The following is a press release from Taurus

Taurus® Team Captain Jessie Duff returned to the Pro-Am Championships ready to prove herself once again after making her first appearance at this match a few years ago. The Pro-Am Championships were held July 18th and 19th at the Universal Shooting Academy in Frostproof, Florida. This prestigious event brought about an exciting weekend full of talented shooters.

The goal of the event is to take down as many targets during the specified par time and every target shot after the par time deducts a point from the shooter’s final score. Duff moved swiftly through all nine stages of the competition, accurately making hits with her Taurus 1911 single stack 9mm.

“The Pro-Am is always one of my favorite matches,” said Duff. “It combines USPSA and Steel challenge, making for a very exciting and challenging match! The stages allow for multiple ways to be shot and you can play each one to your strengths and weaknesses.”

Duff also competed in the Hornady Area 3 Championships this past weekend. Her undeniable talent earned her the Ladies Open title and a 7th place overall finish. A Video of Jessie in action at the match is available on the Taurus Facebook page. Duff will carry this momentum right into the Production Nationals which are taking place August 5th-9th in Barry, Illinois.
