Blackhawk® Sponsors Tactical Athlete Jared Halbert

Blackhawk®, a leader in law enforcement and military equipment for over 20 years, is proud to sponsor tactical athlete Jared Halbert for the 2023 Tactical Games season. This season, Halbert is competing in both individual Men’s Elite events as well as Men’s Elite Team events with Blackhawk teammate Zach Rodman.

A former owner of The Tactical Games, Halbert has been immersed in the competitions since 2019, and prior to that was active in 3-Gun and a variety of other shooting competitions. Over the years, Halbert has racked up an impressive competitive resume, with two Men’s Elite National Championships in 2020 and 2021, 11 Elite Regional wins and 14 total Elite podium appearances.

“I had been working with the Blackhawk team for about a year before coming on board to shoot for them,” Halbert said. “Their professionalism and the way they treated their athletes drew me to the Blackhawk team, and I look forward to continuing the success that my teammates Zach and Ehea have started this season.”

Recently, Halbert and Rodman took first place in the Elite Team Event at the South Carolina Tactical Games. Last season, the pair took second place in the Elite Team Event at the West Virginia Tactical Games. Halbert also won first place in the Team Event at the Burnet Sniper Challenge.

Throughout The Tactical Games, Halbert has been running a full suite of Blackhawk gear, including the T-Series® L2C holster and Foundation Series Tac Nylon plate carrier and belt.

“The Foundation Series is my go-to gear for tactical games competition,” said Halbert. “The plate carrier is very minimalist, but so effective. With its reduced weight and simple setup, traversing obstacles is easy.”

Outside of competition, Halbert owns Texas Shooting Academy in central Texas along with two friends. He and his wife also own Rattler Crossfit in Liberty Hill, Texas.

“Don’t over think it, just sign up and show up,” Halbert said when asked for advice for prospective competitors. “The sport is for everyone and there is a division for all levels of shooters and fitness levels. Whether you started working out or shooting a week ago or 10 years ago, there is a place for you to have an unforgettable experience.”

About Blackhawk

In 1990, a Navy SEAL was navigating a minefield when his pack failed. As his gear tumbled to the ground, he vowed that if he got out of there alive he would make gear the right way. Today, this obsession with quality applies to everything we do. We’re constantly researching, refining and perfecting every detail to provide gear that won’t let you down. Because we’re not just making stuff – we’re honoring a vow.
