Year in Review: All About Crimson Trace

We began our partnership with Crimson Trace in June 2021. During these past seven months, we introduced you to Crimson Trace’s pro-shooters, as well as some of its scopes and red dot sights. Following is a compilation of the posts … just in case you missed any. 

Crimson Trace is a manufacturer dedicated to producing the highest quality laser sights, tactical lights, electronic sights, and riflescopes for your pistols, rifles, and shotguns.

Sponsored by Crimson Trace

In June, I interviewed  Crimson Trace sponsored shooters Becky Yackley and Jennifer Blake. After they both shared their elevator pitches with us, we learned of their plans for the rest of 2021. Becky was hoping to make up all the shooting matches and classes she planned on instructing that were canceled in 2020. Jennifer was working on opening an Air BnB, then getting through kayak season as well as traveling to shooting matches. They both also mentioned their favorite Crimson Trace products and why they liked them. 

Crimson Trace Giveaway 2

We collaborated in a Gear Box giveaway with Crimson Trace in July. The Gear Box included a bunch of custom Crimson Trace attire, as well as a Brushline 3-9X40 BDC-Rimfire scope. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for a CT 2022 giveaway.

Before we began posting about the new Crimson Trace scopes, I wanted to introduce our readers to the two lines of rifle scopes it offers: a Hardline and Brushline. Not only did I highlight the two lines, but I also shared links to resources on the Crimson Trace website. They have a wealth of information that’s sure to help you in the process of choosing the best scope for your needs.

Next, Amy Ray reviewed the Crimson Trace Brushline Pro 3 -12×42 mm 30mm tube and CT BDC PRO reticle riflescope for an upcoming antelope hunt. Her favorite feature of this riflescope was its reticle. She looked forward to hunting and being able to adjust her holdover on the go with little to no thought.

Once again, Amy Ray was out on the range, but this time with her first AR-15. She put her recently mounted CT Hardline 2-7X32 BDC-Blackout scope to the test. Amy liked the clearly labeled dial. She was also impressed with the quality of the glass and the ability to fine tune the focus. While there, Amy solidified her confidence in the scope she wants to take on a hog hunt.

Becky Yackley gave us the scoop on the Crimson Trace RAD (Rapid Aiming Dot) after attending a launch event at Gunsite Academy. Many individuals and law enforcement are transitioning to red dot optics instead or, or in addition to, iron sights. Becky explains just about everything there is to know about RADs, including information she got right from the engineers who helped design it.

December was the perfect month for Jen Barcklay’s article about scope freeze. As a long-range shooter, Jen offers a wealth of information on distance shooting. She even created a custom reticle guide for the ammunition she is using for game hunting. 

Cold weather zero check

We’re looking forward to meeting up with the Crimson Trace team at SHOT Show (Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade Show) in Las Vegas to find out what new products they’ll offer in 2022. We can’t wait to find out more and share it with you at The WON.
