History

In the early 1970s, Harrell Howell shot his first round of skeet at the request of a friend to improve his score on the dove field…….  It was a spark that would ignite a flame years later.  After retiring from the Army, Harrell began selling guns and reloading supplies out of a makeshift shop (comprised of a carport and 10x10 storage building) to help offset his costs as a competitive skeet shooter.

Twenty-five years later, not much has changed….well, maybe a few things: the carport has been replaced by two warehouses, the serviceman in a Suburban has been replaced by a fleet of service vehicles, but the hallmark of quality equipment and reliable service will never change.
