Fellow Shooters - March 2014

Fellow Shooters,

A group of us Sinclair and Brownells folks just got back from the IWA Outdoor Classics Show in Nuremburg, Germany. IWA is a bit like a European version of the SHOT Show, and this year's event was very well-attended. We saw a lot of excitement from our European counterparts for Sinclair products, especially our Heavy Varmint Shooting Rest, which we believe really is one of the finest shooting rests available anywhere.

We saw lots of interesting products too, and had a chance to meet up with key industry folks, as we hunted down the best precision-shooting products for you. One product line you'll be able to buy from Sinclair in the near future is Zeiss Optics. Zeiss has been known for very high-quality optical devices since the 1840s, and we're very proud that their products will be available through Sinclair sometime this summer.

We also got a lot of international interest in Sinclair International's new dealer pricing program. If you run a business that sells shooting products and would like to learn more about reselling items from the Sinclair International lineup, please give us a call at 1-800-717-8211.

According to the calendar, Spring arrived last week - and that means the shooting season is about to get cranked up. The Sinclair International East Coast Fullbore Nationals will be happening next week, April 3-6, in Butner, North Carolina. Team Sinclair will be there in force, defending its string of undefeated appearances stretching back to 2004. We'll let you know the results in the April Reloading Press.

Something that might make us even happier, now that shooting season is here, is ammunition finally coming back into stock. Popular cartridges like 9mm Luger, .223/5.56 and .308/7.62 NATO are available again. Check out the IMI ammunition and the premium Gorilla match ammo we've recently picked up. And as long as you're getting ammo for your AR-15, check out the popular Nikon P-223 and M-223 scopes optimized just for the AR platform. If you order one of these scopes before March ends, you'll qualify for the "Mount 'Em Up" deal - a free Nikon mount with the scope! Click here for details.

We just learned that our good friend and Sinclair shooter Kelly Bachand has been invited to compete in the Trijicon World Shooting Championship at the National Training Center in Glengary, West Virginia, September 10-13, 2014. This first-of-its kind match will crown the "Undisputed World Shooting Champion," and competitors will have to perform in 12 different shooting disciplines over four days. In all, 400 shooters will compete for a $50,000 top prize. We'll be sure to keep you updated on Kelly's preparations for this amazing match.

One more important event on the near horizon is the "NRA Show," formally called the NRA Meetings & Exhibits, in Indianapolis, IN, next month – April 25-27. It'll be at the Indiana Convention Center, right in beautiful downtown Indianapolis. Be sure to visit us at Booth #5565 to say "hi" and check out all the Sinclair brand products we'll have on display.

Lastly, we're excited about the Sinclair 2014A Catalog that will be arriving in your mailbox in April. We've packed it full of the best precision shooting products we can find. We're really proud of the new Sinclair/L.E. Wilson Micro-Adjust Bullet Seater die. It'll be available for 15 popular cartridges. Look for it to be featured on the back cover of the catalog, or if you can't wait, you can read the product details and pre-order one here.

Take advantage of Spring. Shake off the winter doldrums, and get out the range. Now's the perfect time to start shooting those new loads you made when the snow was still deep and cold.

Until next month...shoot straight and take care.

All the best,

Geoff Esterline
