WESTWOOD, Mass. (May 8, 2019) – Howard LeightTM, a leading provider of hearing and eye protection research, technology and products to shooting sports enthusiasts for over 25 years, is pleased to announce and welcome KC Eusebio as the newest member of the Howard Leight Shooting Sports Pro Team.
A world-class athlete, Eusebio began competitive shooting over 20 years ago at age 8. He has set a number of records within the United States Practical Shooting Association, none of which have been broken to date. He became the youngest Master class shooter at the age of 10 and the youngest Grand Master class shooter at 12. Continuing to set the bar high for himself and others, Eusebio won the World Speed Shooting Championships at the age of 15 – the youngest athlete ever to do so.
Since then, Eusebio has accomplished one remarkable feat after another. He is a five-time Open Overall World Speed Shooting Champion, a six-time Overall National Speed Shooting Champion, USPSA National Open Champion, Australasia IPSC Champion, a three-time US IPSC National Champion, and a three-time European Speed Shooting Champion. His titles from last year alone include 2018 World Speed Shooting Champion Open Overall, 2018 World Speed Shooting Champion Rimfire Optics, 2018 World Speed Shooting Champion PCC, 2018 US Steel National Champion Carry Optics, 2018 US Steel National Champion Rimfire Optics, and 2018 US Steel National Champion PCC.
Earlier this month, KC won the 2019 US Steel Nationals in the Carry Optics division and set a new national record in the process.
As a first-generation American, KC’s patriotism and love of country led him to enlist in the United States Army, where he joined the elite Army Marksmanship Unit shooting team. Here, he further honed his abilities while teaching hundreds of other soldiers the advanced marksmanship skills that would consistently help complete their missions.
While KC’s love for competition has helped deliver a successful career, his passion for sharing his sport has led him back to teaching. Eusebio is the co-founder of META Group International, a firearms training company based in Atlanta, where he provides world-class training and instruction to military, law enforcement, and civilians.
“Training others is a true passion of mine,” Eusebio says. “I’ve shot competitively for 24 years, so teaching and instructing is a way for me to give back. My purpose on earth is to share my knowledge and help others become more prepared in case they ever need to protect themselves and their family.”
As a Howard Leight Pro Team Member, KC will continue to compete exclusively in Howard Leight hearing and eye protection products, while providing valuable feedback and assisting with research and development of new products. He will help promote Howard Leight products by assisting in the creation of brand content and by making appearances at trade shows and other special events.
“Whether shooting for fun, in competition, while hunting or when training for defense, safety is critical,” Eusebio says. “I’m thrilled to be partnering with Howard Leight, a company I trust that has done so much important research that translates to great products that help protect shooters’ sight and hearing.”
KC’s next match is the US World Speed Shooting Championships at the Talladega Marksmanship Park on May 15, 2019.
