From GLOCK - More Area Wins for Team GLOCK on the Road to the GLOCK Sponsored USPSA Nationals
Smyrna, Georgia – Team GLOCK Captain KC Eusebio and Tori Nonaka competed in the last remaining Area Championships. They continue to ramp up for the USPSA Nationals that will be held September 24-28, 2014, in St George, UT.
The Area 4 Championship was held at the Old Fort Gun Club in Fort Smith, AR. In the 13-stage match, Nonaka shot a penalty free match to secure her High Lady title for the match. Nonaka commented, “I really enjoyed competing at Area 4. The match was well designed with no shoot targets and difficult shooting positions. I like the challenge of determining when to speed up orslow down depending on the difficulty level of the target."
The following week Team GLOCK advanced on to Dartmouth, MA, for the USPSA Area 7 match. The nine stage, 204+ roundcount match found Nonaka once again standing on the podium collecting yet another High Lady award, while Team Captain, KC Eusebio swooped in with an incredible performance to capture the OPEN title for the Northeastern Classic. “I was incredibly focused at this match. Everything came together as I attacked each of the stages. I was keenly aware of whom I was competing with and I worked a combination strategy of speed and accuracy to pull this win off,” commented Eusebio.
The Team will return to Georgia to train and prepare for the USPSA Nationals. Shooting tips from the Team can be viewed on the GLOCK website at us.glock.com/confidence/university.

How much innovation can you fit in I.C.E. Training’s new personal defense holster?
Outdoor writer and gear guru Kevin Reese returns with his latest adventure in the conceal carry field
licensed to carry a concealed firearm, with a ridiculous number of hours of
handgun and shooting training over eight years of Marine Corps service and of
course, concealed-carry training under my belt, I thought I was well-equipped
for personal defense and survivability; I was wrong. I showed up to personal
defense expert, Rob Pincus’ two-day Combat Focus Shooting training with a
soft-sided outside the waistband (OWB) holster complete with Velcro strap, my
Glock 17 Generation 4 and 1,000 rounds of my personal favorite factory
ammunition, Federal’s American Eagle.
quickly as I walked onto the pistol range, Rob Pincus himself escorted me back to
the prep table. He didn’t smile or say much at all. He simply un-holstered my
handgun and asked me to remove my holster. As I removed my personal holster, he
handed me a new I.C.E. Range and Carry (RAC) Kydex Holster and instructed me to
put it on, re-holster and join the other students for the morning’s training
