Program Materials Center in the midst of its most successful year ever
Fairfax, Virginia - The NRA Program Materials Center is having a record year thanks to our dedicated and very busy NRA Instructors. Through the first three quarters of 2013, the National Rifle Association’s Program Materials Center has processed a record 46,000 transactions, selling 850,000 units of training materials.
The Program Materials Center is the NRA’s source for firearm training handbooks and videos, shooting aides, medals, program apparel and more. It stocks more than 900 items to help people both educate themselves on and enjoy their Second Amendment rights.
Year after year, the center's top sellers are materials for NRA's firearm education and training courses. Among those, the most sought-after items are for NRA’s pistol-based courses, predominantly NRA Basic Pistol, FIRST Steps Pistol Orientation, and Basic Personal Protection in the Home.
“Our Program Materials Center is an invaluable resource to the more than 116,000 dedicated instructors who ensure the National Rifle Association is the United States’ top provider of firearms training,” said Bill Poole, Managing Director of NRA’s Education and Training Division. “Without the support of our instructors, we would not be able to help so many Americans enjoy their Second Amendment rights in a safe and responsible manner.”
There's still two and a half months left to see just how big of a year 2013 will be. As the national interest in firearms continues to rise, our instructors will continue be at ranges across the country, teaching gun owners to be safe and responsible.
