The Gunwerks LR-1000 shooting system at the Peacemaker National Training Center
While in West Virginia for an NRA Electronic Target event, we had a chance to try out a CarbonX rifle from Wyoming's Gunwerks.
Gerrardstown, West Virginia
- There's a sense of accomplished derived from hitting a target at 1,000 yards. Even more so if you make it into the ten ring. While I can't boast the latter, I did go five for five on the Peacemaker National Training Center's
Patriot Range a few weeks ago in West Virginia. Full of vigor and pride, I approached the Center's President (Cole McCulloch) for information on the rifle.
"Don't ask me," said McCulloch. "Ask Mike there, he's the one who makes them."
Standing in the shadows, taking it all in, was Mike Davidson of Gunwerks. And he was smiling like a jack-o'-lantern.
"That's the LR1000. Liked that gun now, did you," he asked. Yes. Yes I did.
Seems Mike and his brother Aaron started the company about six years ago. A hobby that turned into a career, Gunwerks was quest to do just that ... make a gun that works.
