From Kimber . . .
Kimber Mfg. is donating nearly $43,000 to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) in an effort to provide support to the organization during one of its most trying times in recent history, including the cancellation of the 2021 SHOT Show.
The donation will help NSSF continue carrying out the organization’s operations, which promote and protect the rights of gunowners across the country, as well as increase firearm-training availability, hunting and conservation, general firearm safety, and other initiatives pertaining to the Second Amendment and the firearms industry. The NSSF also hosts SHOT Show, and has 13,000 members, including Kimber Mfg., making it one of the most significant organizations in the firearms industry.
“As the firearms trade association, the NSSF is crucial to both the firearms and outdoor-recreation industries. Kimber is a proud member of the NSSF, and as such, we are delighted to provide our support,” said Leslie Edelman, CEO and owner of Kimber. “Without the organization’s continued commitment to our industry, we very likely wouldn’t have the freedoms that we have today as Americans. And based on recent events, the NSSF’s efforts are needed now more than ever.”
“NSSF is very thankful to have the support of industry leaders like Kimber,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF’s President and CEO. “Our industry is facing extraordinary challenges this year, and this generous donation from Kimber will greatly help in carrying out NSSF’s critical work on behalf of our industry.”
