HK Launches First Competitive Pro Shooting Team

back to newsroom

Columbus, GA — Heckler & Koch-USA announced today the launch of the new HK Pro ShootingTeam. The move marks HK’s first entry into the competitive shooting sports organized by the USPSA (United States Practical Shooting Association) and related sport shooting groups.

“We’re excited as this is our first major involvement in competitive shooting in the USA at this level,” said Mark Osborne, HK’s Director of Sales. “HK Germany has a European-based team but this is an opportunity for HK-USA and our American team to showcase what they can do.”

“One major advantage we have is that the HK guns our team members use don’t require much in the way of modification or tuning. Our team will be using their P30L pistols pretty much right out of the box.”

The team members will make their national debut at the U.S. Steel Nationals. The team will also participate at the NRA Bianchi Cup, Steel Challenge World, USPSA Nationals, and a number of state competitions. The team will be shooting standard production-grade HK P30L models as their primary competitive pistols.

About the Team Members

K.C. Eusebio:
Eusebio began his shooting career at the age of 8, traveling and training with his father. By age 10, Eusebio became the youngest Master in the history of USPSA and continued on to become the youngest Grand Master by age 12; a record that stands to this day. After winning the World Speed Shooting Championship at the age of 15, the shooting world took notice. Upon graduating from high school, Eusebio was recruited by the Army to become a member of the prestigious U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit.

Eusebio’s 2010 shooting season was stellar by anyone’s measure. After winning the U.S. Steel Nationals, World Speed Shooting Championship, and USPSA Open Nationals, Eusebio is well positioned to become one of the most successful shooters in the sport.

Jason Koon:
Koon came to competitive shooting after a background competing in archery and bull riding. Starting as a junior shooter, he quickly became one of the top five shooters in the U.S. His methodical, accuracy-based approach allowed him to master competitive bulls eye shooting which ultimately helped him transition into action pistol shooting. Koon holds several national records and is a frequent winner of national, regional, and state shooting championships across multiple types of shooting. Koon is notable in his ability to compete in many different shooting sports at a high level.

Koon will serve as team captain. Outside of shooting, Koon is an avid runner, enjoys boxing and Jiu Jitsu, and spending time with his family.
