Kevin is a Mechanical Engineer with over 30 years experience in design, fabrication and manufacturing. He is a Master Graded competitive shooter and regularly competes nationally and internationally including representing Australia (when we can get to matches….COVID is not helping).
Kevin has extensive experience in the engineering investigations and the reason the rollsizer was designed originally was due to the current market offerrings in existing machines, bulge busting dies and other components not meeting competitors requirements.
Hence Rollsizer.com Pty Ltd was formed and now ships pour machines to 48 countries Worldwide.
Kevin is also the father of the Rollsizer.com sponsored shooter Paul Whitehead. Paul is the current Australian Standard Division Champion (2021) and is a GM graded shooter.
Paul has regularly represented Australia (starting from the age of 14) and is still classed as a Junior in IPSC (under 21).
SPONSORED SHOOTER: PAUL WHITEHEAD
Paul is a Junior Practical Pistol Shooter (IPSC) who achieved holster qualification at the Orange Grove Shooting Association at the age of 11.
Since then, he has competed in 5 Australian IPSC nationals, the Canadian IPSC Nationals in Vancouver (2nd A Grade), the SSAA nationals 2 times (top Junior) as well as multiple steel challenge competitions at Kukerin, SSAA competitions at West Coast pistol club etc.
Paul was selected to represent Australia the 2016 IPSC Australasian competition in Surabaya (at the age of 14 which makes him one of the youngest ever pistol shooters ever to represent Australia) and despite being hospitalised during the match for a stomach bug, he came a very credible 22nd out of 91 competitors outright and still took out 3rd Junior in Standard division. In addition, Paul and his father also took out first place with his father in the inaugural family medal award which is the highest combined score of both parent and junior.
Paul is the current Australian IPSC Junior Standard Division Champion, and has been for the last 5 years in both Junior (under 18).
Paul is a member of the Western Australia mens standard division Gold team and that came 3rd outright at the recent IPSC Nationals with Pauls score counting toward the final tally.
Most recently at a Level 2 competition in Leschenault, Western Australia Paul won Standard division outright against a list of 19 other standard division competitors.
Paul was trained by his father Kevin who is also an active shooter. Paul initially started shooting with a 9mm Stock 3 Tanfoglio in minor power factor and has now progressed to a 357 SIG in major with the current gun built by the team at Trueweight Inc in the Philippines.
He was recently commended at both the Nationals and the Australasian competition in Surabaya for his sportsman like behaviour and more importantly his very high level of safe gun handling and his focused attitude towards safety. This feedback was received from Australian and international Range Officers alike.
Paul has only just turned 17.
We look forward to seeing how he continues to develop and promote the shooting sports.
