WATCH: Daniel Horner Wins All-Army Championship with M17 Pistol

Recommended Posts

SIG Sauer recently announced  that Team SIG shooter, U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Daniel Horner, claimed multiple first place finishes at the 2019 U.S. Army Small Arms Championship. Moreover, the event, hosted by the Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU), Horner’s former unit, took place at Fort Benning, Georgia.

Horner placed first in the Multi-Gun Competition, National Match Rifle Course of Fire and took the Overall Individual Match Champion. Horner also competed as a member of the Army Reserves Career Division (ARCD) Team that won the Overall Team Championship.

The All Army Championship is week of non-stop, sun-up to sun-down competition of 400 scored rounds using U.S. Army issued equipment, including the U.S. Army’s M17 pistol. Additionally, the competition is only open to Active Army, Army Reserves, U.S. Army National Guard, Military Academy, College ROTC Cadets, and OCS candidates. Further, Horner is currently enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserves.

“Daniel’s win at the 2019 All Army Championship is a very meaningful win on many fronts,” began Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales. “First, this was Daniel’s first win to kick-off his 2019 competitive shooting season for Team SIG, and we are very proud of his accomplishment. Second, this was the first issuing of the M17 pistol by the Army for competition, and to have Daniel, shooting on behalf of the US. Army Reserves, win using the issued M17 pistol, makes it a very memorable win that will certainly be marked in SIG’s history.”

Horner Dominates With M17 Pistol

To claim his multiple first places finishes Horner fired the National Match Course of Fire for both pistol and rifle competition, multiple team and individual matches, and the culminating event of multi-gun competition, designed to simulate combat-style shooting on a course of fire that is weighted for both accuracy and speed. Finally, pistol shots were fired at targets from 7-50 yards using the M17 pistol, and rifle shots were fired from 7-500 yards.

“The 2019 All Army Championship was an extremely challenging competition that tested both my shooting skills and my endurance. It was an honor to be one of the first competitors to run the U.S. Army’s newly issued M17 pistol in competition, and it was very satisfying to use it to win the match,” added Daniel Horner, Team SIG professional shooter . “The pistol ran absolutely flawlessly and was extremely accurate. Everyone on my team commented that they shot better with the M17, and that the pistols performance contributed to our victory. I also utilized the 21-round magazines to gain an advantage over the handful of competitors that were still using the M9 pistol which definitely worked in my favor.”

Above all, Horner is widely regraded as the top 3-Gun competitor in the world. Moreover, he’s the winner of four 3-Gun Nation Championships, several USPSA Multi-Gun Nationals and countless other national titles. Horner attained those titles as a member of the vaunted AMU. Meanwhile, last year Horner transitioned into the Army Reserves and signed on with Team SIG

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
