captain Shane Coley holds down the domestic front.
The ladies of Team GLOCK first traveled to Spezia, Italy, where the annual FUN GUN 101 European Championship is held, at the Forte Canarbino Shooting Club.
This match draws some of the fastest shooters from around the world as the stages are designed to challenge target acquisition, focusing on speed over strategy. Nonaka captured High Lady Overall, shooting with her G34 Gen4, and took first place Overall in the Production Division. Viscusi placed second Lady Overall in the match.
Nonaka continued on to the European Steel Championship in Winterswijk, Netherlands. Continuing her winning streak, Nonaka again captured High Lady Overall with the G34 Gen4 for the Limited Division. She shot the G17 Gen4 in both the Open Division and .22 Optic.
A short flight to Germany brought Nonaka to the next challenge on the tour, the German Steel Challenge. Nonaka rang up another High Lady Overall. From Germany she headed to the Czech Republic for the 2015 CZ Extreme open where she earned yet another High Lady accolade in the Standard Division with the G35 Gen4.
“This trip was an amazing opportunity and I am a stronger competitor now,” said Nonaka. “I trained three times a day; twice on the range and once at the gym. I’m happy to return home to the U.S. and looking forward to applying what I’ve learned during the trip to practical shooting.”
Back in the States, new Team GLOCK Captain, Shane Coley competed in the World Class Speed on Steel match in Old Bridge, NJ and then traveled to Wichita Falls, TX for the Double Tap Championship, competing with his G34 Gen4.
