After the competition, Jessie Duff stated, “The Steel Nationals marked my first match of the 2015 shooting season, and I couldn’t be happier with kicking the season off with a clean sweep! Shooting Steel is one of my favorite matches, it allows shooters to go all out with speed, and you really see some incredible talent at this match. The new location, Volusia County Gun & Hunt Club, for the Steel Nationals is a great facility, and has plenty of room for this type of match. I enjoyed shooting on the range, and think the match has found a great place to call home.”

The US National Steel Championships was full of excitement and adrenaline this year with eight challenging stages, a list of veteran shooters, and anticipation for the upcoming season. Under the watch of Match Director Mike Calloway, the event ran very smooth and the high level of professionalism by the staff and volunteers was greatly appreciated by Jessie and the other shooters.

Jessie next match will be the USPSA Single-Stack National Championship, May 6-9, 2015 in Barry, Illinois.
