ATK names top 2013 dealers.
ATK Sporting Group has named Idaho's Black Sheep Sporting Goods its 2013 Overall Dealer of the Year. The retailer was honored for its 350 percent ATK sales increases, large expansions in accessory offerings and innovative approach to warehousing products, especially ammunition and reloading equipment.

Black Sheep's performance and its true dedication to the entire ATK Sporting Group family of brands make it more than deserving of the Dealer of the Year title," said Jim Bruno, ATK Sporting Group VP of distibution sales.
According to ATK, Black Sheep Sporting Goods dramatically expanded accessory offerings included Weaver Optics; Outers Gun Care equipment; BLACKHAWK! clothing and leather holsters and Champion shooting glasses, hearing protection and targets.
