“At Sightmark we like to say, ‘Make your mark,’ But it means more than staying on target or even a clean shot on a magnificent game animal, the message also reminds us to make a difference in our industry and to be a positive influence in the lives of the people around us,” said James Sellers, Sightmark CEO. “Nothing is possible without good people being free to make a difference and the ability to stand up in defiance of tyranny. The Second Amendment not only assures our freedom, it ensures all other rights remain intact. The NSSF is about more than just shooting sports, hunting traditions and outdoor lifestyles. Supporting NSSF is a great way to continue to keep freedom and liberty in focus.”
Phoenix Weaponry owner and designer, Aaron Cayce, added, “As a precision firearm and accessory manufacturer, we take the Second Amendment, education, safety and our shooting heritage quite seriously. NSSF consistently pushes initiatives we can get behind, and this giveaway is just another way we can help make a difference.”
