As U.S. citizens commemorated Veteran’s Day, BLACKHAWK! celebrates 20 years of producing the finest gear for military personnel, law enforcement, first responders and shooting sports enthusiasts. BLACKHAWK! was started by a U.S. Navy SEAL who had his gear fail while on the battlefield. The near fatal consequences inspired him to begin designing and producing products out of his garage that would perform when it mattered most. Today, BLACKHAWK! is owned by ATK Sporting and offers more than 6,800 SKUs with three domestic production facilities.
“We would like to thank all who have served in the armed forces for their commitment to defending America and its people,” said BLACKHAWK! Brand Director Chuck Buis. “Our mission is to protect those who serve on the front lines every day and in doing so, help to defend our freedoms at home and abroad. Our continued commitment to provide the best possible products available has earned BLACKHAWK! a reputation of dependability.”
For the past 20 years, BLACKHAWK! has continued to offer gear, apparel, holsters and accessories that end users can depend on with their lives. Some of the industry’s most notable product names are found under the BLACKHAWK! brand and the most successful holster in the world continues to be made in America. The SERPA platform is used by U.S. military members, law enforcement agencies and private citizens across the country and throughout the world. There are more than six million in circulation now, and more are made every day in a brand new 90,000 square foot facility in Manhattan, Mont.
