Top results of KAHLES shooters at the World Field Target Championship 2017

From September 19th to 23rd the World Field Target Championship 2017 has taken place in Wales / United Kingdom. More than 300 sport shooters from all over the world have competed to find the “best of the best”. KAHLES is very proud to pronounce that three KAHLES K1050i FT shooters finished among the top ten shooters in the world championship.

 

2nd place overall ladies, Ms. Lauren Parsons from South Africa

„I participated in the European Championships first and then did the World Championships. This has been the most competitive Field Target shooting on a trip I have ever done. On top of all that, it has been the toughest conditions that I have ever experienced. The rain, wind, humidity and cold was really difficult and I had no way to pre-pare for this, but every shot I felt like I was learning something new. The part that really stood out for me was seeing all my friends from abroad, and of course making many new ones. Never miss the Mo-ment you know“.

 

3rd place spring gun ladies, Mrs. Luciana Pereira da Silveira from Brazil

„I got really happy with my results at the worlds this year, only 2 months and I made 3rd place with my new scope Kahles K1050i FT. The place was amazing and I got really happy to meet old and new friends.

Next year promises...“

 

7th place overall, Mr. Sergio Arman from Spain

„The trust in my equipment and myself was what made me to enjoy in the competition and get a very good score. An amazing championship!“

 

Many others KAHLES shooters are listed in the complete competition list as well and here are a few more comments:

 

23rd place spring gun, Mr. Frank Esser from Germany

„The competitions in Wales with my KAHLES K1050i FT was a great success and the scope was perfect from start to finish. I never felt so confident to join a competition with any other scope“.

 

77th place overall, Mr. Reghardt van Jaarsveld from South Africa

„Worlds 2017 was held in beautiful Wales under challenging weather conditions. I was worried about scope ranging shifts as the temp and light varied considerably during the three days. I didn't range any target at 50m and checked with my fellow competitors who stated that allot of the targets they have ranged at 50m. The ranges were released the day after Worlds and not a single target was at the max of 50m.“

 

KAHLES congratulates all shooters and the hosts for the successful event and we are looking forward to a great World Field Target Championship 2018 in Poland.
