Team Beretta Excels at 2022 USPSA Carry Optic Nationals

Accokeek, MD -- Team Beretta shooter JJ Racaza recently placed second overall and first in the Grand Master division at the 2022 USPSA Carry Optic Nationals held at CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park in Talladega, AL.

Team Beretta members in attendance at the 2022 USPSA Carry Optic Nationals included JJ Racaza, Jessica Hook, Ben Hardt, and Lynda Turnbull.

“When competing to be the best, I have to make sure all angles are covered. I train my mindset, physical self, and emotional state,” JJ Racaza, Team Beretta athlete, said. “Then I make sure to surround myself with the right equipment I trust and to allow me to perform at my best. Although I didn’t take home the title again this year, I was proud of how I handled adversity and fought back to the top, slightly coming in short of winning the title. Thanks to Beretta for giving me a great platform that allows me to take my performance to the next level.”

Featured at the event was the brand-new Beretta 92X Performance Carry Optic - the newest evolution of the 92X Performance family. The 92X Performance family was designed in collaboration with the world's highest-level competitive shooters to have out-of-the-box optimized performance and consistency. The new 92X Performance Carry Optic model retains the same ergonomics and features of the popular 92X Performance platform with a red dot optic-ready slide, included optic plates, and improved trigger performance.

Compliant with the USPSA (United States Pistol Shooting Association) Carry Optic division regulations, the 92X Performance Carry Optic provides an uncompromising performance aimed at earning you a spot at the top of the podium with power, speed, and accuracy.

Team Beretta athletes will continue their season at the upcoming 2022 IDPA National Championship Presented by Beretta, held at the Cameo Shooting and Education Complex in Palisade, Colorado, from September 22-24, 2022.
