NEWINGTON, N.H., (November 26, 2019) – SIG SAUER, Inc. congratulates Team SIG professional shooter Daniel Horner for defending his first place title for the second year in a row, at the 2019 SIG SAUER Fort Benning Multi-Gun Nationals. Horner’s impressive performance yielded him the “Tactical Optics Champion” title.
“It’s great to watch Daniel’s professional shooting career continue to develop, and we are especially proud to see him defend this title, as a member of Team SIG, at the premier match hosted by the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit where he spent his military career as a member and captain of the team,” said Tom Taylor Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “Since officially joining Team SIG, Daniel has put his equipment through the paces. His competition experience and feedback has been integral to the continued refinement of the P320 pistol and ongoing development of the SIG SAUER rifle, optics and ammunition product lines.”
To defend his title at the 2019 SIG SAUER Fort Benning Multi-Gun Challenge Horner competed through 12 stages, against 285 competitors. The competition required at least three firearms (pistol, rifle, shotgun) to compete and targets throughout the stages ranged from 2 – 250 yards. For pistol competition Horner used his P320 XFIVE LEGION pistol with iron sights and SIG 9mm Match Elite Competition Ammunition. For long-range competition Horner used his SIG SAUER M400 Competition rifle with a SIG SAUER Electro-Optics TANGO6T riflescope, 223 REM SIG Elite Match Competition Ammunition and a SIG KILO2400ABS Rangefinder.
“This is by far my favorite match of the season to shoot because I get to compete on my home turf, and experience the stages developed by the AMU as a professional competitor,” said Daniel Horner. “In the pistol competition the infallible accuracy and reliability of my P320 XFIVE gave me the edge I needed to win these stages, and in the rifle competition the SIG system consisting of the SIG rifle, optic, and ammo gave me a clear advantage over the competition for long-range targets.”
