Bushnell’s KC Eusebio Sweeps U.S. Steel Nationals with New RXM-300 Reflex Sight

Thursday, April 13th, 2023

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – April 12, 2023 – Bushnell®, an industry leader in performance optics, congratulates pro shooter KC Eusebio for his recent win at the U.S. Steel Nationals, which took place in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Eusebio took first place in the Open Division and First Overall using the new Bushnell RXM-300 Reflex Sight.

Eusebio, who worked with Bushnell on the design of the RXM-300, was successful in winning his first major match of the year using the new reflex sight. With its extra-large lens, multiple intensity adjustments and robust housing, the RXM-300 is perfectly suited for the fast-paced style of the steel shooting competition.

“Being able to win a national championship so early in the year is a fantastic feeling,” Eusebio said. “Add to it, winning for the first time with the new Bushnell red dot makes this title even better.”

Introduced earlier this year, the RXM-300 is a versatile, large lens, 4 MOA red dot with optimized hood geometry for faster target acquisition and shot follow-up without sacrificing durability. That not only makes it the perfect competition sight for pro shooters like Eusebio, but also makes it a great option for carry, home defense and hunting.

“The RXM-300 did its job and performed at the highest level,” added Eusebio. “I’m so very proud of this new dot that I can’t stop sharing it with anyone who shoots or competes. By far, my favorite features are the unbelievable field of view it offers, the 12 brightness settings and the incredibly durable housing.”

Blackhawk’s Zach Rodman Takes Second at New Mexico Tactical Games

Monday, March 20th, 2023

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – March 17, 2023 – Blackhawk®, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, congratulates tactical athlete Zach Rodman for his second-place finish at the Tactical Games 2023 New Mexico Regional event. Rodman, competing in the Men’s Elite Division, secured the podium finish despite inclement weather that hindered competitors at the NRA Whittington Center in Raton, New Mexico.

Rodman, a 15-year veteran of the Kokomo, Indiana, police force and SWAT team, ran Blackhawk’s T-Series® L3D holster and Foundation Series Tac Nylon gear throughout the event, including plate carrier, belt and pouches.

“New Mexico was a blast, and a really challenging environment,” said Rodman. “Having gear that’s minimalist in design was a real advantage, especially during the 2-mile run that included a 100- to 500-yard rifle stage. It is great to have light, low-profile gear that doesn’t hinder complicated movements, so I can focus on the competition.”

Blackhawk’s T-Series holsters with leg straps are optimally designed to maintain proper holster position and security as competitors navigate unconventional obstacles throughout the Tactical Games. Foundation Series Tac Nylon gear gives competitors some of the lightest weight gear in its class without sacrificing durability or modularity, which is critical to maintaining speed and endurance while wearing plate carriers.

Rodman’s next competition will be April 15-16 at the Tactical Games South Carolina Team event at The SawMill Training Complex in Laurens, South Carolina. Rodman will once again be competing with teammate Jared Halbert, with whom he placed second during The Tactical Games Panthera West Virginia Team competition.

I enjoy the test it places on an individual’s physical preparedness, and I look forward to sharing with others my personal journey this season.”

For 2023, Blackhawk will serve as Platinum Sponsor for The Tactical Games. Attracting some of the best professional and amateur tactical athletes nationwide, The Tactical Games have become a proving ground for the latest in cutting-edge tactical gear. The games’ intense physical nature and marksmanship tests require efficient gear setups that prioritize firearm security, retention and accessibility as well as comfort and weight – all tenants at the center of Blackhawk’s designs.
