If you’ve ever used a shotgun choke tube, you’ve probably come across the name Trulock or at the very least Tru-Choke. Trulock Choke tubes have been a household name when it comes to shotgun choke tubes since their introduction in 1982 and many people and firearms manufacturers rely on them to extend and alter the patterns of their shotguns to great effect. It is with a heavy heart that we report to you today that George Trulock – founder of Trulock chokes has passed away after an ongoing battle with pancreatic cancer. George founded Trulock chokes in 1981 and brought his first novel choke tube system to the US market in 1982 with great success in the years following.
