The field of 139 shooters participated in the first USPSPA Multigun Nationals held in two years. Federal Ammunition was the presenting sponsor.
“Josh Froelich is an intense competitor and his excellent finish in a stacked field of competitors proved that. Konnor Fryburger also put forth a tremendous performance,” said Jason Spradling, Federal’s shooting sports promotions manager.
One of Team Federal’s newest members, the aforementioned Konnor Fryburger placed second in the Limited division with a score of 681.35. He is only 17 years old.
“This year’s Multigun Nationals was a fast-paced, fun match with almost no room for error on stages without losing points,” said Fryburger. “I really appreciate the effort from USPSA to make the rules more accommodating for 3-gunners, it allows the match to have a more relaxed and fun atmosphere.”
