20,000 rounds in a month! That's more Ammo then I shot during my heaviest train up year in 2012....

BJ Norris took home a long list of titles from the World Speed Shooting Championship. The match took place May 4th-6th, at the Hogue Action Pistol Range in San Luis Obispo, CA.

BJ placed 1st in the Open, Limited, Single Stack, and Production divisions. He placed 3rd in the Rimfire Optic Pistol division and 11th in PCC. Bj's aggregate total of Rimfire, Limited, and Open put him in 1st place as the 2017 Steel Master. To top off a great performance, BJ also set a new world record in the Limited division with a total time of 79.39 seconds. BJ is the first person to ever break 80 seconds with an iron sighted gun in a Steel Challenge.

We had an opportunity to chat with BJ after the match. We were curious as to what it was like to shoot 6 different divisions in a World match:

"This year was a unique schedule opportunity that allowed me to compete in more divisions than prior years. I knew it was going to be a challenge to stay mentally focused for that much time. With a lot of training and using high-quality equipment, I was able to stay on top of my mental management to put together a string of winning performances." -BJ Norris

We also asked BJ what it takes to become a Steel Master and World Record setter:

"I worked really hard this year. I was at the range before and after work most weekdays and ended up shooting about 20,000 rounds in the month leading up to the match. Putting in the work is always the great equalizing factor in competition, and is something totally within your control. Thankfully, I knew my Wilson Combat pistols can easily stand-up to this level of training intensity, so I was able to enter match day with total confidence in both my ability and equipment." -BJ Norris
