Maria Gushchina Champion of the Far East!

Between 17th and 22nd September, Pattaya in Thailand hosted the Far East Asia IPSC Handgun Championship 2018. Maria Gushchina gave a superb performance and beat all the shooters in the Production Division, winning the gold medal.

In total, 460 shooters from all over the world took part in the Far East Asia Championship, competing in 24 shooting stages. The factory Shooting Team from Česká zbrojovka a.s. performed extremely well in this competition.

Maria Gushchina achieved excellent results in the Production Division. With her CZ Shadow 2 pistol, she managed to beat 16 women and 123 men in the overall score, thus winning the gold medal and becoming the Far East Asia Champion. “It was great to return to the fantastic shooting range in Pattaya and once again take part in this highly challenging as well as interesting competition. I won this competition for the first time several years ago and even then, I longed to come back and repeat that performance again. My wish came true last weekend”, says Maria Gushchina, adding: “Winning wasn’t easy at all, as the competition was indeed very hard. The whole CZ Shooting Team, including me, felt under pressure throughout, especially with regard to the numerous metal targets.  In addition, it was extremely hot and we had to grapple with the time zone difference, which was considerable too. But I won, I managed to leave all the men in my division behind and I am very happy now.” Maria is looking forward to the upcoming events and the new challenges they bring.

In the Standard Division, with 85 participating shooters, Zdeněk Liehne achieved bronze with his CZ 75 Tactical Sports Orange pistol.

Robin Šebo took part in the Open Division instead of his usual Production Division. He proved his worth in this division as well, coming fourth from 144 shooters. The same place went to Martina Šerá, who came fourth in the Open Lady Division. They both used the CZ 75 Tactical Sports Czechmate pistols.

CZ would like to say many congratulations to all the winners and wish all the shooters the best of luck and a steady hand in all the other competitions of this season.

2018 Czech Championship in Hodonice

IPSC shooters from Zbrojovka dominated the Czech championship

On the first September weekend, the Czech IPSC shooting championship took place in Hodonice near Znojmo. The 190 participating shooters included successful members of the CZ Shooting Team.

The shooters took part in a total of 18 shooting situations. The first day of the competition was marred by unfavourable rainy weather. Robin Šebo managed to cope with the difficult conditions and became the champion of Czech Republic in the Production division despite a minor slip in situation 8. We witnessed excellent shooting also by the second-placed Michal Štěpán, who has shifted significantly over the last two years also in the world ranking and, at the World Championship in France in the autumn of last year, joined the world’s top ten.

Another successful participant was Petr Znamenáček, who placed second in the Standard division, slightly behind the final winner of this division Zdeněk Liehn. Josef Rakušan placed third.

Miroslav Havlíček completely dominated the Open division with a 10% lead, without missing a single target. The Open Lady division was easily won by Martina Šerá.

CZ shooters triumph in Canada

Between 13th and 18th August, Manitoba in Canada hosted the IPSC Canada National Championship. Amongst the 360 participants, there were three representatives from CZ: Marina Gushchina, Zdeněk Liehne and Robin Šebo.

The participants faced 18 shooting stages with targets placed at distances shorter than is the practice in European competitions, which allowed for faster and more dynamic performance. Compared to other world events, time was therefore more important in the scoring rather than points. Robin Šebo said of the event: “It was a great, American style competition which I really enjoy. The stages were fast and not too technical. We had to cope with warm weather and smog, as unfortunately, there were some fires in the area”.

All three representatives from Zbrojovka gained a place on the score sheet. Robin Šebo won a gold medal in the Production Division with his CZ Shadow 2 pistol, joined by Zdeněk Liehne with his CZ 75 SP-01 Shadow Orange winning a gold medal in the Standard Division. Both of them also shared first place in the Shoot Off. Despite some bad luck and difficulties at one of the stages, Marina Gushchina achieved a nice second place in the Open Lady Division with her CZ 75 TS Czechmate.

In addition to these shooters representing CZ in Manitoba, the company was also the main sponsor of the event, together with its Canadian partner, Wolverine Supplies.

Furthermore, members of the CZ Shooting Team did very well in other competitions. Between 25th and 26th August, the Geco Open took place in Debrecen, Hungary, where Michal Štěpán dominated the Production Division due to his excellent performance with the CZ Shadow 2.

Having returned from competitions abroad, the Zbrojovka’s IPSC shooters are currently preparing for another important event of the season, the Czech National Championship. It will take place on the first weekend in September in Hodonice, near Znojmo.

Gushchina, Šebo and Havlíček African Champions!

