ONTARIO, California – Safariland congratulates Team Safariland member Rob Leatham for winning the 2015 Western States Single Stack Championship (WSSSC) title in the Single Stack Championship and defending his 2014 Western States Relvolver Championship (WSRC) title in the Revolver Championship both held in Mesa, Arizona on November 12-15, 2015.

Leatham is beyond thrilled to have won the 2015 WSSSC title. This well-designed and perfect-weather match is one of Leatham’s favorite competitions of the year. “I look forward to the 50-yard standard exercise each year and really appreciate that the match Director, Steve Horsman, and stage designers have kept it well-organized and maintained its tradition.”

The tightly-contested WSSSC title has been won and lost over the years by a mere handful of points. This year, Leatham had just one miss penalty and one no-shoot penalty, landing him at the top of the leader board for the first time since 2007. “Top of the line equipment, from my belt, holster and mag pouches to a finely tuned pistol, has a tremendous amount to do with each and every one of my wins. It’s something that I never have to think twice about, and allows me to focus on my shooting,” stated Leatham.

At the back-to-back Western States Revolver Championship, Leatham, defended his 2014 WSRC title, winning by more than 120 points. Leatham won six of the 12 stages and finished among the top five in the remaining six stages in the match. Leatham has won the WSRC all three years, since its inception in 2013.

“Shooting a revolver match is a challenge and can be hard on the ego. Most of us at the WSRC usually compete in other (semi-auto) divisions. We are used to having more rounds, lighter triggers, much faster times and sub two-second reloads. I have a lot of respect for my fellow competitiors who have worked hard on their revolver skills and shown dramatic improvement. Cross training with this type of event should pay off by making you a better shooter all around,” said Leatham.
