SIG Sauer, Kel-Tec, Credova, Rock Island Auction Company, Taurus and Davidson’s Gallery of Guns have partnered with the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) in an agreement to match $1 million in donations made to NRA-ILA through Nov. 15. Anyone who makes a donation between now and that date will have their generosity matched by the Partners for Patriotism program—effectively doubling funds available to protect the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

“These patriotic businesses are pledging vital resources to support and defend the Second Amendment because they understand that our right to own a gun in defense of ourselves and our families is on the ballot in November. By working together with such partners, our membership intends to defeat those who are trying to strip our rights away from us,” said Jason Ouimet, executive director, NRA-ILA.

Donations, regardless of size, make a big difference. Thanks to the generosity of some of the industry’s foremost, their impact automatically doubles at a time when our self-defense rights hang in the balance.

“Partners for Patriotism could not come at a better time,” NRA-ILA explained in the announcement. “With the presidential election looming, the stakes have never been higher. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris, have made their intentions clear: If elected, they will immediately work to enact gun control that could result in rifle confiscation, criminalization of private sales, tax and registration schemes, and elimination of a law that prevents gun companies from frivolous lawsuits.”

“If you’ve considered donating in the past, but never got around to it—now is the time,” Ouimet said. “A donation now has twice the impact at the most critical time possible, as every dollar donated goes directly to NRA-ILA’s political fight for America’s Second Amendment.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.
