Bolt Action Rifled Slug Guns

Building one of the “Best Guns of All Time”

 “It’s easier to get what you want, when you’re talking to people that understand what you need.”

He builds what have been called the “The most accurate rifled slug guns in the world”. His Rifled Slug Gun series of slug guns have been called “Revolutionary” and “One of the 50 Best Gun Designs of All Time”, (2009) by Field & Stream magazine. They are used by hunters, competition shooters and law enforcement agencies throughout the world for one main reason…”They consistently outperform the competition both on the range and in the field”.

Randy’s company, TarHunt Custom Rifles, Inc., was the driving force behind the research and development of the Lightfield “SameSite™ Accuracy” system using the Hybred-EXP series of sabot slugs from Lightfield Ammunition.  This “SameSite™ Accuracy” system is now the industries leader in sabot slug accuracy and technology.

Randy, along with Tony Kinchin, senior engineer and vice president of Lightfield, are responsible for both the testing and quality assurance of the Hybred-Exp as well as the Commander IDS Plus line of sabot slugs. Together, they are responsible for everything from the powder selection, product loading and accuracy acceptance tests.
