Shot-Force Pro Brings Innovation to AR500 Targets

ShotForceTargets_8402Several members of the GunLink team have spent at least some portion of their lives in southern Ohio, so the area has a place in our hearts.  Although most of us have since spread throughout the country, we were happy to discover Nelsonville-based Shot-Force Pro while wandering the SHOT Show dungeon this past January.  It is always nice to run in to someone from “back home” when travelling.

In addition to catching up on Ohio news and being introduced to company founder Steve Davis and his team while visiting their booth in Las Vegas, we were also introduced to some of their innovative targets.  On a recent trip back to our old AO, we had the opportunity to stop by and visit the Shot Force facility and see where the magic happens.  While there, we also got to put rounds on just about every kind of target that they currently produce as well as getting a behind the scenes look at some of the new target systems that are still in the R&D phase.

After a lively discussion on guns and politics, we got to take a look at the Shot Force production area, including stacks upon stacks of hardened steel plates, the plasma cutting table that transforms them from generic plates into their various shapes, and finished products – clad in brightly colored powder coating – waiting to be shipped out.   Continue reading

Mean Tweets – Anti-Gun Zealot Edition

MeanTweetsThe brilliant minds over at the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) posted a cute video a few weeks ago showcasing some of the social media malaise they have received.  Despite the idea being stolen from Jimmy Kimmel’s #MeanTweets routine and the groups absurd name (right in line with calling the disarmament of law abiding citizens to stop violent criminals from preying on them “common sense”), there are some pretty good ones in there.

Keep letting @CSGV know how you really feel and maybe we’ll see a Part II.

Direct all other tweets and posts, mean or otherwise to @GunLink on Twitter or @GunLink on Facebook.  Watch the video below…    Continue reading

Q&A with Stars of CMT’s Guntucky

Guntucky Season 2We had a chance for a quick Q&A session with some of the stars from CMT’s Guntucky.  The reality series, gearing up to start their second season, focuses on the Sumner family as they run Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky  KCR, of course, is home to the bi-annual machine gun shoot, an event that showcases some serious firepower and was featured in season one.  If you missed season one, you can watch and discuss full episodes on the GunLink forums here.

The 10-episode season one featured 30-minute episodes that included some pretty zany antics including exploding log cabins, Zombie Apocalypse preparations, a doomsday-ready SUV and a firearms crash course for the firearms first-timer boyfriend of Stephanie Sumner… from her dad!

Kenny Sumner, co-owner of the range, and his brother Steven answered some questions for GunLink: Continue reading
