This time they’ve produced a TV commercial with CEO Ron Coburn attempting a one-shot hit on a target at 1,200 yards. Coburn is coached by 1,000-yard champion Stan Pate. The commercial is a follow-on to the popular version featuring Pate knocking down two targets at 1,169 yards. We like seeing “bosses” out at the range shooting. Yes, it’s important that bosses be smart businessmen and women. Yes, they should know how to make impressive PowerPoint presentations and not have crooked teeth or bad breath or mustard stains on their shirts, and they must know how to use the word “quantifiable” correctly in a sentence. Yes, I understand all that. But in the firearm industry, we expect the boss to shoot. They don’t have to be a “good shooter,” but we want to see them at the range pulling the trigger. If you don’t think that’s important, think again. SI DIGITAL You can view the commercial featuring CoHot Link burn on Savage’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/SavageArms.

Originally, Santorum had been invited to hold a rally at H&H, but when it was obvious the crowd would grow to around 2,000, the location was changed. However, Santorum visited the complex just before the rally. “I wish we could have had it here; this would have been perfect,” Santorum said. “I am very impressed. It is easy to see why gun ownership is so strong here, and I stand tall with the Second Amendment.” “It was a great honor to show a small, but important, part of the shooting industry to one of our presidential hopefuls,” said Miles Hall, founder and president of H&H.
