Tactical Shooting Sports News: Koenig Wins PRS; AmmoReady, CoreWare Join Forces

Here is the latest tactical shooting sports news:

Team Ruger captain Doug Koenig claimed the production division win at the Accuracy International (AI) Long Range Classic.

The AI Long Range Classic is a Precision Rifle Series (PRS) competition that incorporates a challenging, 16-stage course of fire. It is designed to test the precision rifle competitor on accuracy, time and gear management, all while engaging an assortment of reactive and moving steel targets at distances ranging from 300-850 yards. The event was held March 2 at Altus Shooting Solutions in Baker, Fla.

"I started shooting PRS a little over a year ago and I really love it," Koenig said. "The movement and diverse shooting positions that you encounter in this sport always keep it fresh. There is a steep learning curve whenever you start another shooting discipline, but I'm having a great time shooting my Ruger Precision Rifle."

According to PRS standards, "production division rifles are not permitted to be altered or improved in any way from the original factory configuration." The rifle is also not permitted to exceed $2,000 USD in retail price. Koenig claimed top honors in this division shooting the Ruger Precision Rifle chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor, finishing with a final score of 133.00.

CoreWare, AmmoReady Join Forces for Firearms Retailers

AmmoReady.com has entered into a strategic partnership with CoreWare, with plans to  integrate their cloud-based ecommerce and POS solutions.

In addition, CoreWare will offer custom ecommerce website development for high-volume firearms retailers looking for specialized solutions.

“The combination of CoreStore and AmmoReady’s ecommerce platform is a game changer for the firearms industry,” said Paul Angell, CEO of AmmoReady.com. “Both solutions are easy to use, affordable, and effective in their own right. Together, they create a seamlessly integrated, end-to-end solution for hybrid firearms retailers at a much lower price point than anything else out there.”

In addition to developing native integration between both platforms, the two companies will also collaborate on joint sales, marketing, and customer support to create a seamless customer experience. The combination of scalable, cloud-based solutions for retail and ecommerce, professional services, and available 24x7 customer support means that FFLs ranging from startups, to online-only, to independent retail, and national chains can start small and then scale, in-store and online, with zero downtime and no operational disruption. The combined CoreWare/AmmoReady solution can be easily expanded to include additional hardware and online integrations as sales increase or customers migrate off of complicated, expensive, legacy technology.

“The shooting sports industry is full of solutions that are overpriced, with outdated technology, and severe shortcomings in functionality. To stay competitive in today’s world, retailers need an affordable, fully integrated solution for both their brick-and-mortar and online sales,” added Aaron Weinstein, COO of CoreWare. “AmmoReady and CoreStore will provide more functionality than comparable, legacy solutions at a fraction of the price. The CoreStore POS solution is designed for retailers with single or multiple locations and works on any device including PCs, tablets, and smartphones. We offer support for EMV processing and have a built in acquisition & disposition module.”

Firearms retailers interested in the CoreStore + AmmoReady omni-channel solution, which is expected to be available late spring or early summer 2019, are invited to sign up for an invitation to the private beta that will precede the official launch. To sign up, go to CoreStore.info or send an email to sales@coreware.com.
