"Jared Sloane joined the industry on a whim when he helped his parents open their award-winning, three-store chain of Shoot Smart ranges in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in 2010. Sloane is not a traditional shooter and didn’t hunt or sport shoot until he came into the business. However, he has learned why the industry remains relevant and holds importance to our heritage and culture. With a background in politics and firefighting, he believes those skills have come in handy over the years as their business has navigated various national political cycles and crises, most recently the coronavirus pandemic.
As a founding member of Shoot Smart, Sloane has served in almost every role in the company and done nearly every job, from answering phones, fixing guns, and cleaning bathrooms to developing compliance programs, producing animated videos, and coaching the range’s leadership team. As operations director, he is now responsible for managing Shoot Smart’s three locations, as well as inventory operations and marketing. Sloane has been specifically focused on marketing efforts to attract the next generation of shooters, and has spoken on the topic on behalf of NSSF for several years. He has been a member of the NSSF Range Advisory Council since 2015, and has also been a member of the NSSF Range Expo Committee."
