Newington, N.H. –-(Ammoland.com)- SIG SAUER, Inc. congratulates Team SIG Captain, Max Michel, on continuing his award-winning 2018 competitive shooting season at the U.S. Steel National Championship. Michel took home the grand prize of overall Main Match National Champion at the 2018 U.S. Steel National Championship in Covington, Georgia, March 28th through the 31st. Additionally Michel took second place in the carry optics division, and third place in the rimfire division.
To claim the 2018 National Championship title Michel completed eight courses of fire, with five steel targets ranging in size and distances, in 78.28 seconds using a 9mm SIG SAUER 1911 outfitted with a SIG ROMEO3 optic. “With limited time to train for this event I decided to enter into three divisions. I felt shooting in the rimfire and carry optics divisions gave me the opportunity to get into the match mindset leading up to the overall main event,” said Max Michel on his 2018 U.S. Steel National Championship performance. “My strategy proved to be effective. While my score in the overall event wasn’t my fastest, I was very happy with the way I battled mentally to bring this title to SIG SAUER.”
The 2018 title is Michel’s sixth overall main match U.S. Steel National Championship title. Team SIG Captain Michel also owns seven World Speed Shooting Championships, and is the “most-winning” action shooter in steel challenge history. “We are extremely proud of Team SIG Captain Max Michel and his accomplishments. His commitment to his sport is exemplary of the SIG SAUER brand and our mission – to never settle for our past successes. Together, Max and SIG SAUER will continue to set the bar in both sport and industry,” added Tom Taylor, chief marketing officer and executive
