June 15, 2017 – Grey Ghost Precision is proud to announce team shooter, Jeremiah Futch’s placement of 23rd in the Tactical Division at the 2017 USPSA Muti-Gun Nationals held April 14-16th, in Boulder City, NV.
This was the second Nationals for Futch, a 13-year veteran of the U.S. Army Special Forces with multiple combat tours to Iraq and Afghanistan and proven track record of leadership. He is currently the Head Shooting Instructor for the 1st Special Forces Group (A) and a valued member of the Grey Ghost shooting team.
Each of the firearms that Futch runs during the competitions has been manufactured or modified by the team at Grey Ghost Precision. Choosing to run the Grey Ghost Precision Light (5.56), with an 18″ barrel for his rifle during the competitions, Futch’s rifle choice isn’t the most common in the 3-Gun arena.
“My rifle is by far my best of the 3 guns I have. I also use a Remington Versa Max shotgun that has been customized by the GGP machinist shop, and a GLOCK24 with a 9mm conversion barrel that has also been tailored by the same team. Needless to say, the team at GGP is one that I trust completely.”
Futch is one of several active duty, Special Operations Military members the team at Grey Ghost entrusts their firearms with, to provide honest and real feedback.
With a number of prototypes in the hands of trusted industry partners and professionals, from Special Forces teams and instructors, Law Enforcement, competition shooters and hardcore hunters, Grey Ghost isn’t one of those companies who asks for help and then decide they’re going to do it their way anyway. The team takes every ounce of feedback, in conjunction with design and engineering, and the product you see come out of the box will be the result of legitimate evaluations and honest opinion.
“We make it a point to remain relevant to our customers by being in constant contact with them,” stated GW Ayers, Vice President of GGP. “Feedback is the most important aspect in design and manufacturing – and we realize how imperative it is to humble ourselves to know that. We are incredibly end-user focused; and with several of our products currently being deployed with teams in combat, our focus on the feedback from those who put themselves into harms way is the most imperative.”
Grey Ghost has worked hard to maintain a reputation in the industry that is second-to-none when it comes to class, work ethic and innovation. The team not only brings new products to the market on a consistent basis (they were among the first to introduce a new line of .308 at SHOT 2 years ago), but they ensure that each product that goes out the door is to the ultimate end-user satisfaction and perfection.
Futch, who trains year-round, returned from a deployment in the Philippines just 30-days before the match, and pushed hard in training to make up for lost time with the Grey Ghost rifle. Spending nearly 90 minutes, 6 days-a-week leading up to the match, Futch and his Grey Ghost rifled proved that the nothing can stop you if you train hard enough.
“Have Jeremiah as part of the Grey Ghost team is not only an honor, but is a truly imperative ingredient to how we as a company operate,” stated Casey Ingles, CEO of GGP. “Without professionals such as Jeremiah, we wouldn’t be able to produce the products we do, and be able to provide those who use them, the confidence to know they will operate when needed.”
Jeremiah Futch is the Head Combat Marksmanship Instructor for 1st Special Forces Groups (A) Special Forces Advanced Urban Combat Committee. He is a professionally sponsored shooter competing in USPSA, Multi-gun and 3 Gun competitions. Futch consistently places in the top 50 at multiple National Championships, and is currently the USPSA Washington State Champion in Carry Optics Division. His title sponsors include Grey Ghost Precision, Blade-tech, Vortex Optics and Rainier Ballistics.
