GLOCK Selects Michelle Viscusi to Compete With Team GLOCK for 2013 Practical Shooting Season

Smyrna, GA — October 16, 2012 —

GLOCK, Inc. today announced its selection of Michelle Viscusi, the 22-year-old Gilbert, Ariz., resident, to join the handgun manufacturer's Practical Shooting ensemble, Team GLOCK. Viscusi, who was featured on the Season 4 hit series TOP SHOT and is currently an active member of the Arizona National Guard, will join Team GLOCK competitors KC Eusebio, three-time Steel Challenge National Champion and Junior shooting Tori Nonaka.

Along with other international female shooters, Viscusi was evaluated during the 2012 season and scored high marks for her grasp of the sport with little competitive training or experience. Working with Eusebio, Viscusi made great strides in her "on the field" performances in United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) and International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) matches around the country.

"This has been a dream of mine since my father took my family to the range and taught us the basics of shooting handguns," stated Viscusi. "It wasn't until I entered the National Guard that I began to shoot competitively. I am very excited about being the newest member of Team GLOCK."

Viscusi will make her debut with teammate Eusebio in Mesa, AZ on November 7, 2012, for the USPSA Rio Salado Desert Classic Area Championship and finish out the season in Caguas, Puerto Rico, on December 12, 2012, competing in the International Practical Shooting Federation (IPSC)Puerto Rico Nationals.
