NEWTOWN, Conn. — NSSF®, the firearm industry trade association, is pleased to announce that Geissele Automatics will be donating 250,000 face masks and Otis Technology will be supplying more than 52,500 bottles of hand sanitizer for distribution during the 2022 SHOT Show®.

“All of us here at NSSF appreciate Geissele Automatics and Otis Technology for their commitment to the health and safety of our attendees and exhibitors,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer. “As a result, complimentary face masks and hand sanitizer will be available to all SHOT Show participants. Pick up face masks or hand sanitizer ​​at kiosks located all around the show so the industry can gather with confidence.”

“Geissele Automatics is proud to be the official mask sponsor of the 2022 SHOT Show. We were happy to partner with the NSSF to help facilitate a safe in-person environment,” said Joe Plunkett, Geissele Automatics Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “We are looking forward to seeing our industry family, friends and customers face to face again.”

“At the onset of the pandemic, we temporarily pivoted our core business and focus to hand sanitizer and other forms of PPE. This was to address a desperate and immediate need from many of our core defense customers. Out of that initiative, we made a commitment to continue support wherever we can with these products. We are proud to donate these products to the NSSF and help keep our industry partners and friends safe at the SHOT Show,” said Heather Pleskach, Otis Technology Director of Marketing.
