Devil Dog Arms to supply prize table with DDA RIS-15 rifles as Thacker makes his return to 3-Gun competition at 3GN’s season-ending championship
Devil Dog Arms recently signed on as a sponsor for the upcoming 3GN Nationals Nov. 10-11 at the Clinton House in South Carolina. The company will provide DDA RIS-15 rifles for the prize table, continuing its support for the shooting sports and competition shooters.
For one long-time 3GN member, and former 3GN Champ, 3GN Nationals will serve as a comeback, as Devil Dog’s Tommy Thacker makes his return to competition after “retiring” last year.
“I am excited to make my comeback at the 2018 3GN Nationals,” Thacker said. “This event has had its ups and downs for me over the years and after stepping away last year, it left a void that I haven’t been able to fill. I guess retirement just wasn’t ready for me.”
And the veteran competitor is brining Devil Dog with him, a company he has helped breathe life back into over the past couple of years, now offering a full line of AR-15s, Model 1911 pistols and high-end bolt-action rifles.
“It’s all about timing, Devil Dog Arms is starting to push some sponsorships and with 3GN Nationals as the first major event it was just fitting that it all comes together here,” Thacker said. “I’ve been a longtime supporter of 3GN and their efforts to build 3-Gun at the local level and bring awareness to the sport through their media outlets.”
