Double-Alpha Academy is a company with a difference. It is a company founded on a vision: Promoting Excellence in IPSC shooting, and this vision remains our passion and our motivation. We are totally dedicated to the sport of Practical Shooting.
Our goal, and our passion is the development and innovation of new advanced shooting accessories for the competition pistol shooter. This is what we have been doing for the past 8 or 9 years, with ever-growing ambition and with, I am proud to say, much success.
Today DAA products are well-known to every IPSC, USPSA or IDPA shooter around the world. The business has expanded to a 6-man operation in a double story 700 sq m building. We have our own in-house workshop with a 4-axis Haas CNC machine and a state-of-the-art laser engraving and cutting machine. We are constantly working on new prototypes and products, and have several new projects in the works for later this year.
In 2012 we teamed up with RAK Systems, the inventors of the Mr.Bulletfeeder. Working closely with Mr. Koskela, we redesigned the Mr.Bulletfeeder, streamlining it for production and making it more efficient, more universal ? and less expensive to manufacture. We are now proud to offer the new Mr.Bulletfeeder by Double-Alpha and to handle the worldwide marketing and sales of this amazing product.
In partnership with Competitive Edge Dynamics, we continue to work and improve on the best range bags on the market. In 2012 we offered the all new CED/DAA RangePack Pro - the most professional custom-made IPSC backpack ever. This product became a runaway success, far exceeding our most optimistic expectations. The only negative comments we received were from those who felt the bag was too big for their needs. So we are very pleased this year to introduce the new CED/DAA RangePack ? the smaller brother to the RangePack Pro.
The DAA Racer line of holsters and pouches introduced in 2012 has been doing very well and receiving fantastic reviews. And now finally, we can offer a solution for mounting the DAA Magnet directly to the plastic body of the Racer Pouches. This is available now assembled as a pouch/magnet combo, or can be purchased as an upgrade kit for your Racer Pouch.
Double-Alpha Academy markets worldwide through a network of over 180 dealers and distributors. Our network is truly global, with wholesale and retail customers from Canada to New Zealand, from Brazil to the Philippines. We have over a dozen websites on our dedicated server, and fill orders from around the world daily.
I am very grateful to my fellow shooters and loyal customers who have helped us make DAA one of the strongest brands in our sport today. With your continued support and our continued hard work and innovation, we look forward to bringing you more exciting new products in the coming years.
On behalf of the DAA team, I wish you all excellent shooting!
