The inagural National Defense Match held at Camp Perry last weekend saw numerous shooters from some of the leaders in the shooting sports industry. Among them were Mike Guerra from Colt, Tommy Thacker and Ken Pfau from FNH USA, Bill and Amy Geissele of Geissele Triggers, Randy Luth and Deb Cheek from DPMS Panther Arms, Corey Schwanz of Brownell's, and Jim Clark, Jr. from Clark's Custom Guns.
These industry professionals, many of whom are seasoned competitors, shot alongside juniors, members of the armed forces, and others, making the match very diverse.
"This match is an introduction to a course of fire that can used at a grassroots-level to get people involved in a more tactical style of competitive shooting," said Match Director Trey Tuggle. "Having top names in the shootings sports industry come out to shoot the match is a great honor, and their generosity and feedback has been overwhelming."
Many of the companies represented were also sponsors of the match, so a big thank you goes out to them and all of the other amazing sponsors who showed their support for the very first National Defense Match.
