Team Bushnell Tactical Captain George Gardner (pictured above, second from left) has won the first K&M Precision Southeastern Shooter’s Challenge of 2017. In addition, Team Bushnell Tactical’s newest member Bryan Sikes (third from left) placed fourth at this Precision Rifle Series (PRS) Club Series event.

The Southeastern Shooter’s Challenge, held in Finger, TN, is a one-day match intended for both veterans and novices. The course of fire includes disciplines from across the law enforcement, military and practical marksman spectrums. Competitive shooters face engagements from 50 to 1000 yards with an assortment of steel, reactive, paper and automated moving targets. Target sizes vary in difficulty based on the shooter’s position, distance and time allotted. Most of the stages include stressors—such as a time limit and/or movement.

Gardner, who is president of custom rifle manufacturer GA Precision, beat out 96 other shooters while testing and developing a new scope for the Bushnell Elite Tactical line of optics. His elite skills, coupled with Bushnell’s proven ED Prime glass and superior reticle configuration, allowed Gardner to pick apart a course filled with challenging engagements.

“I’ve been shooting Bushnell Elite Tactical since the DMR debuted nearly 10 years ago,” Gardner said. “There is no better glass," he added.
