Competitive Shooting Daniel Horner Joins Team Sig Sauer Dave Merrill October 9, 2018 Join the Conversation Sig Sauer announced today that Daniel Horner has joined its professional shooting team– Team SIG. Horner recently separated from the U.S. Army, where he had been part of the Army Marksmanship Unit as a member of the Action Shooting Team. Horner's 12-year stint in the USAMU serves as a solid foundation to continue to compete at the highest level as a member of Team SIG. In a press release, Sig Sauer said: Legendary U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit Shooter Daniel Horner Joins Team SIG NEWINGTON, N.H., (October 9, 2018) – SIG SAUER Inc., is pleased to announce multi-discipline World Champion Shooter Daniel Horner has officially joined the SIG SAUER Professional Shooting Team – Team SIG. Horner recently left the service of the U.S. Army where he rose to the rank of Sergeant First Class. He was recruited into the Army to join the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) where he became one of the most decorated shooters in team history, and served as the Coach of the USAMU Action Shooting Team. “I started shooting at six years old when I would go to the range with my Dad. When I was twelve years old I shot my first IDPA match, at sixteen I won my first IDPA national title, and at eighteen I enlisted in the U.S. Army to join the AMU,” began Horner. “For basically my entire life I have been shooting competitively, and for as long as I can remember it’s been a lifelong goal of mine to shoot professionally. To have this opportunity to represent industry leader SIG SAUER and join Team SIG is really a dream come true and I can’t wait to start working with the company and competing.” Horner is a 3-gun shooter and will compete primarily in multi-gun matches, and long-range rifle competition as a member of Team SIG. In competition Horner will use a P320 X-Five full-size pistol with iron sights, an M400 SDI Comp rifle with a TANGO6 1-6x24mm second focal plane riflescope, and a KILO2400ABS. Horner will also use a variety of SIG SAUER Ammunition during competition including: 9mm Match Elite Competition, 223 REM Elite Match Grade, and 223 REM Varmint and Predator. “We are thrilled to bring Daniel to Team SIG to join forces with Max and Lena as they compete for SIG SAUER. His record as a 3-gun shooter is truly remarkable and is a direct result of his hard work and dedication to the sport,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales. “Daniel is also a man of exceptional character and will be an outstanding ambassador for the SIG SAUER brand and role model for the next generation of professional shooters.” Horner’s first competition on behalf of Team SIG will be the SIG SAUER Fort Benning Multi-Gun Challenge at Krilling Ranges Thursday, November 15th – Sunday, November 18th in Fort Benning, Georgia. “I am excited about Daniel joining Lena and I on Team SIG and we welcome him to the team,” added Team SIG Captain Max Michel. “I worked with Daniel for several years at the AMU and I got to see first-hand exactly what makes him a championship shooter. He works hard, he’s focused, and he does whatever it takes to accomplish his goals. Daniel is going to bring a lot of wins to Team SIG and he will be a great teammate as we represent the SIG brand together. I look forward to watching his future on the professional shooting circuit unfold.” To learn more about Daniel Horner, and Team SIG visit: https://www.sigsauer.com/company/team-sig/ and danielhorner.com Explore RECOILweb:Happy EntrepreNewYear: Meglio Knives - Artistry in CutleryThe Art of the Beat DownBox Mag Fed Shotguns: Sorting Out ScattergunsThe New Glock 45 Leaked... and It's Not A .45 ACP ...
