How exciting! USPSA President Michael Voigt announced the members of the Team USA last week and stated the following on the USPSA website.
“I would like extend my sincere appreciation to all the talented shooters that applied to represent USPSA at World Shoot XVI. Selecting the final team roster was difficult, due the extremely talented pool of applicants and having just four slots per team. The selections are based on performance, experience, sportsmanship, individual and team preferences. I join the more than 19,000 members of USPSA in congratulating those named to these USPSA teams, and again thank all the talented shooters that applied for a spot on Team USA. Your commitment, obvious pride and desire to represent the U.S. is awesome!” – Michael Voigt

Team Smith & Wesson is WELL represented in four divisions: Kay Miculek – Women’s Open, Jerry Miculek – Revolver, Phil Strader – Production and I made the Women’s Production Team. Team Safariland can also boast a great turn out with eight shooters. Rob Leatham, Mike Voigt and Barry Dueck made the Modified Team. Randi Rogers is representing in Standard.