Between 10 and 15 July, the IPSC African Handgun Championships were held in Polokwane, Limpopo province, South Africa. Maria Gushchina, Robin Šebo and Miroslav Havlíček gave an outstanding performance with all three winning gold medals in their respective divisions.

The three shooters from the CZ Shooting Team who represented CZ in Polokwane showed that they are the world’s best. They each achieved the ultimate result – a place on the podium and a gold medal in their respective categories.

Robin Šebo triumphed in the Production Division, followed by Maria Gushchina who lost with a margin of less than 3 %. She not only won the Lady Division but left behind the rest of the men in the Production Division. Both shooters won their medals with the CZ Shadow 2 sport pistol which was included into the Production Division in 2017. Shooters may only use factory made models with open sights and no additional adjustments or modifications.

Miroslav Havlíček demonstrated his qualities in the Open Division achieving the best results and a well-deserved gold medal. He used the CZ 75 TS Czechmate pistol. There are no limitations on pistols in the Open Division, the participants may therefore use individually modified or specially built models. These weapons usually have collimator sights, extended magazines and muzzle climb compensators.

In addition, CZ operated a stand at the event where both the visitors and the shooters had a chance to inspect weapons from the CZ portfolio. Particularly this year’s new pistol model, the CZ Shadow 2 Optics Ready sport special, received a lot of attention.

CZ would like to say congratulations to the shooters for their excellent results and wish them the best success in the upcoming events.

Tomáš Staněk European Champion in Combined Game Shooting! Czech Shooter Wins with Czech Rifle

Between 29 June and 1 July, the 11th FITASC European Championship in Combined Game Shooting took place in Piancardato, Italy. The event, held at a beautiful shooting range 170 km north of Rome, saw Czech shooters and Czech weapons do their best. One of the shooters, Tomáš Staněk, a member of the CZ Shooting Team, gave a superb performance and became the European Champion.

The success of our Czech representatives is well deserved, as the competition was very strong indeed and the conditions were definitely not easy. Not only did the event host the best shooters from Europe but the temperatures stayed around 40°C.

The Championship consisted of two parts – a rifle event and a shotgun event, with the possible overall score of 800 points. The shotgun event was split into four parts with 100 points for each – two Compak sporting parts and two Universal trenches. In the rifle event, 20 were rounds shot at fixed targets (deer, fox, chamois and boar) and another 20 at three static targets (deer, fox and chamois). The highlight came with shooting at one moving target (wild boar) at a distance of 50 metres. This discipline is considered to be the most challenging in the whole competition as it is nearly always the one that decides the final ranking. In the rifle event, all the Czech shooters used the CZ 527 Varmint in .222 Remington calibre.

The best overall score was achieved by Tomáš Staněk from the CZ Shooting Team who was extremely delighted to become the new European Champion in combined game shooting, praising the Piancardato event: “I must say that this competition was the best European Championship I have ever experienced in my shooting career, the organizers did a marvellous job. I am overjoyed to have come out on top and beat some serious rivals. It is my dream come true.”

In the Women category, the gold medal went to another Czech shooter, Michaela Štenglová who also used the CZ 527 Varmint rifle.

The Czech national team and their CZ rifles were followed by the Austrians in second place and the Swedish team who came third. It is well worth mentioning that regarding game rifle shooting, the Czech representative team have been unrivalled for five years. This success has been significantly supported by the special variants of hunting rifles, developed especially for this purpose at CZ.

Combined game shooting is an attractive sport event based on general hunting practices. Its uniqueness, as the name suggests, lies in the combination of shotgun shooting at clay targets and rifle shooting at fixed paper targets or a running boar paper target. Both Czech shooters and Czech weapons have ranked at the European top for many years.

The overall results:

Men

  1. Tomáš Staněk (CZE), CZ Shooting Team, 779 points
  2. Helmut Rosskopf (AUT), 775 points
  3. Andras Varga (HUN), 775 points

Women

  1. Michaela Štenglová (CZE), 750 points
  2. Lina Laine (FIN), 741 points
  3. Christine Liebelt (GER), 659 points

Teams

  1. Czech Republic
  2. Austria

CZ Shooting Team triumphs with 6 medals at the CZ Extreme Euro Open 2018

Members of the CZ Shooting Team achieved superb results at the 10th CZ Extreme Euro Open which took place between 18 and 24 June at the shooting range in Hodonice near Znojmo. This event is one of the most important and also most challenging shooting competitions, with the largest number of participants from all over the world. This year, there were 1,128 shooters from 51 countries.

