SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -( Smith & Wesson is proud to announce that long-time team member Josh Lentz, won the revolver class at the 2017 Florida Open Pistol Shooting Championship.

Josh fired 300 rounds over 11 stages with his Performance Center Model 929 revolver. Lentz won seven stages en route to the championship, delivering a final score of 100-percent.

“The match was very challenging,” Lentz said. “The stages were a mix of targets positioned at different distances, with some targets moving and some static. Through every stage, my Performance Center Model 929 revolver ran flawlessly. This is one of the ‘must-attend’ United States Practical Shooting Association matches of the year, and I am extremely proud to have represented Smith & Wesson.”

The event was hosted by the Universal Shooting Academy in Frostproof, Florida. Over 400 shooters competed in the event.
