June 21 : 2011 Mr. Revolver, Jerry Miculek Wins USPSA Area 5 Regional Title
SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. - The man who is the face of revolver shooting in America - and probably the world - Jerry Miculek of Princeton, La. won the Revolver division title at the U.S. Practical Shooting Association's Area 5 Regional Handgun Championship.
Miculek, who shoots for the Smith & Wesson shooting team, won seven stages and outpaced the defending champ, Matt Griffin of Louisville, Ky., by 54 points with his final score of 1421.5422 points.
"Nobody runs a revolver like Jerry Miculek and beating him in competition is probably the single most challenging task in the sport of practical shooting. That's why it was no surprise to see his name atop the leader board at the conclusion of the Area 5 Championship," said Gary Stevens, the USPSA Area 5 director.
Griffin finished second with a final score of 1367.3229 points and four stage wins. Third place went to Mike Carmoney of Mitchellville, Iowa who won one stage and finished with 1302.7398.
