Jessie Abbate 3-Peats as USPSA Limited National Champ

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Three is a perfect number, at least for Jessie Abbate who this past weekend won the U.S. Practical Shooting Association’s Women’s Limited National Championship for the third year in a row.

After finishing second in the earlier Open division contest, Abbate, who shoots for sponsors Leupold and Atlanta Arms & Ammo, adjusted her approach.

“Coming into the Limited match, I decided that I had to be aggressive, I had to shoot my sights and let those be my speedometer,” said Abbate.

“This is a very hard match, especially for iron sights. There are more partial targets here than I’ve ever seen and I knew I had to be accurate. I had to be patient and let my sights tell me what to do.”

That patience paid off as Abbate won 11 of the 18 stages in the match to post a final score of 1173.5946, placing her 60th overall in a field of 225 shooters.

Abbate credits much of her performance to her increased 2010 competition schedule that focused on the Open division.

“I felt like I shot a better match with my limited gun. I’ve been shooting mostly Open this year so and I’ve brought some things over from my open shooting to limited that have helped me a lot. Lots of speed, more shooting on the move and being a more aggressive shooter overall has helped me a lot more in the Limited division,” explained Abbate.
