COMPETITIVE SHOOTING TEAM
Growing up as a farm kid instilled a deep love for hunting, fishing, and the outdoors in Darron. Many thousands of rounds of 22lr were expended punching holes in tin cans and stalking the native rodent population. In college Darron was introduced to centerfire long-range precision competitions which rekindled my passion for firearms. Fast forward a few years and Darron began competing in the local NRL22 club matches with the Free State Precision Plinkers. Besides competing in NRL/PRS-style rimfire matches Darrons “free time” is spent with my wife and children, bow hunting deer, turkey hunting, collecting antique reloading equipment, and learning to love my fellow man.
