Accokeek, MD -- Beretta USA team shooter Vincent Hancock continues to shine as he and the USA Shooting Men's Skeet team won gold at the recent World Cup match in Concepcion, Chile.
Competing as a member of the youngest men's skeet team on the ISSF World Cup series, Hancock obliterated 122 out of a possible 125 targets using his Beretta DT-10 and along with teammates Jon Michael McGrath's 123/125 and Frank Thompson's 121/125, posted a combined score of 366/375 securing the gold medal for Team USA. Having already retired one DT-10 after his gold medal performance at the 2008 Beijing Olympics ("for sentimental reasons, the gun's just fine"), Hancock seems poised to defend his title at the 2012 London games, and hopefully retire another DT-10.
