I recently had a rare opportunity to participate alongside members of ADS Inc’s Sales Team in new equipment training of products from Leupold Optics and Knight’s Armament Corp at Special Operations Veteran Jim Smith’s Spartan Tactical just west of Fort Worth, Texas. It was unseasonably cold and wet that week but we made the best of it, combining classroom, pistol, carbine and SR-25 range sessions as well as a little practical application during a night shoot in search of wild hogs.
Jim has a great facility at Spartan Tactical with a variety of ranges with targets in excess of 1000m.
Classroom instruction was focused on optics, shooting theory and product info. Because the group had a variety of experience levels, hands on instruction started out with carbine basics with optics and ramped up to the point where the participants where engaging targets at 900m once we switched to the SR-25s.
Everything we did focused on the practical application of various Leupold optics, even during the day two handgun session. The event gave me a much better appreciation of Leupold’s lineup and I know that the ADS folks I accompanied gained a lot of confidence in their use and picked up some new understanding of customer requirements. They also got to take terminology and theory and apply them first hand to successfully engaging targets.
ADS Inc has been working with vendors for years to offer updates to enhance existing systems, new components and turnkey solutions to enhance the lethality of their customers. In fact, the new Weapons & Optics catalog is available for order where you can check them out.
Leupold is going to release some VERY cool new products at SHOT Show (can’t show them just yet). The ADS team is well acquainted with these items and can help agencies and units with placing orders. We’ve already shown you a couple of other new products from Knight’s (Anti-Cant Device, Improved 45 Degree 200-600m Offset Rear Sight and Bipod) and those are available through ADS Inc as well.
