NEWINGTON, N.H., (November 23, 2021) – SIG SAUER, Inc. congratulates Team SIG professional shooter Daniel Horner for defending his first-place title at the 2021 SIG SAUER Fort Benning Multi-Gun Nationals. Horner’s impressive performance earned him the overall title of “Tactical Optics Champion.”
“First and foremost, it’s great to see this match return to the competition schedule. The U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit has made the Fort Benning multi-gun the premier 3-gun match of the season and SIG SAUER is honored to be the title sponsor,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales, SIG SAUER, Inc. “We are especially proud that for 2021, Team SIG’s Daniel Horner, and former AMU Team Captain, returned to successfully defend his title as Tactical Optics Champion. This win provided him the perfect opportunity, and proving ground, to set the stage for the upcoming commercial launch of his DH3 M400 competition rifle which he has been thoughtfully refining feature by feature since he joined Team SIG.”
To defend his title at the 2021 SIG SAUER Fort Benning Multi-Gun Challenge Horner competed through 9 stages, against 148 competitors. The competition required three firearms (pistol, rifle, shotgun) to compete and targets throughout the stages ranged from 2 – 400 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 DH3 M400 Competition rifle (soon to be commercially available) with a SIG SAUER Electro-Optics TANGO6T riflescope, 223 REM SIG Elite Match Competition Ammunition and SIG KILO10K-ABS HD range-finding binoculars.
“The Fort Benning Multi-Gun match is always my favorite of the season because I get to return to the AMU as a professional competitor and have my shooting skills, physical agility, and mental mindset challenged. This year’s field of competitors were hungry for the win, and it was a battle for first place right through to the last stage,” said Daniel Horner. “In the pistol stages, the accuracy and reliability of my P320 XFIVE LEGION gave me the clear edge over the competition, and in the rifle stages my SIG system consisting of the rifle, optic, and ammo provided me with the precision I needed for long-range targets.”
The SIG SAUER equipment used by Team SIG Pro Shooter Daniel Horner including the SIG SAUER Electro-Optics TANGO6T riflescope, SIG KILO10K-ABS HD rangefinding binoculars, 223REM SIG Elite Match Competition Ammunition and 9MM SIG Match Elite Competition Ammunition can be purchased online at sigsauer.com or retailers everywhere.
