Randi Rogers Ruger Pro Shooter

With over 60 World and National Championship competitive shooting wins, Team Ruger's Randi Rogers is one accomplished competitive shooter! As of May 9, 2021, she has another trophy to display on what must be some extremely crowded shelves: her High Lady win at the 2021 USPSA LOCAP Nationals. Held at the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) Marksmanship Park in Talladega, Alabama, the match saw Rogers facing down 20 stages and over 400 fellow competitors.

USPSA may be a tongue-twister of an acronym, but it represents a shooting discipline that's growing in popularity. That's because the "PS" part stands for "practical shooting," which is as much fun as it is practical. The U.S. Practical Shooting Association explains it best, saying, "You may remember that in the original Dirty Harry movie, Clint Eastwood's character visits a training center and walks down the street of a mock city engaging hostile targets and while identifying and sparing innocents. A lot of us saw it too, and thought, 'cool!' It looked like too much fun to be just the law enforcement work of qualifying with a handgun."

Rogers, of course, is no "Dirty Harry," but she shoots like one with her Ruger. Rogers took the top ladies' spot in the Single Stack division of the LOCAP nationals, demonstrating her speed and accuracy with a final score of 1602.23. What did she use? Her Ruger Custom Shop SR1911 Competition chambered in 9mm Luger.

"LOCAP Nationals was one of the toughest matches that I have shot in a long time," said Rogers. "But it was certainly made easier by shooting my Ruger Custom Shop SR1911 Competition because I can trust its reliability and accuracy. Each and every shot was right where I expected it to be and that let me focus on my footwork, reloads and keeping my stage plans straight."

Congratulations, Randi, from all of us at NRA Women!
