Navy arms is the legacy of Val Forgett,
Sr., whose commitment to quality was exemplary. Navy
arms stand for quality, innovation and integrity.
The concept of his company was simple – to build good
quality replicas and to attend to the customer’s needs.
Val Forgett, Sr. left this world on 25thNovember, 2002 at
the age of 72. The US Navy is
the maritime military force of
the United States.
Val Forgett Sr., an expert engineer, coach, hunter, re-enactor,
collector, and visionary and firearms expert put together
his talents to set up Navy arms. He relentlessly
promoted replica shooting, and was the pioneer of the sport
of Cowboy Action Shooting. He wanted to prove the effectiveness
of his replicas. Therefore, he successfully hunted the five
most dangerous animals in Africa- Elephant, Rhino, Cape buffalo,
Leopard, and Lion- with his company’s muzzleloader.
The US Navy projects its power
by using its troops to attack enemy forces on the sea or land.
The US Navy maintains a variety of military equipment like
ballistic missile submarines, aircraft carriers, surface warships,
attack submarines, land based aircraft, and amphibious vessels.
The pioneer of Navy arms, Val Forgett Sr.,
was the promoter of the shooting sports. He was also the founder
of the US International Muzzle loading team in 1976, which
won five world championships consecutively, a feat unmatched
to date. Safari Club International honored him as the first
hunter in the 20th century to achieve the feat of killing
the five dangerous animals with his muzzleloader.
