Walther Shows Up USPSA Optics Nationals

Hwansik Kim showed up big at Optics Nationals, he finished 2nd to Max Michel running his Q5. Less than 1 percentage point over 20 stages to one of the best shooters in the world? Pretty darn impressive shooter, and pretty impressive statement for Walther that the PPQ, in the hands of skilled shooter, can be a pretty special gun.

He has been shooting CZs for a while, switched to the Q5 to get paid. It ain't the arrow, that Indian has been practicing his ass off the last couple years and would likely put up a similar performance shooting a HiPoint.

We're here at the USPSA Rock Island Armory 3 Gun Nationals and so far the only Walther shooters. We'll see every gun that comes through since we are working Stage 7 so I'll let you know. Walther is not paying for this match of course but heck, these are our preferred 3 gun Pistol for TACTICAL division. I shot my 5" PPQ and he shot his Q5. Used Taran Tactical +4 basepads to give us 21 rounds. Results are posted here daily until match is over on Sunday. https://practiscore.com/results/new/34465
