Defender Ammunition Shooting Team
If you've been following us for a while, you know that over the years, we have sponsored several competitive shooters in their efforts to grow the shooting sports. In our opinion, growing shooting sports is critically important to preserving the right to bear arms and fosters competent and safe shooters.
In 2018, we had the opportunity to help members our military community in very meaningful and moving ways. We hope to do more of that in 2019 because, frankly, it matters. While these smaller, more personal efforts certainly don't make viral social media pictures, they really have a positive impact on lives. There are several fundraising efforts that are made by organizations that we wholeheartedly support. If you want to make a difference, please check out the ones we've decided to back and consider supporting their efforts.
Team Defender shooters are chosen based on criteria that fit our mission and values. In order to be selected, a shooter must have a military connection: be a military veteran, active duty or a military spouse. Shooters must have a clear plan to participate in competitive shooting and to assist new shooters along their path to get involved in shooting sports. They also must be directly involved in an effort to give back to the community in some way. Whether they donate their prize table winnings to a youth shooting club or participate in fundraising efforts for one of the foundations we support, they must contribute. We believe that there are enough "me-first" athletes in the world.
The competitive shooters that will represent us this year are:
Broc has just started his journey into competitive shooting through 3-gun events on the East Coast. After attending a "Three Gun Thursday" event at Delphi Tactical, Broc was encouraged and welcomed by other shooters and he shot his first match that weekend and has been hooked ever since. Now, he is making efforts to share his passion for the sport by encouraging others to give a match a try.
Broc is an employee at Defender Ammunition Company and is an invaluable asset to the fundraising efforts that we make for the individuals we support. We are humbled by his passion for supporting the community.
