The city of Rotorua in New Zealand was at the turn of February and March the venue for the 2013 Australasia IPSC Handgun Championship. This city now also went down in history as the place of successes achieved by many shooters who were using pistols made by Česká zbrojovka and who occupied the leading positions in this prestigious competition. First positive results for our shooters followed soon when after two days of travel when they landed on the North Island of New Zealand. Hot summer day they entered into was the exact opposite of the Central European winter season, when our country was covered by another layer of snow and the roads were barely passable.
Traditionally fared very well the shooters and the CZ 75 SP-01 SHADOW pistols when occupying the first seven positions in the Production Division. From 167 starting competitors in said Division we have seen victory of the shooter of the CZ company representative in the Philippines, Mr Jeufro Emil Lejano. The second place, despite facing huge travel problems, was taken by Mr Ljubiša Momčilovič from Česká zbrojovka team. He arrived to the place where this Championship was held by one day later and to the bad luck without luggage, so he had to shoot with the pistol borrowed from the CZ agent. Another CZUB shooter Mr Petr Znamenáček took the fourth place in the Standard Division using the CZ 75 TS pistol.
The largest number of opponents – and that 260 – had in the Open Division the shooter of Česká zbrojovka Mr Martin Kameníček, shooting the CZ 75 Czechmate pistol. However, he managed to assert himself in a tough competition and took the fifth place in the overall rating. Moreover, on the last day at the Shoot off competition he gave an excellent performance and won this competition amidst a great applause. So he brought home a gold medal.
