There’s a noticeable trend happening in the firearm industry. Of course gun sales continue to rage on. You can’t seem to find .223 or 9mm ammo anywhere. But the other trend is one revolving around giving and support. Firearm industry companies continue to rally around the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Smith & Wesson just became the latest company, announcing a $500,000 donation to NSSF.

Smith & Wesson Donates $500K to NSSF

The donation helps NSSF take the financial hit from cancelling the 2021 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. Cancelled to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the show provides a substantial amount of revenue for NSSF. To help mitigate that loss, several companies stepped up recently to give. Mossberg recently pledged $75,000 to NSSF. SIG Sauer made a $500,000 commitment to the organization.

Smith & Wesson pledged the money to help NSSF continue its efforts to advocate for and support the firearms industry. The company praised NSSF’s work on behalf of the industry.

“When the NSSF decided to cancel the 2021 SHOT Show, we felt it was important to show them that we stand behind them during these challenging times. Smith & Wesson fully supports the NSSF and the work that they continue to do on behalf of our industry,” said Mark Smith, President and CEO. “The National Shooting Sports Foundation is a strong advocate for the Second Amendment and helps promote hunting and the shooting sports. Smith & Wesson is proud to have donated over $1 million in 2020 to support their efforts.”
