What is custom rifles.com and why are we even doing it? Who are we and why listen to anything we have to say? Let’s start there.
My name is Derrick, I’ve been hunting and shooting my entire life and have been working in the outdoor industry for nearly 10 years now. One thing I’ve noticed is that while in some areas of our industry, people are willing to share all the knowledge they have and help others in the sport, there are other areas that people keep their information tight to themselves. Almost like a “Bro club.” We wanted to create a simple place where we could share industry knowledge and our opinion when it pertained to rifles – specifically long range rifles, and long range hunting and shooting. We’re glad you’re here!
Why listen to me?
Honestly, that’s a good question. I ask myself that a lot from time to time. I am just a regular guy that the Lord has blessed in more ways that I can count. I have been blessed to be in an industry that I love for 10 years … I’ve worked at a major Archery/Rifle company, hosted my own hunting TV show, hunted all over – both in and out of the USA – started my own custom long range rifle company in 2012, and my own outdoor products company in 2016. I have a 4-year-old boy and a beautiful wife, I could not ask for anything more. I may not be a world-renowned benchrest shooter or a 85 year old gunsmith that has been building guns since the creation of the earth, but what I do have is industry knowledge that I would like to pass on, especially to hunters looking for a place to start.
