Shooting Sports News: KC Eusebio Earns Ninth World Championship Title

Howard Leight Pro Wins Open Division and Overall Handgun Titles at 2022 Steel Challenge World Speed Shooting Championship

CANTON, MA – May 6, 2022 – Fresh from his recent Open Division win and High Overall finish at the 2022 USPSA Area Championship, shooting phenom, KC Eusebio, has earned an unprecedented ninth World Speed Shooting Championship title. Eusebio posted an aggregate time of 10.78 seconds in his Open Division win, while also earning the Overall Handgun title.

The remarkable accomplishment took place at Alabama’s Talladega Marksmanship Park, April 27 – May 1 at the 2022 Steel Challenge World Speed Shooting Championship presented by the Practical Shooting Association. See the complete results here.

“It feels incredible to be the first to win nine World Speed Shooting titles,” Eusebio says. “Once again, Howard Leight had my back by having my ears. Speed Shooting consists of all steel targets and one shot is often the difference between winning and losing. My Impact Sport electronic earmuffs have saved me so many times in my career – not only by protecting my hearing – but because they allow me to differentiate a hit or miss with a simple audio queue that can go unnoticed without the amplification these muffs provide. Whether I’m competing or hunting, I’m always protecting my ears while never missing everything that’s going on around me with my Impact Sports. A big thank you to the Howard Leight Team for making hearing-protection products that I can trust and for all the support they’ve extended to me over the years.”

A world-class athlete, Eusebio began competitive shooting over 25 years ago at age 8. He has set a number of records within the United States Practical Shooting Association, none of which have been broken to date. He became the youngest Master shooter at the age of 10 and the youngest Grand Master shooter at 12. Continuing to set the bar high for himself and others, Eusebio won the World Speed Shooting Championships at the age of 15 – the youngest athlete ever to do so.

As a first-generation American, KC’s patriotism and love of country led him to enlist in the United States Army, where he joined the elite Army Marksmanship Unit shooting team. Here, he further honed his abilities while teaching hundreds of other soldiers the advanced marksmanship skills that would consistently help complete their missions.

While his love for competition has helped deliver a successful career, Eusebio’s passion for sharing his sport has led him back to teaching. He co-founded MetaGroup, a firearms training company based in Atlanta, with World Champion shooter, Jessie Harrison, where the duo provides world-class training and instruction to military, law enforcement, and civilians.

“Training others is a true passion of mine,” Eusebio says. “I’ve shot competitively for over 25 years, so teaching and instructing is a way for me to give back. My purpose on earth is to share my knowledge and help others become more prepared in case they ever need to protect themselves and their family.”

Eusebio’s next match is the 2022 Dragon Cup in Odessa, Texas, May 13-14.
