“Events and get-togethers like Black and Tan are needed for this small community of Rangers,” said Ray McBride, 75th Ranger Regiment veteran. “I think we need to stay connected and support one another in our current and future endeavors.”
Since 2017, The Darby Project has been actively involved in the planning and execution of Black and Tan Link-ups at SHOT Show and NDIA Special Operations Forces Industry Conference in Tampa each year.
"The Shot Show Black and Tan would not be possible without our sponsors, the United States Army Ranger Association and Ops-Core-Gentex,” said Bryce Mahoney, The Darby Project’s director and event host. “The Black and Tan encourages professional networking opportunities for our Rangers to network in a social environment, and is a staple of what we will continue to do for our Ranger veterans.”
