Testimonial for UA Arms

I was recently asked by one of our clients why we outfit our Global Protection
 Specialists with such high end weapons. For me the answer is simple: I expect
 the very best of our protection agents, so I give them the very best tools to
 get their job done. UA Arms are simply the highest quality firearms in
 the business.
Global Strategies, Inc.'s personnel need weapons that are able to operate in
 the harshest environments. From the hottest conditions in sub-Saharan Africa
 to the coldest climates in operational areas above the Arctic Circle, the
 weapons provided by UA Arms are custom-built well enough for
 competitive shooting matches, but rugged enough to withstand harsh environments 
 and everyday beatings.
UA Arms is simply a master at his trade and that's a quality we, at Global
 Strategies, honor in this modern day of poor workmanship and shoddy service. 
 Every weapon produced by UA Arms is a one-of-a-kind custom built piece of
 art. UA Arms was willing to work with us to produce the perfect pistol for our
 field operations and precise requirements.
UA Arms are the choice of weapon for Global Strategies for multiple
 reasons. UA pistols give the shooter the ability to perform at their best.
 The quality of craftsmanship can make a shooter even better. I don't just
 use an UA Arms pistol at the range or behind my desk: I wear one on my
 hip in the field along with my personnel.

UA Arms:
 
I wanted to give you an update on the 1911 I purchased from you last May.  Stats have
improved greatly. I had a bad mag, and it does not like certain ammo.  However, it 
still is quite a shooter, best trigger I have ever experienced, and the gun is extremely 
accurate.  

See below for a round by round update.  Note that I do this for all my 1911's.
I took the "4 Day Defensive Handgun" course again at Frontsight in Pahrump NV in late 
April 2013.  This is a fantastic course for all skill levels, as the curriculum and 
instruction are exceptional.  I had "graduated" a couple times previously (> 70%).  
However, last time I shot a perfect score with your gun, zero down, with no dings on 
malfunction clearances.  This score, and your gun, got me  "Distinguished Graduate"
status.

A small percentage of students DG this course (> 90% required), and I not only DG'd,
but was the only student that week to shoot a perfect score.  I would estimate 400-500 
students in the 4-day that weekend.  I attached a pic of my official score target.  

This DG (Distinguished graduate) status gets me into the Advanced Tactical Training, 
which I hope to take next March.  Of course, your Commander will be at my side.
Pls know I have done a bit of reading on UA Arms, and freely admit that this 
accomplishment is small potatoes in comparison to his/your experiences and service
(which is most appreciated).  However, as a person who had never even touched a handgun 
until.....in an attempt to be polite...... "that senator" from Illinois became the POTUS. 
That is as nice as I can be when it comes to that individual.
Anyway, I wanted you to know your 1911 has served me well.  It has quite few character
marks now (see attached pic), as it has been in/out of kydex thousands of times.  I put
VZ grips on it w/ the super scoop, and put an extended slide stop on it to assist w/
emergency reloads.  Many thx for the quality product.  I hope to purchase another 
UA Arms in the future.
Thx again
