Sig Sauer throws down a $25,000 gauntlet in ‘The 365 Challenge’ (VIDEO)

Sig Sauer issues “The 365 Challenge” featuring a $25,000 grand prize set to take place during the 2018 USPSA Speed Shooting Championship in Alabama June 15-June 17.

Sig Sauer says any participant with a qualifying time lower than Sig Sauer’s Pistol Product Manager Phil Strader’s fastest center-fire match time with a stock P365 will win a $2,500 cash prize. The one participant with the lowest qualifying time that beats professional shooter Max Michel’s center-fire match time will win the whole she-bang to include a $25,000 grand prize. Michel will use his standard competition equipment in Open and Carry Optics.

Shooters are required to use a Sig Sauer P365 pistol, Sig Sauer 365 FMJ ammunition and a Comp-Tac International Holster. Equipment will be supplied on site at no additional charge but must be returned following completion of the challenge.

“Come one, come all and I challenge you to compete against Max and I in The 365 Challenge,” said Strader in a news release. “Seriously, I am looking forward to this event and competing with some of the greatest shooters across the country with the Sig Sauer Everyday Carry P365 pistol. I believe in the performance of this firearm and I know that when put to the test, it can compete with any full-size competition pistol. This is precisely why I issued The 365 Challenge.”
