They are also customers in the industry. They have been on your side of the counter, your end of the phone, or more likely today, your end of the emails. Dave and Matt built this company to give you the same things they wanted as customers; Friendly, professional customer service, extremely high quality products made with the best components available in the world, and guaranteed results that are tested and verified before you ever take delivery of your rifle.