The CZ Extreme Euro Open is a Level III IPSC competition. This year’s contest was very well prepared. There were 30 interesting though challenging shooting stations. The competitors were able to shoot while moving, really savouring each of the stations. However, we are not able to control the weather just yet, so over the six days, everyone experienced a whole range of the elements, from hot rays of sunshine to clouds, wind and drops in temperature.

The PRODUCTION Division saw a very dramatic and very close duel between two members of the CZ Shooting Team, Ljubiša Momčilovič and Robin Šebo. Ljubiša missed just one target during the whole competition and scored one hit in the Delta zone. Robin went through the competition with no minus points but scored more Deltas. In the overall score, Ljubiša therefore beat Robin by a margin of less than 1% and won the gold medal. Another fantastic result in the Production Division was achieved by Michal Štěpán who came in fourth place.

In this division, all shooters from the CZ Shooting Team used the CZ Shadow 2 model.

The STANDARD Division was no less successful for the CZ Shooting Team, as Josef Rakušan and Zdeněk Liehne also swept into the lead, winning first and second places with their CZ 75 TS Orange pistols.  

In the OPEN Division, Miroslav Havlíček took the silver medal, losing out to the reigning World Champion, Jorge Ballesteros. Martina Šerá dominated the Open Division Lady category and returned home with a well-deserved gold medal. In the Open Division, the CZ Shooting Team members used the CZ 75 TS Czechmate.

It is a fact of life that even the best cannot always rely on things going smoothly, as Maria Gushchina could tell you. In this event, she was shooting in the Open Division but at station 12 she accidentally tripped and was subsequently disqualified for breaking the limit of the safety angle. One feels sorry for that but such things happen at times. At least Maria thus enabled her rivals in the Production Division to have a chance of winning, since she usually leaves the others well behind.

In teams, the first places in the Production Division went to the following CZ factory shooters: Momčilovič, Šebo and Štěpán, in the Standard Division to: Rakušan, Liehne, Znamenáček and Sioda (a Polish member of the CZ Shooting Team).

As is the tradition, the Sunday was reserved for the Super Six finale and the awards ceremony. The best shooters on the planet battled against each other in a riveting duel, witnessed not only by many of their fellow participants but also by scores of fans.

As a long-time partner and main sponsor of the CZ Extreme Euro Open, Česká zbrojovka a.s. would like to say a huge thank you to the organizers and the referees for their excellent hard work. Many thanks also goes to all the shooters that have taken part in this event over the past ten years.  Moreover, we would like to offer our heartfelt congratulations to the winners and wish them the best success in the other upcoming events.

Tomáš Staněk becomes the double champion of the Czech Republic

Two important shooting competitions organized under the patronage of Czech-Moravian Union of Gamekeepers took place at the weekend of 26 and 27 May 2018 at the Hvězda shooting range in Kotojedy near Kroměříž – a national Hunting Rifle Tetrathlon championship and a national Combined Hunting Shooting championship. Both these competitions were dominated by Tomáš Staněk, a shooter from the CZ Shooting Team, who won gold medals in both championships and became the Czech champion in both disciplines.

The national Hunting Rifle Tetrathlon championship organized by the Czech-Moravian Union of Gamekeepers took place on Saturday of May, 26. Every competitor fired five rounds at targets in sequence including a fox, roebuck, chamois and wild boar at the distance of 100 meters. The time limit in this competition is set at five minutes. Three shooters, Tomáš Staněk, Jindřich Mahel and Karel Kotrc achieved the same result in the final, when they got the same number of points in the main competition – 199. Each of them lost a single point on the last target, when shooting at a wild boar. It was followed by a shoot-out, which determined the final ranking of the shooters. This thrilling duel saw Tomáš Staněk with his CZ 527 Varmint rifle in calibre .222 Remington achieve the highest number of points, 49, from all participants, beating by a very narrow margin the second in ranking, Jindřich Mahel with 47 points. Unfortunately, Karel Kotrc was accidentally shooting at a neighbouring target and, therefore, his result achieved in the final shoot-out did not count in the final ranking, and he ended up third.

The national Combined Hunting Shooting championship organized by the Czech-Moravian Union of Gamekeepers took place at the Hvězda shooting range in Kotojedy on Sunday of May, 27. The combined hunting shooting competitions consist of two parts, one with a rifle and the other with a shotgun. The rifle part includes shooting at targets in sequence including a fox (2x), a roebuck (2x), a chamois (2x), a standing wild boar and a running wild boar. Both CZ Shooting Team competitors achieved excellent results in this discipline. Martin Šlechta only lost three points and Tomáš Staněk four points of the total of 400 possible points. It was followed by the shotgun discipline, with the same maximum number of points as the rifle discipline. Tomáš Staněk managed to prove his qualities in this contest as well, reaching for the gold with the total result of 772 points. Martin Šlechta took the silver with 769 points, by a very narrow margin ahead of the third, Karel Kotrc with 768 points. Both CZ Shooting Team competitors used the CZ 527 Varmint rifle in .222 Remington calibre.

