Ballistic shoots for best finished barrel in the industry

Clint Hanson with a Ballistic Advantage rifle at SHOT Show's Media Day in Boulder City, Nevada

Las Vegas, Nevada - Every fan of Shark Tank knows there are a couple of questions you better have answers for; what were your sales for last year, what's your cost per unit, and what's the cost of customer acquisition. It's usually the customer acquisition question that trips people up. But if you follow the path developed by the boys at Ballistic Advantage, you're sure to have a number that's sure to turn even Mr. Wonderful's head.

"You looked like you wanted to shoot something," Head Armorer Clint Hanson told me. "Thought I would wait to for you to experience what a great product we have before telling you."

From USA Shooting - 17th Title in Sight for West Virginia as NCAA Rifle Season Starts Phase 2 of 2014-15 Campaign

The West Virginia University rifle program has done nothing to deter us from thinking a 17th title is well within its grasp with a perfect 8-0 record at the midway point of the NCAA Rifle season. The second-half of the NCAA rifle season got underway this past weekend with two months remaining before the NCAA Rifle Championship.

Outdoor Writer says Tactical Hunting: Sir, Yes Sir!

Smith & Wesson tactical rifle

Outdoor shaman Kevin Reese returns in a fury in his call for tactical rifle hunting ...
Corsicana, Texas - My pop once told me I might fit into my dress blues if I used bungee cords; the truth hurts. Looking at me it’s hard to believe I spent eight years in the Marines. In all honestly, I’m not that bad off… I’m just not that well off; I could stand a few months of nonstop treadmill work. Beyond reminiscing about my life as a Marine and wishing I still looked the part, I miss many aspects of active duty life – chief among them being camaraderie and my trusty M-16 A2 Service Rifle.

I wasn’t a huge promoter of 62-grain 5.56 Ball NATO ammunition but it seemed to be sufficient. I qualified every year as a rifle expert and later in my second enlistment as a pistol sharpshooter, qualifying with an original Colt 1911 that had been in Marine Corps service for over 75 years and was still a sweet shooter.
