SDI-Sponsored Eusebio Wins at the 2016 Steel Challenge, Sets World Record
Sonoran Desert Institute (SDI) congratulates world speed shooting champion KC Eusebio for winning the 2016 Steel Challenge World Speed Shooting Championships and setting a new world record.
The event gathered competitors all over the world, from Australia to Japan. The competition was recently held at the Hogue Range in San Luis Obispo, Calif., and sponsored by the San Luis Obispo Sportsmen’s Association (SLOSA). Eusebio won the Carry Optics division with an overall time of 83.25 seconds — a new world record — and he won by more than six seconds using his Zev Tech carry optics pistol.
“SDI was essential in my victory to secure the prestigious title,” says Eusebio. “Without SDI’s support, I wouldn’t have been able to achieve my dreams. It’s an honor representing a first of its kind school.”
Well-known for his performance on the Hot Shots TV-series, Eusebio is an International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) and United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) member and Steel Challenge action shooting competitor. He was named the youngest USPSA Master at the age of 10, and he is a four-time Open World Steel Challenge Speed Shooting Champion and four-time Open U.S. National Steel Challenge Speed Shooting Champion.
“KC is as one of the best shooters of our time, and we congratulate him an amazing victory,” says SDI Vice President Wes LeMay. “Our sponsorship of K.C. gives SDI new and unique opportunities to educate people about the benefits of attending SDI as well as to develop a greater appreciation for firearm education.”
