DEAN DETURK3Gun Nation National Heavy Metal Champion.
Favorite Accomplishment: Winning the Heavy Metal National Championship, a 3 Gun Nation Regional in Factory Division, and the Inaugural 3 Gun Nation Long Range event in the .308 division all in the same year.
Causes: Teaching young people to enjoy the shooting sports and outdoor activities, making sure our nations veterans' and LEO receive the recognition they deserve for serving our country.
Why Tifosi? Tifosi glasses are simply the most comfortable and clear glasses I have worn in over 12 years participating in the shooting sports. Not only do I feel they are better than other glasses on the market, they are available to the consumer at a fair price that everyone can afford.
Favorite Accomplishment: Making my first top 20 finish at a Major 3-Gun match in 2016.
Causes: Veteran's groups and the Task Force Dagger Foundation.
Why Tifosi?: I have a smaller profile and having a shield type frame that I don’t need a hat to secure on my head is a nice change for shooting glasses. The HC red lenses make targets pop on the range. I have had 3 eye surgeries and understand the value of protecting your eyesight. For years I have searched for a pair of glasses that were comfortable for 10 plus hours of wearing on the range while not prone to fogging up in the humidity the south has to offer. The lens design of the Blockades delivered that and I was instantly sold on them.
MATTHEW KOOPIKKA3Gun, USPSA, Action Shooting
Favorite Accomplishment: Taking 1st place in the Nordic/Vortex Tri-Gun National Championship.
Causes I care about: The Ryan Rocks!!! Outdoor Adventures charity organization. Ryan Rocks!!! Takes kids that have been diagnosed with cancer and their families out of the hospital and into the great outdoors.
Why Tifosi: Tifosi Optics have the great clarity and fog resistance that a shooter needs to keep sharp sight focus in adverse conditions.
DAVID HORN3Gun, Practical Shooting Sports
Reason(s) Why I Train: Success is often a result of effort. I train so I that I know I've put forth the effort to be successful. For me it's as much about confidence as it is about preparedness.
Causes I Care About: Task Force Dagger Foundation
Why Tifosi?: In our sport, optical clarity is paramount with impact resistance being a close second. Tifosi delivers in both areas, not to mention they are an amazing value and they look pretty cool!
MATTHEW MITCHELLPro Competitive Shooter
Favorite Accomplishment: Winning High Overall for the 2016 Monster Match.
Causes: I love helping new shooters. Junior shooters are the future of the sport, so helping junior shooters gain knowledge in the sport as well as firearms safety is a cause that is paramount.
Why Tifosi?: Tifosi products are of the highest standards and quality that I have looked for in eyewear and eye protection. The color contrast that the variety of different lenses produce, makes all shapes and images clear, sharp, and easy to see. I love the way you can change lenses out without ever having to put your fingers on the lenses and putting fingerprints on them. It makes it easier on the range when I can simply switch lenses and get back to work.
NICK MOLINA3Gun/Multigun, USPSA
Favorite Accomplishment? Taking a long range stage win at a major match. Living in Michigan hinders my ability to practice past 100 yards, so winning a stage that had shots out to 425 yards was something I had been chasing for the last couple years.
Causes I Care About? Ryan Rocks Outdoor Adventures and Task Force Dagger are the two charities I have worked with since I started shooting.
Why Tifosi? I had been searching for a company that offers a wide range of adjustability to get the glasses to fit correctly and interchangeable lenses while maintaining an affordable price. Tifosi delivered, not only for shooting glasses but also for day to day use.
