Frostproof, Fla. —

Sgt. 1st Class Daniel Horner of the U.S. Army Reserve won his 11th U.S. Practical Shooting Association Tactical Division championship at the 2019 USPSA Multi-Gun Nationals held at the Universal Shooting Academy in Frostproof, FL April 3-7.

Horner recently took first at the 2019 All Army Small Arms Championship, is a member of the Army Reserve Careers Division and Marksmanship Program, and works for SIG-Sauer as his civilian job where he is a member of Team SIG, the company's professional shooting team.

At the Nationals, Horner secured his overall win by finishing first in three stages, with a second and third place on two others. He competed in Tactical Division where competitors use modified weapons that are similar to those issued to all Soldiers, such as an optically-sighted self-loading rifle (commonly an AR-15), a semi-automatic shotgun with an extended magazine, and high-capacity centerfire pistol. “Huge thanks to all the great people who put the match on and to my awesome teammate, Lena Miculek who won the Ladies Open Division,” said Horner.
