IHMSA Intls, NRA Natls, LA Extravaganza, Australia Natls

We at E. Arthur Brown Company are very proud that Champions choose our guns to compete with. Here are the 2000 Championships won with our guns... IHMSA Internationals 2000 World Champion - John Weaver: “The BF you re-barreled last year to 300/221R is the most accurate and easy to shoot Production gun I have shot. This year I used it to shoot perfect scores in the Region 4 and Texas State matches. In addition, I shot an 80X80 with it at the 2000 IHMSA Internationals and won the shoot-off with 4X5 chickens at 200 meters. In the four shoot-offs I have shot with the BF, I have left only 2 targets. What an outstanding piece of equipment. Thank You, John Weaver”
NRA Nationals 2000 Champion - Richard Mishler
LASC Extravaganza 2000 Champion - Richard Mishler: Richard also holds the World Record for 500 Meter Handgun Metallic silhouette, shot with his same BF Ultimate Silhouette Pistol in 7mm US chambering... "Go ahead and tell your customers how much I love my BF". Richard is an exceptional marksman and gentleman.
IHMSA Austalian Nationals Champion - Barry Whitford: “...your BF handguns have once again been successful in this year’s 2000 Australian IHMSA Championships… In centerfire Production, using my 7mm US, I shot 40/40 in competition and then won the shootoff against another shooter using a 7mm US BF. In rimfire Unlimited, I won the category outright with the only rimfire 40/40 shot… I used my (BF) PRODUCTION gun… same gun with which I won the 1999 Aust Champs Production category as well… Thanks again for a great product.”
