Smyrna, GA — (gunsandtactics.com) -– GLOCK, Inc. announced Monday that KC Eusebio has joined GLOCK’s shooting team. The three-time World Speed Shooting Champion and former United States Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) team member will continue his quest for a fourth World Speed title as a member of Team GLOCK.
Eusebio will join fellow teammate and renowned junior female shooter Tori Nonaka on Team GLOCK. Like Nonaka, Eusebio was introduced to shooting by his father and began shooting competitively at the age of 8. Quickly, Eusebio rose to Master class in two short years. By the age of 12 he was, and remains, the youngest competitor in the world to earn the ranking as a Grand Master class shooter. At 15, he became the youngest shooter to win a world championship at the prestigious World Speed Shooting Championships Steel Challenge. One of eight competitors ever to earn the USPSA Open National Title, Eusebio also boasts three Steel National Titles.
Upon high school graduation, Eusebio joined the United States Army and was immediately assigned to the USAMU. Honing his skills during his competitive shooting around the globe, his additional assignments included the training of troops in firearms marksmanship, one of the many mandates of the USAMU.
“Growing up, I remember sitting in my father’s garage, using a GLOCK Armorers’ Mat to clean our guns, while surrounded by GLOCK posters on the walls,” said Eusebio. “I was amazed at how impressive they looked, and now here I am, getting to shoot and work for that same, great company. I truly feel blessed to be honored with this opportunity.”
“We were immediately impressed with KC’s skill and abilities that he has perfected during his short career,” stated GLOCK, Inc. Vice President, Gary Fletcher. “He has an extremely energetic personality. Being an accomplished competitor, an experienced leader and a trainer for the USAMU made him a great fit for our organization.”
In addition to joining the GLOCK shooting team, KC also assumes the day-to-day responsibilities as a GLOCK training instructor.
