With the holiday season over and 2020 upon us, we hope you’ve had a great Christmas and have a happy new year. 2019 has been a big year for us and we want to thank you for being apart of it. 

We also want to let you in on what we have been working on the past few months, and our plans for 2020. 

As always, our focus is on great gear and great customer service. With that we have a few announcements. First off, we’d like to welcome 2 new shooters to the Hammer Armament team for 2020. 

Zak Parker is a local law enforcement officer and accomplished competitive shooter. Zach has been a big help in testing new gear, as well as helping me become a better shooter. He is a great representative of the shooting sports as a uspsa and Multigun/3gun competitor and all around stand up guy.

From Zach:

I have been in law enforcement for over 15 years and a firearms instructor for 14 years. I have been in the TAC Team for 7 years. I started getting into competitive shooting 2 1/2 years ago using duty issued equipment. Realizing duty equipment was ok and winning with it, I started to buying better equipment geared for competitive use instead of using duty gear, which helped me to become faster and more confident in my equipment. This is where Hammer Armament comes in. This is excellent gear for the competitive shooter and off duty carry gear. I enjoy teaching others to shoot well and be confident in using any type of firearm they want to learn on. This sport and job are continually changing making them interesting jobs to work in. 

Chad Swarthout is a guy that many of you might recognize in the 3 gun scene. Chad is a very active participant in 3 gun matches around the country and is doing a great job as a representative of the sport of 3 gun. Chad is also working to help promote memorial 3 gun.

My duty as an ambassador is to ‘spread awareness of the foundations efforts and events. through my social my social media outlets and representing the memorial 3 gun foundation at matches I attend.’ “

We are happy to be working with these guys going forward to help spread the word about our products, promoting the shooting sports, and testing new products. 

The other way that we are working on providing our customers with an even better experience is creating more in depth and valuable video and blog content. We have toyed with video production in the past, but have decided to take our holster tips video series to a higher production level.

We will be exploring other options as well so if you now of another platform you’d like to see us on, let us know.
