Bob Vogel of Team Safariland Wins SSP Class Title at 2012 IDPA Carolina Cup

June 29, 2012
Ontario, CA

ONTARIO, California – Safariland®, a BAE Systems line of business, is pleased to announce that Distinguished Master Class shooter, Bob Vogel, the newest addition to Team Safariland, won the 2012 IDPA Carolina Cup, SSP division. This match, held June 12-16 at The Range in Oxford, N.C., is one of the largest venues next to the IDPA Nationals. This is Vogel’s second Carolina Cup Championship win and on average, he was two seconds faster per stage than the next closest SSP shooter.

The Carolina Cup ran 359 total competitors through 18 challenging stages with a round count of 213+. “Going into the first day I had a rough start. I dropped a total of 14 points and hit a non-threat target. I knew I had to pick up my game in order to dominate the match on day 2, which I did. I only dropped four points and that was enough for the win.”

Vogel competes in IDPA competition with a Safariland Model 5189 Open Top Belt Clip Holster with Detent, Model 073 Magazine Holders and Model 032 ELS belts. Bob uses this equipment for ESP, SSP and CDP divisions. “As a shooter and industry professional I demand a lot out of my gear. With Safariland I feel confident that my gear will perform flawlessly.”

"Bob is a great addition to Team Safariland, joining us early in 2012. Bob continues to dominate the sport using Safariland equipment, and we’re pleased to have him support our product development efforts," said Team Captain and Vice President Scott Carnahan. “All of us at Safariland congratulate Bob Vogel and Team Safariland for a fantastic start to the new season."
