Safariland’s CADRE is off to a winning start.
Jacksonville, Florida – Safariland®, a brand of The Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, today announced that Safariland CADRE member Julie Golob won First Place in the women’s division at the Flagler Cup, an NRA Action Pistol regional match held at the Pioneer Gun Club in Bates City, MO.
“It’s so great to be back on the shooting circuit after my last match in 2019,” Golob said. “Pioneer Gun Club has an incredible Action Pistol facility, and this match serves as an excellent warm up for the Bianchi Cup. I love the back-to-back format of being able to compete in a regional event right before the nationals.”
The Flager Cup is an Action Pistol match held annually, the weekend before the NRA Bianchi Cup, and draws top competitors including members of the US Army Marksmanship Unit, Department of Homeland Security, US Border Patrol, industry teams and professional shooters.
With a perfect score of a 1920, 192x, the match features four, 48 shot events — Barricade, Plates, Practical and Moving Target. Competitors engage targets as close as 10 yards and as far as 50 yards, all with a handgun. To clinch the win Golob dropped just one 8 in the Moving Target event, shotting from the 10, 15, 20 and 25 yard lines.
“The Mover is such a challenging event. It’s also one of my favorites,” she added. “With a target moving across the range at 10 feet per second, your trigger control needs to sync perfectly with tracking the target. I was extremely pleased to have just one shot outside the 10-ring.”
Golob competed in the Open Division with her Smith & Wesson 9mm 1911, Trijicon MRO, Safariland ELS Belt with Model 014 holster and 776 pouch with Federal Premium ammunition components and Caldwell, Tipton and Wheeler gear. She finished the match with a score of 1906, 153x.
