Top-ranked professional shooter and Taurus USA team captain Jessie Harrison-Duff racked up another win at the 2017 USPSA Iron Sights Nationals, which concluded earlier this month at the Southern Utah Shooting Sports Park in St. George, UT. In the Limited Division, Duff was able to secure an eighth Ladies National Championship in a crowded field of over 250 fellow Limited competitors. No stranger to the winners podium, this victory adds to Duff’s already-impressive list of shooting accomplishments—a total of 20 USPSA Ladies National Championship wins.
The USPSA Iron Sights Nationals featured 15 unique, challenging stages. Duff’s best performance was on stage seven the “Brick Yard,” a 30-round stage where shooters begin facing downrange with their pistol holstered and hands on marks, then engage four USP and 13 metric targets.
“Through the continued support of loved ones during preparation and training, I was able to add my 20th USPSA Ladies National Title to the list,” Duff said regarding her latest accomplishments in the shooting sports. “I train long and hard but the rewards are worthwhile. I cannot express enough the gratitude I have towards my friends, family and especially my Taurus family who make this all possible.”
Duff is a multiple World and National Championship winner in several different action shooting disciplines. She’s a four-time NRA Bianchi Cup Women’s Champion, and won High Overall Lady at the 2017 World Speed Shooting Championship. Duff has also ranked highly in countless Regional and State Championships. Earlier this year, she represented our country in France at IPSC World Shoot XVIII, earning an individual silver medal as a member of the gold medal-winning Ladies Open U.S. team.
“Jessie continues to train hard and represent our brand with integrity and a competitive spirit,” said Vince Abrams, Taurus USA’s senior marketing manager. “She is a positive role model for other shooters and is always willing to teach firearms safety and provide quick shooting tips to those around her.”
Duff’s next match will be at the Georgia State USPSA Championships in November at the South River Gun Club in Covington, GA. Visit her website: www.jessieduff.net.
