Harrison was quick to credit her gear for her continued dominance in competition this year.

"It's important to trust in your equipment, and I use Hoppe's before, during and after a match to make sure my guns are in racing condition," she remarked, adding, "I really look forward to the rest of the season with Hoppe’s by my side!"

She also had this to say on her Facebook page the day after the match:

"Thank you to Taurus USA for supporting the event as title sponsor, all other match sponsors, and my sponsors who continue to support me! Next match on the schedule is the Steel Challenge World Championships in May, who's going?!"
