North Haven, CT - Mossberg congratulates world-renowned competitive shooter, Jerry Miculek, and his equally-talented daughter, Lena Miculek, on their recent wins at the 2012 IPSC Shotgun World Championship held at the Apafa Shooting Range in Debrecen, Hungary. Shooting his namesake autoloader, the Mossberg 930 JM Pro Series, Jerry won the Open Senior Championship and finished fifth overall in the Open Match. Lena won the 30-stage Standard Lady Match, claiming her first major championship, while shooting her own personalized version of the JM Pro 930 autoloader. Lena, age 17, was coached throughout the match by her mother, Kay Miculek, who is also an accomplished shooter and world-record champion.
"On behalf of the entire Mossberg team, we want to extend our congratulations to Jerry and Lena for their accomplishments at the World Championships," commented Tom Taylor, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "As a parent, I can imagine the pride that both Jerry and Kay must have felt while watching Lena take the highest honor in the Ladies' Standard Match." Taylor continued, "The Miculeks are considered by many as one of the world's best competitive shooting dynasties. However, there is no question that Jerry, Kay and Lena are incredible ambassadors for shooting sports."
Jerry Miculek teamed up with Mossberg in October 2010 and began to rack up championships with the Mossberg 930 autoloading shotgun. Working closely with Jerry, Mossberg introduced the 930 JM Pro signature shotguns in early 2012 - a series of reliable, gas-operating 12-gauge autoloaders designed and built for the demands of a competitive shooter.
