The legendary Jerry Miculek earned top honors at the 2015 Trijicon Shooting Challenge, winning a $50,000 grand prize. This year’s match, held October 21-24 at the Rockcastle Shooting Center, turned out to be a family affair — Jerry’s talented daughter Lena Miculek won the 2015 Womens’ Title. Todd Jarrett finished second overall, while Tim Yackley secured the Junior Division title.

and Prizes Were Awarded

The 2015 Trijicon Challenge was a rich event. Shooters competed for over $100,000 in match cash, and over $200,000 in prize table awards. Some 180 professional and amateur competitive shooters from around the world traveled to the Rockcastle Shooting Center in Kentucky to compete.

This grueling event featured three days of action shooting in evenly weighted disciplines, with pistol, rifle, shotgun and combined arm segments. All firearms and ammunition were provided for the competitors, leveling the playing field.

With top five finishes in the final six stages of competition, Jerry Miculek showed the skills (and speed) that have made him one of the greatest action shooters in history. Jerry out-shot some very skilled competitors, including recently-crowned NRA World Shooting Championship winner Bruce Piatt, who finished sixth overall. Todd Jarrett took second, and Greg Jordan finished third. Rounding out the Top 5 were Tony Holmes (fourth) and BJ Norris (fifth).

Miculek Celebrates by Carving a Pumpkin with a Barrett .50 BMG
To celebrate his recent Trijicon Challenge victory, Jerry Miculek decided to do some pumpkin carving — with a .50 BMG Barrett Rifle.

Shooting the 30-lb rifle off-hand, Jerry blasted some serious holes in Mr. Pumpkin. Needless to say, the results were dramatic, if somewhat messy. Advancing the science of terminal ballistics, Jerry (not surprisingly) confirmed that “the 663-grain bullet did manage to penetrate the pumpkin all the way.” Thanks Jerry!
