WEST HARTFORD, CT– Colt congratulates Team Colt shooter Maggie Reese on taking first place over the weekend at the USPSA Multi-Gun Nationals, winning the Lady's Open division. The match was held April 24-26 at the Desert Sportsman Rifle and Pistol Club in Las Vegas, NV.
"We are inspired by Maggie's success on the national competitive shooting stage," said Paul Spitale, Senior Vice President of Commercial Business for Colt's Manufacturing Company. "This is an event where Maggie continues to shine. Her win this weekend was an exiting one for Team Colt."

"We shot 12 stages over the course of 3 days," said Reese. "We had sun, high winds, even a little rain, plus lots of dust and dirt. Throughout it all my Colt 6920 ran flawlessly!"
