Tori Nonaka Crowned Production Class High Lady

Production Class High Lady sounds like a bad translation from English to Japanese and back (with some dyxslexia thrown in for good measure). But it’s actually an enormous honor that the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) has bestowed upon Glock Team teen queen Tori Nonaka, who continues to kick major league you-know-what in shooting’s major leagues. Tori took the title at the USPA’s Area 6 Championship (only 47 more areas to go before it gets seriously weird) held at the Ancient City Shooting Range (right?) in St. Augustine, Florida on April 19-21. I’ve asked Glock if Ms. Nonaka would blog her matches for TTAG. I think they thought I said “nachos.” We’ll see . . .

Following two consecutive years of competing in the USPSA Area 6 with her G24 Limited GLOCK, Nonaka competed with her new G34 Production GLOCK from SJC Customs. Switching from the Limited Division to the Production Division forced Nonaka to show her skills in the more restrictive division. After two years away from that division, Nonaka took home the High Lady title in her first USPSA Area competition for 2013 using a nearly stock-model GLOCK.

“With the new G34 Production GLOCK, I performed well with all my steel hits for most of the match, going 1-for-1,” shared Nonaka. “Everything came together in this match; my GLOCK ran flawlessly.”

    Way to go!
    Yeah I know the engrish doesn’t do it justice, but dang, it is good to see she is getting recognition. Who knows this might promote shooting sports in Japan… One can only hope.

    Why is GLOCK in all caps? Are they doing the BLACKHAWK!! thing now?

    1. Because that’s the way the company spells it.

      Lol, reminds me of a scene from family guy:

      Quagmire: how old are you?
      Girl: 17.
      Quagmire: 18!?!?!
      Girl: Mom!!!
      Quagmire: I like where this is going…

        Yes, but with dumb tattoos. Can’t wait for the 2010s to be over and done.

      Maria Ozawa is over 18. Google her. You’re welcome.

      1. avatar C says:

        I have stumbled upon her in past research.

    5. avatar Chad says:

      Actually, she turned 18 about a month ago.

    A certain Mr Abbate forgot she was a minor.

      I would love to see Billy’s ex wife Jessie and Tori on the Ladies Super Squad at the Nationals.

      1. avatar PPGMD says:

        Something similar happened at a recent match, they were both on the winners podium. The drama llama is still there.

    Finally a pleasant break from the latest Sturm und Drang.

    If that was an Area 51 reference in the first paragraph, you did your math wrong. 6 + 47 = 53

    1. avatar John L. says:

      Hey, I work in Area 53!

      It’s much more interesting, believe me … We keep the death ray cannon here. (FIeld Test Fridays are especially fun.)

      1. avatar jwm says:

        Area 69 here. You don’t want to hear about our casual Fridays.

    Find out if she needs a daddy.

  8. avatar Herb says:

    Is it the camera, or does somebody need to buy that gal a cheeseburger!?

    1. avatar Gordon says:

      Looks like she is in superb shape to me! Certainly doesn’t need to add any fat to that body!

    ” G34 Production GLOCK from SJC Customs”

    Not being familiar with these competitions, I’m a little confused. A “production” gun sourced from a custom shop? Is this similar to how the “stock cars” in NASCAR aren’t actually stock cars?
