Blackhawk Pledges $100,000 to Support NRA Law Enforcement Activities Division

May 19, 2008  | 

Blackhawk Products Group pledged $100,000 to benefit the National Rifle Association’s Law Enforcement Activities Division (LEAD).

Blackhawk says the gift reflects Blackhawk’s commitment to support the NRA and to the law enforcement professionals throughout the United States.

“It is an honor for us to be associated with a company like Blackhawk,” said Glen Hoyer, LEAD Director. “Blackhawk is an icon in the industry, not only for their products, but for their support of the military and law enforcement officers—and now the NRA’s Law Enforcement Activities Division.”

The endowment to the NRA will enable LEAD to expand its successful program of training law enforcement officers to become firearms instructors through up-to-date, state-of-the-art gun safety and marksmanship education. Since its inception in 1960, LEAD has trained more than 50,000 U.S. law enforcement instructors.

“We have long valued our relationship with the NRA and have a great deal of respect for its initiatives, insight and traditions,” said Mike Noell, Blackhawk president and CEO. “It is a very natural fit for Blackhawk to increase its support through the NRA’s Law Enforcement Activities Division, and all of us at Blackhawk look forward to helping the NRA in any way possible to make a difference.”
