On the heels of a year where new hunter participation increased dramatically and more than 8 million people became first-time gun owners, Nosler has announced plans to launch their new “Project 48” initiative designed to welcome, engage and educate this record number of new shooting sports enthusiasts. Social media powerhouses, Tim Kennedy and Colion Noir, have been revealed as the company’s first partners to lead efforts behind the mission.
The partnerships bring together two of the industry’s most eminent 2A activists and shooting sports enthusiasts with the trusted leader in premium ammunition, bullets and rifles. In collaboration with Nosler, both Kennedy and Noir will utilize their significant social media platforms to reach new shooters and deliver content that resonates with the growing shooting sports community. Project 48 content will cover a broad range of topics including firearm safety and maintenance, shooting drills, information on 2A legislation and tips for new hunters.

In addition to social media, Colion appears regularly as a FOX News commentator on the issue of gun rights.
