Soldier Represents Army Reserve at Florida Championship Event

Lt. Col. Thomas Koh, currently assigned to the National Capital Region Cyber Protection Center (335th Signal Command (Theater), represented the Army Reserve at his own expense by competing in the Florida Sectional Championship at the Volusia County Gun & Hunt Club located in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. This two-day event was a major match held under the auspices of the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA), a primary organizer of action shooting events in the United States.

The Florida Sectional Championship consisted of ten individual stages with a total round count of 300 shots for record. The challenging action stages included eleven activated swinging targets, set in motion when a select steel target was knocked down. As with all USPSA events, each stage was timed electronically to a hundredth of a second (0.01 seconds) with the elapsed time factored into the earned points shot on the targets.

The match included international shooters, including teams from South America, as well as shooters from Range Project Group International (RPGi). RPGi is a training and shooting services company owned and operated by members of the United States Special Operations Forces community.

“This match was a great balance of speed and discipline. Seven of the ten stages had swinging targets that appeared after hitting a steel activator. Three of the steel activators actually revealed two paper targets.” Lt. Col. Koh said. “These technical stages rewarded a moderately aggressive stage plan and a discipline to stick to it, even if you had to wait a fraction of a second for the activations.”

All Army Reserve Soldiers and units are authorized and encouraged to participate in or host marksmanship events. Units can start with no-cost events such as the World-wide Chief, Army Reserve Postal Matches, Excellence-In-Competition events and more by downloading the Army Reserve Course of Fire Book at https://www.usar.army.mil/ARM .
