From Hornady - Hornady® and HAVA Help Disabled Hero Realize Lifelong Dream

Hunting Bison with Hornady & HAVA Mullen, Nebraska - Spending six hours hunting for bison in a Polaris RZR in 7-degree temps and 20 mph winds may not be on everyone’s bucket list, but it fulfilled a lifelong dream for Matt Keil, a quadriplegic veteran who shot an 1,800-pound bison during a hunt organized by Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA). The hunt took place in February at Dismal River Outfitters, a 50,000-acre ranch in the heart of the Nebraska Sandhills.

Matt Keil’s life changed forever February 24, 2007, when he was critically injured while on a mission with the 3rd Platoon Able Company, 1st Battalion, 9th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division from Ft. Carson, Colorado - just six weeks after he married his wife, Tracy.

Wounded veterans take aim at the NRA Headquarters Range during a special shooting event

Fairfax, Virginia - Veterans Day is always special. At least it should be.

For most it's just a day off. An opportunity to sleep in, catch up on chores — make a lazy day of it. Most fail to understand or appreciate what these men and women went through. What they gave up. The sacrifice.

Navy SEAL and Special Ops tested NRA Backpack for the everyday user

See the backpack tested by the Special Ops guys for the NRA Fairfax, Virginia - Labor Day. The first Monday in September. The federal government officially recognized Labor Day as a national holiday back in 1894 as a celebration of the American worker. Today it marks the end of summer, the beginning of school and another opportunity to hit the stores.

In effort to combine all three, we bring you the NRA Dark Ops Backpack for Membership Monday. Here's the thinking …

A backpack goes everywhere you go. It brings your towels to the beach, your books to school and your shoes to the gym and your lunch to work. And that's just the beginning.

For what you can do with this backpack is limitless. We say that because it's been by the best — the Navy SEALs to name one. If they can take this into the field then you can sure as hell take it to the gym or the woods.
