Bill Blowers

Based in Tacoma, Washington, Bill Blowers was first introduced to pistol shooting over 30 years ago as part of familiarization when he joined the US Army Cavalry Scouts in 1986. After six years in the Army, Bill spent the next 26 years as a police officer, of which 22 years were spent in SWAT, the special weapons and tactics team.

A keen teacher who enjoys passing on his experience, Bill has been teaching SWAT-related courses professionally since 2003, alongside running his own business Tap-Rack Tactical, LLC since 2006. For training, classes and carry, Bill chooses Walther’s Q5 and Q4 steel frame pistols, topped with red dot sights, and is currently using a Safariland 6354DO on a Blue Force gear belt.

Here’s what he has to say:

I’ve been using HDCC 9mm and 5.56 for about two years with no issues. Repeatedly above 95 on slow fire B8’s at 25 yards with pistol, and scoring 375 and better on a 400 point aggregate drill from 0-400 on B8’s. Reliability has been superb, accuracy phenomenal, customer service has been fantastic. I highly recommend HDCC ammo because the guys who make it also shoot it.

High Desert Cartridge company offers world-class ammunition at competitive prices.
