To claim the Tactical Optics Division National Champion title, Team SIG professional shooter Daniel Horner used the SIG SAUER P320X5 pistol with SIG SAUER Match Elite Pistol 9mm Competition Ammunition for the pistol stages.

Horner had previously competed as a soldier representing the U.S. Army’s Marksmanship Unit (USAMU).
“This win was particularly special to me because it was my first time competing at the USPSA Multi-Gun Nationals as a member of Team SIG,” began Horner. “Heading into the three day competition I had two goals, first to bring home a win for Team SIG, and second to showcase the elite performance of the wide range of SIG SAUER products. I am pleased that I achieved both goals and I will continue to prove through competition that SIG SAUER is the leader in the industry for firearms, optics, and ammunition.”
