Todd Jarrett Leaving ParaOrdnance

21-Jan-10 – 01:07 by ToddG

SHOT Show 2010 will be the end of champion USPSA shooter Todd Jarrett’s years as spokesman and sponsored shooter of pistol maker ParaOrdnance.

Todd is planning to start up his own 1911 company building guns to his specifications. Expect to see more about Jarrett and his company in the coming months…

  2. I was about to get excited until my mind raced to the price tag these champion guns will carry.

  3. good to hear. Never been a Para fan. Yet have always been a Todd Jarret fan, great instructor and helluva nice guy.

  4. I haver mixed feelings on this, I will be glad to see no more ads of Todd in A Tux with a Para PDA, or in digi camouflage with a TTR etc, it almost seemed like Para liked to play “What can we dress Todd Jarret as today”

    Looking forward to see what he can come up with, but not looking forward to the price.

  5. Five gets you ten his new company has nothing to do with fruity “LDA” triggers.

    It must have been physically painful to have been contractually obligated to pimp those things.

  6. Ha! I thought it, but Tam said it. I wouldn’t necessarily call the LDA trigger “fruity,” but then I’ve never owned a single-action 1911. I do doubt very much whether Todd Jarrett will be having anyone build anything but single-action triggers if he’s in charge.

    My other first thought was “What is Todd Jarrett going to offer on a 1911 that no one else is offering?” But maybe that’s why he’s starting a gun company and I’m not.

  7. Todd’s 1911s will have “Todd Jarrett” on them.

    What, that’s not worth an extra $500?

    And DAO is fruity no matter what gun it’s on.

  8. Linwood Firearms?

  9. Just for the record, Todd’s personal carry pistol is an early PARA model with a “fruity” LDA trigger. :-)

  10. Well for the record my Carry 9, and my Tac Five, both have really nice triggers, but the Gun Blog 45 has for lack of a better word has a “Fruity” trigger

  11. Gun Shy Tourist,

    Yes, I’ve met Todd. Even taken a class from him.

    Considering that ParaOrd was founded in ’85 and the fruity LDA trigger didn’t come about until the mid-’90s, I’d be interested in hearing about those “early PARA model(s)” with LDA triggers. Do tell.
