Shooting is a fragile, learned skill that starts with knowledgeable training, and it needs to be maintained by frequent practice. In addition to visiting the range to reinforce fundamentals and refresh muscle memory, a shooter should learn from the experience of others, including professionals. What if you could learn from those who not only shoot frequently but also do so under competitive pressure? It’s time to meet Team GLOCK.

Team GLOCK is composed of shooters who use the best pistols in the world, GLOCKs, and are well experienced in keeping on target when under time pressure and while being watched by sometimes thousands of spectators. They have developed the mix of the right gear, correct grip and stance, but most importantly, a winning mindset to become the pistol champions that they are.

Champion Roster

Tori Nonaka and team captain K.C. Eusebio have competed and won in both national and international pistol competitions. Recently, at the 2012 Pro-Am competition, a nine-stage match held at the Universal Shooting Academy in Frostproof, FL, Tori earned Amateur High Lady, Amateur High Junior, second place in “A” Classification and eighth overall in Amateur Open, scoring highest among all female competitors.

Eusebio earned top honors in his first Steel Challenge Shooting Association (SCSA) match of the 2012 season. He used a customized GLOCK 17 during the Open Division of the 10th Annual World Class Steel “Speed on Steel” match to take high overall and first in open centerfire pistol. K.C. said, “the match meant a lot to me, knowing several of my most fierce competitors were aiming for first place.” Eusebio also admitted, “I had a rough start but held my composure to ensure my first steel challenge victory with my Open GLOCK.” The competition included seven stages over the weekend event.

At the recent 2012 International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) Level III Summer Fun Championship held in Kingston, Ontario, Tori Nonaka earned Second Lady shooting her GLOCK G35 in the Standard division and eighth overall out of 51 competitors. However, before the 5th Annual Pro-Am, where Tori shot with the country’s best competitive pistol marksmen in the blazing-hot Florida sun, she took the time to reinforce the fundamentals of successful shooting. She verified her equipment was competition-ready and repeatedly walked through the course of fire for each stage, simulating everything from the sight picture, reloading, and even where to place each step between shooting positions. As a champion, she knows that preparation is the key to winning.

During an interview at the range, Tori mentioned, “Before each match, I make sure my gear is ready, that my GLOCK is locked down and ready to go.” She went on to say, “The key is to be prepared as much as you can to reduce what can go wrong. I test my magazines and make sure my sights are lined up, so when I shoot steel I know where each round will hit every time!”
