Tyler's B.J. Norris wins two world speed shooting titles

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

23-year-old B.J. Norris successfully defended his Steel Master Division Title and took home the Iron Sight Pistol Division Title at the 2012 Steel Challenge World Speed Shooting Championships, held Nov. 1 - 4 in Frostproof, Fla.

"This match definitely had a different feel to it," Norris said when asked about the venue change from the California desert, "Up until this year, the match had been held in southern California for over 25 years, so the staff and target presentation was totally different in Central Florida."

The Steel Master title is the combined aggregate for a competitor's score from three separate events, each requiring a competitor to use different equipment. The first event for is always the Rimfire event, where competitors use .22 LR pistols, generally fitted with a red dot optic sight.

With his Iron Sight Pistol win B.J. is the first shooter to claim all four major titles at the Steel Challenge World Speed Shooting Championships.  "I'd like to thank all of the staff, shooters and sponsors for making the match possible," said Norris, "Without all of the support crew at the Universal Shooting Academy and SCSA, this match wouldn't have been possible."
