Kalashnikov USA Shooter Alaina James Again Secures First Place Finish in the Ladies Division at the Red Oktober Kalashnikov Championships
Pompano Beach, Florida (October 26, 2022) – Kalashnikov USA’s (KUSA) sponsored shooter Alaina James placed first in the Ladies category at the Red Oktober Kalashnikov Championships that took place October 22-23 at Pro Gun Vegas in Boulder City, Nevada. This is the second year in a row that Ms. James took home the top Ladies ranking in the competition. More impressively, she did so as the only woman competing in “full kit”, wearing a ballistic plate carrier and helmet. Alaina placed 23rd out of 146 shooters in the Heavy Open division and 7th out of only 35 shooters outfitted with full body armor.
“We’re immensely proud of Alaina’s impressive shooting this year” said Evan Rosenthal, Vice President at Kalashnikov USA. “Prior to winning again at Red Oktober, she had previously taken the High Ladies’ spot at Kalashnicon and at the AK Masters competitions– she is a force to be reckoned with” he added.
“This was a really challenging match, in windy and dusty conditions, that required intense concentration and stamina. Competing while carrying ballistic plates and a helmet only added to the intensity”, said Hicks. “My KUSA KR-103 7.62x39mm rifle performed flawlessly. Then again, it is a KUSA Kalashnikov, so 100% reliability is the norm, not the exception. I’m grateful to Kalashnikov USA for their continued support and to the event staff at Red Oktober who did a fantastic job” she added.
