Jessie Harrison’s long track record of success in competitive shooting continues, as the Team Taurus captain recently claimed her 13th first-place finish at the 2021 World Speeding Shooting Championships, one of the most competitive and prestigious handgun competitions in the world. Harrison took the Ladies Overall Open World Championship title and first place in the Lady Open Division.

Harrison, the first female shooter to achieve Grand Master status with the USPSA, boasts a long list of accolades across five shooting disciplines, including multiple World and National Champion shooting titles.

In addition to her division wins in the last championship, which took place April 15-18 at Talladega, Alabama, Harrison also set two new Ladies stage records in the Single Stack Division. On the "5 to Go" stage, Harrison sent a record time of 12.52 seconds, and on "Outer Limits," she recorded a stage best 16.27 seconds. Harrison was the current record holder on both stages of fire entering the 2021 championship. 

And while we know that it’s the talent, skill and dedication that are the main contributors to her roster of wins, we at NRA Women are always interested to know more about the gear behind the girl! Harrison is well-known for her exceptional handling of her Taurus PT 1911 pistol—which she loads with Hornady 9 mm 115-gr. HAP bullets—but the champion has high praise for some of the other gear that that she attributes to her success on the competitive shooting circuit. For instance, Harrison says her Bushnell First Strike 2.0 reflex sight helped her deliver an overall time of 93.03 seconds.

“Competing in the World Speed Shooting Championships never gets old and neither does shooting with the Bushnell FS2,” said Harrison. “Throughout the match I never had to worry about getting a clear view through the lens and the dot is always nice and crisp, allowing you to make that precise shot. Visual speed is one of the most important factors and the Bushnell First Strike 2.0 gives me that and more.”

Harrison also noted that Hoppe’s Black cleaning spray, Elite gun oil and Lead-B-Gone wipes were also part of her cleaning arsenal on one of the shooting sports biggest stages.

While we know it won't be long before we are reporting on yet another victory for this seemingly unstoppable champion, check out Harrison's Facebook fan page for more on her favorite gear that keeps her at the top of the scoreboard.
