Taurus Shooting Team Captain Jessie Harrison captured a big win at the recent USPSA Area 3 Championship held Aug. 2 in Grand Island, Neb. Harrison, one of the world’s top-ranked women shooters, swept the Ladies Open Division for a first-place win, and placing 16th overall in the Open Division from a field of 65 competitors. 

“It felt great to be traveling and competing again," said Harrison. "I haven’t shot a match since November 2019. Covid-19 has affected everyone’s life. Being able to bring home a championship win for Taurus and all my sponsors made for a great first match back!”

Harrison said Area 3, a physically challenging match with big round-count stages featuring numerous obstacles at each stage, many of which the shooter must interact with or manipulate while shooting, is one of her favorite matches. “They put a lot of creative thought and effort into designing a match that will not only challenge the shooter but also give them a fun experience at the same time,” she said.

This year's match included jumping over barrels, shooting from a balance beam, and activating targets with an 8-lb. shot put.
