Daniel Horner: Running SIG Guns
To claim his first match win, Horner competed through 12 stages, against 247 competitors, shooting 547 rounds in 553 seconds. The competition required at least three firearms (pistol, rifle, shotgun) to compete. Targets throughout the stages ranged from 2 to 250 yards. For long-range competition Horner used his M400 Competition rife, Electro-Optics TANGO6 riflescope, and .223 REM SIG Elite Match Competition Ammunition. A KILO2400ABS Rangefinder complimented the rifle kit. For pistol competition Horner used his P320 XFIVE pistol with iron sights and SIG 9mm Match Elite Competition Ammunition.
“It was very exciting to compete for the first time as a member of Team SIG, and to compete alongside my teammate Lena Miculek was a huge help in stage planning and gear preparation,” added Horner. “In rifle competition the combination of all my SIG equipment really gave me a massive advantage over the competition on any long range or low percentage targets. In pistol competition the handling and accuracy of my P320 XFIVE provided me the edge I needed to win the pistol stage against everyone in the competition including the open pistols that were allowed red dot sights and compensators.”
Horner’s equipment includes the TANGO6 riflescope, KILO2400ABS Rangefinder, .223REM SIG Elite Match Competition Ammunition, and 9MM SIG Match Elite Competition Ammunition.
