This picture was taken at the 1997 Championships of the Americas in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Eddy Esworthy was a member of the USA Shooting Team from 1990 to 1998. He participated in International Rapid Fire Pistol as well as Air Pistol. During these years he traveled all over the world representing the USA in various International competitions and World Cups. Various International medals were won including Team Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals as well as an Individual Bronze at the 1993 World Cup USA.
Visiting ranges from all over the world while on the team gave Eddy knowledge and ideas as to how ranges can be built. Starting the company in 1991 while in college, Eddy has kept the business relatively small and dedicated to quality products that just work for over 20 years. After taking a break from competition shooting since 1998, in 2007 Eddy became involved in local IDPA competitions.
Cosmo is Chief Coordinator for Team & Customer Morale at Targetworx. It is an important duty, especially during long weeks of installations when the team is far from home. Cosmo takes his task seriously, enthusiastically wagging his tail wherever he is most needed. As the oldest member of the team - in relative dog-to-people years - he is the only one who is allowed to occasionally sleep on the job.

Lance has worked on the Targetworx team during nearly every range job the company has done. While being good with his hands, he's also great with customers. He is a real people person. If we do a job for you, I'm sure you will spend some time talking to him.