Final ranking of the national Hunting Rifle Tetrathlon championship:

  1. Tomáš Staněk, CZ Shooting Team 248 points
  2. Jindřich Mahel 246 points
  3. Karel Kotrc 199 points

Final ranking of the national Combined Hunting Shooting championship:

  1. Tomáš Staněk, CZ Shooting Team 772 points

An avalanche of medals for the CZ Shooting Team: 6 golds + 2 silvers + 1 bronze

This year, the first weekend in May brought members of the CZ Shooting Team a deluge of medals. Altogether, they won a fantastic nine medals in three international IPSC competitions. And what is more, all of the nominated shooters wearing CZ colours appeared on the podium! 

The team won the largest number of medals in the Mosquito Match event, which took place between 5th and 6th May 2018 in Komárno. In this event, members of the CZ Shooting Team secured most of the winning places, with Ljubiša Momčilovič and Robin Šebo winning gold and silver in the Production Division, and Josef Rakušan, Zdeněk Liehne and Petr Znamenáček taking gold, silver and bronze in the Standard Division.

Another successful event was the Mediterranean Extreme Open, which was held between 5th and 7th May 2018 in Rhodos, Greece.  Michal Štěpán triumphed in the Production Division, winning by a margin of more than 14% over the others, Miroslav Havlíček excelled in the Open Division, by a margin of 10%.

The third competition where the gold medal went to a CZ representative was the Kresna Eagle Extreme in Depok. It took place between the 5th and 6th May 2018 near the Malaysian capital, Jakarta. Robin Černigoj, a Slovenian member of the CZ Shooting Team won a gold medal in the Production Division with a margin of a superb 18% over the second placed Busro from Indonesia.

Naturally, weapons from CZ played a huge role in these successes of the CZ Shooting Team. The CZ Shadow 2 pistols were the handgun of choice in the Production Division, the CZ 75 Tactical Sports pistols were used in the Standard Division and the CZ 75 TS Czechmate pistols were put into action in the Open Division.

For the CZ Shooting Team it has been an absolutely fantastic start of the new shooting season.   Jakub Sondel, the Head of Sport & Display Team in CZ says: “A huge thank you goes to all members of the Shooting Team for such excellent results. I am glad that we have begun the new shooting season with great success and we look forward to future events. There will be the 10th year of the CZ Extreme Euro Open in Hodonice near Znojmo, a very popular international event, as well as three continental events in Thailand, South Africa and Jamaica. I firmly believe that we will do the maximum we can to be well prepared to return with great scores.”

CZ would like to say a big thank you to all the shooters for their excellent results and wish them the best success in the upcoming events.

Tomáš Staněk Champion of the Czech Republic in Combined Game Shooting 2018

On Saturday, 28th April 2018, the Czech Republic Combined Game Shooting Championship took place at the Hvězda shooting range in Kotojedy near Kroměříž.  Tomáš Staněk, a factory shooter from CZ became the Champion of the Czech Republic, while the silver medal went to Martin Šlechta. Both used the CZ 527 Varmint in .222 Remington cal.

Two members of the CZ Shooting Team, Tomáš Staněk and Martin Šlechta, triumphed in the combined game shooting event. Martin Šlechta achieved the best result in the rifle event, losing only two points, Tomáš Staněk took the lead in the shotgun events where he scored 376 points. Ultimately, he became the overall winner of both events with a total score of 770 points, thus gaining the title of Champion of the Czech Republic in Combined Game Shooting 2018. In the women’s event, Michaela Štenglová became a gold medallist with 644 points.

The weather was great throughout the day and the Championship saw 36 competitors taking part in several categories: Men A, Men B (who had achieved less than 720 points out of 800 in the last two years, and beginners), Juniors, Seniors (Veterans), Ladies and Guests. The participants demonstrated their skill in several disciplines: game trench, two game compaks, running boar and game rifle with fixed targets.

As the main sponsor of the event, CZ provided two weapons as prizes– one for the shooter with the best score and one as a prize for a draw for all the contestants.

CZ would like to say a big thank you to the organizers for their great work, offer their congratulations to all the winners and wish everyone the best of success in this year’s shooting season, culminating with the European Championships in Italy.
