The following is a press release from Safariland
Safariland congratulates Team Safariland member Julie Golob on defending her title as the USPSA Area 7 Ladies Production Champion, and her placement of 21st overall among 296 competitors at the 2016 USPSA Area 7 Championships held July 9-10 in Augusta, Maine.
Golob is no stranger to USPSA competitions as the first and only six Division USPAS National Champion. Impressively, she was the top lady competitor in nine of the 10 stages, including battling through 220 rounds.
Golob competed using the Safariland® ELS system with a 5198 Holster and 771 magazine pouches for her S&W Performance Center M&P Pro Series and Federal Premium American Eagle 147, as well as Trijicon sights.
“The USPSA Area 7 Championships marks my first USPSA major of the year in the Production Division after top performances at the Revolver and Classic Nationals,” said Golob. “My rig set up for Single Stack and Production is identical, which makes the transition from division to division seamless. I’m so happy to defend my Area 7 Ladies Production Title!”
Team Safariland members are an integral part of the company’s product development process by regularly testing Safariland materials and products to ensure design and development. This collaboration ensures the best performance possible for law enforcement and military in the field and Team Safariland at competitions.
