The Story of a Little Girl Named "STYER"

We received a wonderful story recently from the McGlades about their daughter "Styer" named after our company. Please read the letter they sent us below!
The Story of a Little Girl Named "STYER"

“My wife and I had our first child roughly three years ago on March 24th. One huge topic of discussion was always the child's name. We knew that we wanted something unique, but also something that would (low key) show our appreciation for firearms. So, as the time drew near we narrowed it down. Our choices were Styer--most folks don't know the true pronunciation, so we spelled it this way to help her--or Benelli. This ended up literally being a last minute decision. Once she was born the doctor asked us, "So, what is her name?" My wife and I looked at each other in that moment, and said "Styer" at the same time. Of course the doctor and nurses looked kind of puzzled, as it’s not a very common name.

"Fast-forward almost three years. We get so many compliments everywhere we go, not only because she is a beautiful, smart, and a polite little girl, but also that when people hear her name their eyes light up. They are thrilled that such a unique name goes with such a great little girl. Of course the following question is, "Where did you come up with that?!" So I tell the story of our love for firearms and about your brand. This last weekend I was with a close family friend who is also one of your diehard Steyr customers, and he convinced me to share our story with you.

"We recently took Styer to the range for the first time, and she LOVED it! We didn't allow her to shoot yet of course, but we hope in the near future we can get her started in the sport that we admire so passionately. One day we even hope to purchase a Steyr of her own, so she will own a firearm with the same name.”

It's so incredible to hear about all the people we've touched through our brand. If you want your share your fan story, please send it to We'd love to hear from you!
