Safe, smart firearm storage to benefit shooting sports programs around the US

SecureIt Tactical donates 300 Falcon Fast Box gun safes to NRA

Fairfax, Virginia - SecureIt Tactical, manufacturers of modular, component-based firearms storage solutions, has donated 300 Falcon Fast Box gun safes, valued at $100,000, to NRA’s Law Enforcement Division and The NRA Foundation, America’s leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports.

“We are very excited to work with the NRA to promote our shared goals of safety, security and personal freedom,” said SecureIt Tactical President Tom Kubiniec. “While the Fast Box is quickly being adopted by firearms enthusiasts and law enforcement, everyday citizens concerned about personal safety and security benefit the most from our efficient and practical solution to firearm storage.”

Donated Falcon Fast Boxes will be made available at select Friends of NRA banquets this fall and funds raised are expected to exceed the donated value. Proceeds will be distributed to local, state, and national shooting sports programs through NRA Foundation grants. Additionally, Falcon Fast Boxes will be awarded as prizes for Law Enforcement competitions throughout the year.

Friends of NRA

Fairfax, Virginia - Straight from the NRA's Event Marketing and Communications Manager, Nicole McMahon, here's an update on the Friends of NRA banquets coming up this next week.

Friends of NRA banquets are full of great people who support the Second Amendment and want to raise money for local, state and national shooting sports programs. Each event is run by our absolutely dedicated volunteers. Without their help, Friends of NRA would not be able to have such reach across the country or make as much of an impact on the future of our shooting sports heritage as we do today.

NRA's Wall of Guns comes to Indianapolis

Fairfax, Virginia - Wall of Guns, the popular NRA Foundation raffle you can find at the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits and Friends of NRA banquets across the country, is coming to NRA Headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia, this week.

Fairfax, Virginia - The National Rifle Association hands out millions of dollars in grants every year. Some, of course, are bigger than others. The purpose of each grant is the same - to promote the shooting sports. Whether for ammo or guns or travel or range improvements, each dollar helps at least one shooter out there get that much better as their craft.

Friends of NRA

Fairfax, Virginia - Friends of NRA banquets have brought Second Amendment supporters together for more than 20 years now under one goal: ensuring the future of America's shooting sports.

$8,000 NRA Foundation Grant helps shooting sports in the Texas Panhandle

Dallam County, Texas, 4-H Rifle Team receives NRA Foundation Grant

Dalhart, Texas - The Dallam County 4-H Shooting Sports Rifle Team of Dalhart, Texas, has recently benefited from Friends of NRA fundraising. On March 13, 2014, the local 4-H office received notification that the grant request submitted in November by a member of the Dallam Parent Leaders Association was approved by the Texas State Fund Committee and the Board of Trustees for the NRA Foundation, Inc.

Not only do these grants provide monetary support, but they also help to build valuable relationships within the shooting sports and Friend of NRA communities. Some valuable connections were made during the grant process this year at the local, state and national level. This year Dallam County 4-H Shooting Sports Rifle Team will receive a rifle and equipment valued at $8,343.21.

Under the instruction of Kelly McMurry and Martin Dettle of Dalhart, the Dallam County 4-H Shooting Sports Team, which competes in 3-position small-bore rifle, now has room to grow in numbers of participants and coaches. Our local team had one coach and seven members in 2013. We added a second coach earlier this year, and we hope to see our numbers continue to grow. The team will now have more equipment available for teaching and practicing and we hope it will have greater success in the upcoming district competition on May 9-10, 2014, in Amarillo.
