CUSTOM KNIVES AND PISTOLS
Dear Shootrite Community,
Thank you for your generosity, your prayers, your support [both physical and emotional], and for loving and respecting Tiger as much as you do. Seeing this out of such a large and diverse group has been amazing and touched me so deeply.
I want to apologize for getting this out to you all later than I had hoped but, as you can imagine, these last several weeks have been hard to say the least. My life has been a steady stream of conflict between rational and irrational thoughts and behaviors. Death is not something I can easily rationalize and that would have frustrated Tiger a lot, he was not a fan of reactionary behavior as some of you may know but he knew how I worked and how to balance me, so he would understand.
When someone is suddenly and without warning ripped from the fabric of a life the holes left behind appear to be irreparable but repair you must. With each mending I see the broken threads that need to be knotted to new ones and those threads are reinforced with the fibers given to me by friends and strangers who care enough to see a new life go forward, you have given me those threads and I deeply thank you.
Tiger impacted every single person he encountered, either good or bad he left an impression, that’s who he was. He walked entirely to his own beat and never apologized for it.
Tiger was a man of great integrity and honor and believed at his core that honesty and trust were the primary traits of any upright man, everything after that just fell into place.
We reinforced the threads of our life together by encouraging each other in those areas and pushing each other to always learn new things and try, just try. There might be failure but, is it failure if you learn and grow? He didn’t think so. Ours was a life of constant learning and growing, this is what he believed God designed us to do and so he did it. He would always say, “When you stop learning you’re dead.”
Well, he apparently learned all he needed to and now it’s our turn to carry all he taught us and give it to others. Some of you out there had learned a great deal from Tiger, he believed when he learned something he had a responsibility to pass it along, so take it and give what you learned to someone else.
That’s what I’ll be doing as I continue to repair the fabric of a life shared with absolutely the best part of me, my precious husband Tiger.
SHOOTRITE founder and director Tiger McKee is a lifelong student of personal combat, and is one of the nation's top firearms instructors for armed citizens, law enforcement, military and security personnel.
McKee was awarded an expert rating with handgun and rifle by Colonel Jeff Cooper of Gunsite, served as an adjunct instructor at Thunder Ranch from 1995 to 2005 and for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Tiger's extensive experience has given him a prominent position and voice in the world of modern defensive training. He was a regular with Personal Defense T.V. and has written hundreds of columns and articles. Tiger writes a regular column on training and tactics for American Handgunner - americanhandgunner.com and a weekly column for The Tactical Wire - thetacticalwire.com .
In 2005 he published "The Book of Two Guns," a unique chronicle of ten years of training in the tactical use of the 1911 pistol and the AR-15. "AR Skills and Drills: Learn How To Run Your AR Like A Pro" was published in 2017. Both books have been extremely well received and are found on the bookshelves and range bags of dedicated shooters across the globe.
Shootrite provides instruction in the use of firearms for personal defense.
Our focus is on developing the physical skills needed to defend self and family with a firearm safely and efficiently, along with the mindset and mental skills necessary to solve a violent confrontation.
Tiger offers private tutorials for intermediate and advanced level individuals and small groups at Shootrite’s facilities in north-eastern Alabama.
Instruction is available for handguns, both semi-auto and revolver, carbine and rifle. Specialty classes are available by request.
Another aspect of Shootrite is the production of high-quality custom knives and pistols. Tiger builds a variety of different style knives, as well as custom order blades and sheaths.
Shootrite also does custom work on S&W revolvers. Our Chopper package, a wide range of internal and external modifications, improves the old wheel gun’s performance for self-defense applications.
