Hi everyone! I just started at NK this month and will be the new official NK blogger. While I’m learning about all of the neat and exciting products that NK offers, I wanted to introduce myself to the friends and followers of NK.
In talking with several members of the NK team, it sounds like we have the unique opportunity to meet so many interesting people involved in a variety of industries who use our products. I must say, I am really looking forward to it! It is truly amazing learning how many people have a need for a Kestrel meter, whether it is for professional or recreational use. We also venture out into the different markets and hear firsthand what experiences people have had using their Kestrel unit.
During my first week at NK, I participated in a quarterly FBI Demo shoot in Fort Dix, NJ where a large group of local law enforcement go to check out new products and practice on the range. Many of the participants were seasoned Kestrel users with interest in learning more about our newest unit that has built-in ballistics software, the Kestrel with Horus. The experience was very exciting and I can’t wait to go back (hopefully my aim will be a little better next time)!
The next few weeks will definitely be busy for us at NK as we head into trade show season. We’ll be in Fort Benning, GA at the end of the week for this year’s International Sniper Competition and then in Annapolis, Maryland for the Boat Show next week. They certainly know how to keep things interesting here at NK!
In the few short weeks that I’ve been here, I have already talked to some of our wonderful Kestrel users. I had the chance to catch up with Tom from Maryland who used his Kestrel 4500NV with Bluetooth this month to aid him in winning 1st place at the ASC Fall match. By coupling the Kestrel weather meter’s environmental measurements with the calculations from Android’s ballistics calculator, “Shooter”, Tom took home the winning trophy. Later in the week, I spoke with Mick from Nevada who was looking forward to using his Kestrel 3500NV when he heads to China in November to base jump from one of the world’s largest bridges.
I’m looking forward to meeting our NK fans and users and hearing stories about how our products have helped make their job or hobby easier! If you have a cool story you’d like to share, please post it here!
