The Re­sults of the Third An­nual Firearms In­dus­try Choice Awards

2018 brings us into the third year for the In­dus­try Choice Awards, as it be­gins to hit its stride with yet more cat­e­gories and more com­pa­nies in­volved. Hosted at Rock­cas­tle Shoot­ing Cen­ter in Ken­tucky, the In­dus­try Choice Awards fo­cus on con­duct­ing ob­jec­tive test­ing and eval­u­a­tion of prod­ucts by a panel of un­bi­ased and ex­pe­ri­enced eval­u­a­tors, in or­der to award prod­uct of the year ac­co­lades in a va­ri­ety of cat­e­gories.

This gives end users and con­sumers an awards process that’s un­bi­ased, while par­tic­i­pat­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers re­ceive all of the feed­back from testers. Ad­di­tion­ally, all the com­pa­nies are in­vited to come to Rock­cas­tle in the sum­mer for the In­dus­try Team Chal­lenge match and awards cer­e­mony. De­signed by Andy Horner, the match fea­tures ev­ery­thing from three-gun to ac­tion pis­tol to long-range pre­ci­sion to trap and sport­ing clays. We’ve at­tended this event ev­ery year and can attest to the qual­ity of the match and the op­por­tu­nity to get to know oth­ers in the in­dus­try. We def­i­nitely en­cour­age com­pa­nies to sub­mit prod­ucts and par­tic­i­pate in the awards.

Once again, we’re the ex­clu­sive pub­lish­ing part­ner to re­port on the In­dus­try Choice Awards. This year, the num­ber of prod­uct cat­e­gories ex­panded to 13. The win­ners are de­tailed in the pages to fol­low.
