Shooting Sports: World Class Speed

KC Eusebio Earns Seventh World Speed Shooting Championship Title

WESTWOOD, Mass. (October 6, 2020) – Competition shooting phenom, KC Eusebio, has earned a remarkable seventh Open Overall World Speed Shooting Championship title.

The unprecedented feat took place at Talladega Marksmanship Park on September 27 at the 2020 World Speed Shooting Championships. In addition to the overall win, Eusebio took first place in the Carry Optics and .22 Rimfire Pistol events, competing with his ZEV KC OZ9, Limcat 2011 and Volquartsen Scorpion pistols and Howard Leight ImpactTM Sport hearing protection.

“The World Speed Shooting Championships has always been important to me,” says Eusebio, a world-class athlete who started competing in the match at the age 9 and has set a number of records within the United States Practical Shooting Association in the 20 years since.

Eusebio became the youngest Master Class shooter at the age of 10 and the youngest Grand Master class shooter at 12. Continuing to set the bar high for himself and others, Eusebio won the World Speed Shooting Championships at the age of 15 – the youngest athlete ever to do so.

“Last weekend, I was able to take home my Seventh World Speed Shooting title in Open; it’s a great feeling to earn this coveted title amongst such a remarkably talented field of competitors,” Eusebio adds. 

“Howard Leight has been protecting my hearing and helping support me in competition for the last few seasons and I can’t thank them enough,” the world champion says. “The Impact Sport electronic earmuff has been my earmuff of choice for over a decade, as it is for thousands of other recreational and competitive shooters around the globe. The new Honor Collection One Nation® pattern allows me to proudly showcase my patriotism and love of this country during competition,” the first-generation American and U.S. Army veteran says. “My Impact Sport Honor Collection electronic hearing protection not only helps me hear the report of the steel targets better, but also protects my hearing from the loud concussion of my pistol. Thank you Howard Leight!”

KC’s next match is the USPSA Carry Optics and Open Nationals at Frostproof, Florida, October 18-25, 2020.
