"Gunfighter Targets came out of our combination of our passion for shooting sports and wanting to create new and exciting targets along with costs that allow the average shooter to get great high quality practice targets for a reasonable cost. Leading to a feeling of being able to feel confident stepping on the range with the pros.
DSS has been testing their targets throughout the 2017 season in the 3 Gun Nation, USPSA and steel matches held at our range. We have been so impressed with their performance that we have asked Gunfighter Targets to be our title sponsor for the North East Ohio 3-Gun Head-to-Head Shoot-Off. We will be utilizing over 60 of their targets in our inaugural match and will be ordering even more to utilize in our competitions for 2018 season.
We initially looked to their Reactive Steel targets as a replacement for knock down steel and shotgun clays. Compared to the knock down steel, we found the Gunfighter Targets easier to put up and much easier to reset (we weren't chasing steel all over the bays). When we looked at the cost of using shotgun clays, the 6"x6" reactive targets offered a similar performance and paid for themselves after only 8 matches using our average match participation. They also offer Match Directors a significant discount compared to always offering paper targets.

DSS is extremely pleased to be accepted to the Criterion Barrels Inc. “Barrels for Juniors” program for 2018. Our main goal at DSS is to grow the practical shooting sports, there is no better place to start than the “ground up” with our youth.
Criterion Barrels Inc. has partnered with Generation III Gun to help support the expansion of youth participation in the sport of 3-Gun. The vehicle for this sponsorship is the “Barrels for Juniors” program, a donation effort dedicated to maximizing exposure of the Generation III Gun organization at 3-Gun venues across the country.
Generation III Gun is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that aims to become the organization that ensures that every junior shooter that wants to attend a 3-gun match can actively participate. The goal of Generation III Gun is to reimburse junior shooters for every major 3-gun match entry fee. Once that goal is accomplished, Generation III Gun will focus on their ultimate goal of ensuring that any junior that wants to shoot a major match has the resources they need to do so.
For more information, please check out the Barrels for Juniorsprogram on the Criterion Barrels Inc. website. Also, please head over to Generation III Gun to check out how they are working to promote competitive shooting for juniors.
Criterion Barrels, Inc. was founded in 1999 as a division of Krieger Barrels, Inc. in response to demands of rifle builders and firearms manufacturers for quality match grade barrels at a lower cost. Our company is now completely independent from Krieger Barrels, featuring a separate facility, personnel, and ownership.
Criterion rifle barrels are match grade. Our 30+ years of experience and shared history with Krieger have given us a true understanding of what match grade means. Uniformity of the bore dimension, groove dimension, and twist, and the finish produced by hand lapping are essential for the ultimate accuracy of the barrel. With our expertise we are able to control these factors and deliver an unbelievably accurate match grade barrel at a reasonable price.
We are very excited to have some hometown support for 2019: Rubber City Armory. RCA is located on Kenmore Blvd in Akron, Ohio and managed by Jeff Larson. Jeff is also a Season Pass holder at DSS.
Being active shooters themselves, RCA saw the need for a better surface treatment than what was being offered on AR-15’s and other firearm parts. This translated into making their own bolt carrier groups with their premium surface treatment which catapulted them ahead of other manufacturers. This has also led RCA to further innovations in lightweight designs that make use of the latest technology and surface treatments available.
Rubber City Armory has developed a revolutionary treatment eliminating the need for excessive oil or grease on firearm components . Their rigorous BlackNitride+℠ process results in high-performance parts that have increased wear-resistance, fatigue strength, corrosion resistance, lubricity and cosmetic appeal.
Rubber City Armory is also an avid supporter of our local law enforcement agencies and practical shooting sports around the country. For more information about their bolt carrier groups, products and processes, please contact RCA or you can talk with Jeff or one of our Team DSS members when you are at the range.
DSS is honored to have Invictus Practical back on board for the 2019 season. Kevin Pratt and his company have been long-time supporters of the practical shooting sports, sponsoring major 3 -gun matches and top professional shooters all accross the US for many years. Their lineup of shotshell caddies is the benchmark for the 3-gun community.
The Invictus Practical AARM/S line of shotshell caddies was designed from the ground-up to be the best performing, most versatile, and highest-quality competition kit available at any price. Their quad load family of shotshell caddies feature an innovative, purpose-designed shell clip which nests shells so close that their rims touch - yet retains each shell independently - and utilizing a one-of-a-kind 1/8" vertical offset between adjacent shell rows that keeps the "bottom" shells down and out of your way until you're ready for them (when grabbing two-at-a-time, Load-Two style), the Quad-Load line of shotshell caddies is perfect for the shooter who values flexibility, adjustability, and wants to Quad-Load AND / OR Load-Two - all in one kit. The caddies are compatible with Bladetech (Tek-Lok and TMMS) and Safarliand (ELS, QLS and MLS) belt attachment devices.
Many of the Team DSS member also utilize the DeTurk Vest Chest Rig System. Developed and produced in conjunction with one of today's top shooters - Dean DeTurk. This chest-mounted shotshell platform combines the lightweight stability and flexibility of Dean's Kydex backer plate with the proven performance of Invictus Practical Quad Clips, 6ix Clips or 8ight Clips (your choice) to create the perfect platform to Quad-Load or Load-Two from the chest.
Not to be overlooked, the Invictus Practical Holster Hangar is a great way to create some space between your belt and handgun. This creates a better position for optimizing the speed of your draw stroke. Again, many of the Team DSS member utilize this enhancement.
Keven has been kind enough to create a rebate program for our shooters. Please Contact us before placing an order and we will assist you with your order to ensure that you receive your 10% rebate.
Team DSS is extremely proud to be partnered with HIPERFIRE for the 2018 season. HIPERFIRE is a huge supporter of the practical shooting sports, sponsoring dozens of major matches, competitors and teams all across the United States.
High Performance Firearms, LLC, aka HIPERFIRE, has been changing the landscape of the 3-gun community since their launch. Through a "burning desire to innovate", they have developed several ground-breaking products for the modern sporting rifle. Probably most well known for their HIPERTOUCH lineup of single-stage triggers that feature a light-weight, controllable pull with a hard-hitting hammer, they also offer other innovative products: the HIPERCOMP series of AR and PCC compensators and the HIPERGRIP textured ergonomic pistol grip.
HIPERFIRE introduced the HIPERTOUCH ECLipse at Shot Show 2014. Building on the success of their previous designs, the ECLipse has an Electroless Nickel Boron (NiB) coating that offers an exceptionally smooth feel, enhanced corrosion protection and a polished look. It still maintains the hard-hitting hammer and adjustability of the HIPERSHOE finger pad that were very popular on their 24C model.
If you would like to feel why HIPERFIRE is the leader in single-stage trigger technology, please just ask. A member of Team DSS would be happy to let you test drive one of ours to feel the difference!
