Congratulations to Matt Mink, and Matt Hopkins of the CZ-USA Shooting Team for their performance with their CZ 75 SP-01 handguns at the 2011 USPSA Championships Oct 8-16th in Las Vegas. Matt Mink took second overall in production, while Matt Hopkins took 13th overall and was the highest scoring A class shooter in Production division.
Other shooters finding success while shooting CZ handguns included John France (High Senior in Production division) and Jordan Ohlmann (Third Place, A Class Production division). Congratulations go out to John and Jordan as well.
Angus wasn't able to make it to the Nationals this year due to a last minute change in his schedule. Next he is shooting the AustralAsia IPSC Championships and we wish him luck there.
The SP-01 was designed as a sidearm for law enforcement, but due to it's great handling and the reliability of the 75 platform, it has seen great success in competition as well. Among many other championships, it was used by Adam Tyc of the CZ Shooting Team to win 2 World Championships in IPSC, and by Angus Hobdell to take the shootoffs at the last IPSC World Shoot.
The Fox station in Kansas City did a piece on Matt Hopkins as he was preparing to leave for Nationals. Matt Hopkins spends his weekends at IPSC matches and his days in the CZ-USA customer service department. Click Here to check out the video.
