New STI SHOT Offerings (SHOT Show 2016)

STI is well known for producing extremely high quality pistols right inside the great state of Texas, and at their booth they had numerous products on display. Here Patrick takes a look at a couple of their fancier models with some interesting bells and whistles.

    I’ve been shooting STI pistols for … um …15 years. Strayer-Tripp combined their design talents to create an excellent platform, and Dave Skinner provided the leadership to take this manufacturing company to the top of the field. They have been industry leaders in standing behind their product, and you have to work HARD to make them break!

    My partner and i have fired literally tens of thousands of rounds through STI pistols in practice and in USPSA competition over the past 15 years, and the only failures we experienced were due to ammunition (which we reloaded), or the amateur gunsmiths we allowed to work on the guns.

    So if the presenter in this video seemed ‘luke warm’ when singing the praise of STI designs, engineering or support, it’s because STI needs a spokesman who is more experienced in PR.

    Their manufacturing and design expertise is unparalleled.

    You have my word on that.
