If pro shooter and Second Amendment ambassador Jessie Harrison doesn't have a nickname yet, we have a suggestion: Jessie the Unstoppable! Harrison is the first female shooter to achieve Grand Master status with the USPSA. She boasts an impressive list of accolades across five shooting disciplines, including multiple World and National Champion shooting titles, including the prestigious Bianchi Cup and the World Speed Shooting Championships. Her latest first-place win in the Ladies Open Division at the U.S. Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) Area 3 Championship has women who shoot wondering: What gear does Jessie the Unstoppable use?
Naturally, the pro shooter sponsored by Bushnell and Hoppes' used their products to help secure her win. Harrison took first place in the Ladies Open Division shooting Bushnell’s First Strike 2.0 Reflex Sight. Reflex sights are a tremendous boon to shooters regardless of your reasons for shooting, but they're especially useful for practical shooting competitions.
As our friends at NRA Family have noted, "Instead of aligning sights as you would with a traditional handgun or rifle you simply raise the firearm, align the red dot on the desired point of impact, and so long as you're zeroed for that distance the bullet will strike where the dot is being aimed. The dot makes it easy to see the POI even in low light, and it’s very fast. Those are two reasons why both competition shooters and law enforcement professionals choose reflex sights. When getting on target quickly is a priority, it’s difficult to beat a reflex sight."
The First Strike 2.0 is extremely versatile and allows users to quickly find their targets. It includes a Picatinny mount with high and low rise, and is at home on both shotguns and flat-top MSRs. It can also be fitted to customized Open Class pistols. It features an industry-leading battery life that lasts up to 50,000 hours, with tool-less side compartment battery removal and a bright 3-MOA dot.
Harrison calls the First Strike 2.0 “the perfect optic for the Open Division, allowing me to see a clear, crisp dot and giving me the flexibility to adjust it as match conditions change.”
Hoppe’s also played a key role in Harrison’s winning performance. Hoppe’s Black is a high-performance line of cleaners and lubes designed specifically for the needs of modern shooters. The formulations in the Hoppe’s Black line deliver maximum performance in high-round count, gas-operated firearms such as pistols and modern sporting rifles.
“Before a match I always give my gun a full cleaning, using Hoppe’s Black cleaning line,” she explained. “This gives me a chance to inspect and make sure everything is in working order and I love the feel of a clean crisp gun on match day!”
