Cruising this year’s SHOT Show looking for exhibitors for the 2015 Texas Firearms Festival, we happened upon Bergara Custom Rifles. We described the event to them. They immediately asked about the 1000-yard spots on the Rifle Range (sponsored by The Range at Austin). We told them we only had space for three manufacturers at maximum range. Bergara signed-up on the spot. And why not? The company stakes it reputation on long-range accuracy, enabled by their increasingly legendary rifle barrels. The Douglasville Police Department S.W.A.T. is on board. They’ve purchased the Bergara Premier Tactical chambered in .308 [press release after the jump]. it’s the same rifle that’ll be ringing steel at the Texas Firearms Festival on November 14 and 15 at Best of the West Shooting Sports in Liberty Hill. Come and shoot it! Click here for tickets – before the next price hike . . .
