Team GLOCK Competitor KC Eusebio Wins the Jamaican Invitational Pistol Tournament

Smyrna, GA — April 11, 2013 —

Eusebio named Overall Champion of his first competition in Kingston, Jamaica

Today GLOCK, Inc. announced that Team GLOCK’s team captain KC Eusebio won the 2013 Jamaican Invitational Pistol Tournament (JIPT) on April 6, 2013 in Kingston, Jamaica. Eusebio continued his advancement toward a perfect international record for 2013 after his win in New Zealand’s Australasia International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) Handgun Competition earlier this year.

Using his GLOCK 34 pistol prepared by ZEV Technology to win first place overall, Eusebio participated as a guest of GLOCK’s Jamaican distributors, A&A and SASCO. Eusebio developed new relationships in the shooting sports network on the island nation that is quickly embracing the values and responsibilities of competitive shooting.

“The JIPT was one of the most challenging matches I’ve shot this year,” stated Eusebio. “From uncomfortable shooting positions to the extremely fast activating targets, I had to be on my game to execute. I literally had to do a ‘jump shot’ out of the shooting area to win the match. I loved hearing the crowd roar in excitement from my performance. The match staff did a great job running the competition, and I would like to thank them all for their hospitality.”

The next competition for Team GLOCK is the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) Area 6 match, where Team GLOCK teammates Tori Nonaka and Michelle Viscusi will join Eusebio to compete at the Ancient City Shooting Range in St. Augustine, Fla., April 19-21, 2013.
