Personally engraved knives from Chuck Buck for NRA Collegiate
Fairfax, Virginia - The National Rifle Association hands out hundreds of awards every year. Trophies, plaques, prize money and products from the shooting and outdoor industry find their way into countless winner circles. How does that happen?
"Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors," said NRA's National Collegiate Shooting Program Manager Tori Croft.
One of the first sponsors to step up for the 2013 Collegiate Shooting Program is Buck Knives.
Based out of Post Falls, Idaho, Buck Knives was established back in 1902 by blacksmith apprentice Hoyt Buck. Three generations later and their brand is synonymous with survival in the rugged American Outdoors.
Arriving in Croft's inbox were two knives for the 2013 NRA Intercollegiate Pistol & Rifle Champions — the model 119BKS Special and the Boone and Crockett Mini Alpha Hunter. Now for a description from the Buck Knives website:
119BKS Special - This classic large hunting knife has been a super seller going back some 47 years. Hoyt and Al Buck used to build them by hand in their two-man shop. Today, this larger hunting knife with a large clip blade for detail work, piercing and cutting in tight places for added control. 6" blade, Phenolic handle, satin finish with a black leather sheath.
Boone & Crockett Mini - The famous Mini Alpha Hunter with a heritage walnut handle bearing the Boone and Crockett Club logo. 2 1/2" blade, Heritage Walnut handle, fixed blade with a distressed brown leather sheath.
"As an added bonus, the knives were personally signed by Buck CEO Chuck Buck," Croft exclaimed. "How cool is that?"
The 2013 NRA Intercollegiate Pistol & Rifle Championships take place from March 10th through March 17th in Fort Benning, Georgia. If you're lucky enough to attend, or compete, you'll see the signs of Buck Knives and other sponsors to the program. Just remember ... Buck Knives got there first.
