Blackhawk tactical athletes Zach Rodman and Jared Halbert earned a first-place finish at the 2023 Tactical Games South Carolina Team Event, held at the Sawmill Training Complex from April 17-18.

Similar to individual Tactical Games events in terms of structure, Team Events feature two competitors working together to complete multiple physical and marksmanship stages as quickly as possible.

On their way to a first-place in the Men’s Elite division, Rodman and Halbert were both running Blackhawk T-Series holsters and Foundation Series Tac Nylon gear, including plate carrier and belt.

“Jared and I have competed against each other since 2019,” Rodman said. “We first met on the firing line in Mississippi, and since that time have remained good friends. I’m more of a team orientated person by nature, so having Jared as a partner over the last two years has been great. Not only is he a great teammate, but as a former champion, he knows what it takes to win. I push hard individually, but there’s an element of not letting your teammate down that makes you push even harder.” 

The duo, who previously secured a second-place win when they competed together last season, have praised the Foundation Series and T-Series holsters as a big contributor to their success both in individual and team competitions. 

“The Foundation Series Plate Carrier is very minimalist but still holds standard sized plates,” Halbert said. “This design makes it easy to traverse obstacles where other plate carriers would get caught-up. Plus, the removable placard options have proven to be great for mission specific loadouts. Likewise, I’m also pretty particular about holsters, and the T-Series is not only fast, but it also retains the pistol through any kind of movement.”
