(MURFREESBORO, Tenn.) –Directed and produced by Kathryn Bigelow, The Hurt Locker was nominated for 9 Academy Awards and the winner of many others.

The Barrett M107® is in use with EOD units as a tool for long-range detonation, but is also used by law enforcement agencies and militaries around the world for counter-sniper activities, barricade penetration, vehicle stoppage, and much more.
