“The Adaptive Shooting Summit is a fantastic event that brings together industry manufacturers and organizations across the firearms industry to host the premier competition for competitive shooters with disabilities. The match continues to grow and has proved to be a success in attracting new shooters to the sport. This year’s competition was fierce, and the challenging course of fire tested the marksmanship skills of every competitor in low light, close quarter, and concealed carry scenarios, that was great to watch as they progressed from stage to stage. Congratulations to all the competitors and top finishers at this year’s match.”
