SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (March 28, 2016) — Team Smith & Wesson’s Jerry and Kay Miculek scored wins at the Missouri 3-Gun Championship in Versailles, Missouri last weekend. Jerry Miculek won High Senior in the Open Division with a score of 92.47 percent, finishing second overall. Kay Miculek won High Lady in the Open Division with a score of 59.50 percent. Jerry and Kay both shot the Smith & Wesson® Performance Center® M&P®9 Pro Series® C.O.R.E.™ (Competition Optics Ready Equipment) pistol and the M&P®15 rifle during the competition.
The Missouri 3-Gun Championship featured a field of 210 shooters from around the world who participated in the 10-stage, two-day event. The match consisted of shooting on the move, challenging positions, walls, ports, roof top, vehicles, barricades and rifle out to 600 yards.
The weather made it a real test of endurance,” said Jerry Miculek. “It was cold, overcast and windy and we were in the field from 7 am – 6 pm. It took a lot of discipline and perseverance to stay focused on the match, but we managed to do just that and our Smith & Wesson firearms performed flawlessly, as usual.
The Smith & Wesson Performance Center M&P9 Pro Series C.O.R.E. (Competition Optics Ready Equipment) pistol model used by Jerry and Kay Miculek comes equipped with an adjustable trigger stop to reduce over travel, as well as a Performance Center sear for a more positive trigger reset and lighter trigger pull. The M&P15 rifle comes standard with a forged upper and lower receiver constructed of 7075 T6 aluminum, forged integral trigger guard, chromed firing pin for extended life, M4 feed ramp for reliable feeding, and an Armonite® barrel finish for corrosion resistant durability.
Team Smith & Wesson members next compete the weekend of April 8-10 at the Texas 3-Gun Championship in Marble Falls, Texas and the Iron Outlaw Steel Match in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
