Springfield Armory Sells Masks to Support Non-Profit

Springfield Armory recently announced that it will sell masks with its logo on them during the COVID-19 crisis to help support Luke's Wings, a non-profit that lends aid to injured service members and their families. 

Springfield Armory will sell logo masks that are non-medical grade on their web store, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Luke's Wings, which provides complimentary airfare to reunite wounded, ill, or injured service members to their families. That charity-sponsored travel has been even more important with the travel concerns and restrictions since the virus crisis has impacted the country. 

“For so many of our beneficiaries, this means extended time between critical visits from loved ones as they recover at military medical centers across the country,” explains Lindsay Gill, Executive Director of Luke’s Wings. “As our nation cautiously returns to normal, warrior families are eager, now more than ever, to be reunited with their heroes.”

“In order to support our wounded, ill, and injured service members, it is critical to raise the resources needed to book these flights in the coming weeks,” Gill said. 

Springfield will sell masks in two-packs for $19.99, and customers who buy masks will be supporting Luke's Wings with an expected 25 flights to bring military members and their loved ones back together. Springfield has decided to cover shipping costs on the masks with code "MASK" at checkout. 

“We are honored to be part of an effort that can make a lasting impact on our military members and their families, especially under such trying circumstances,” says Stefany Reese Toomer, Brand Communications Manager for Springfield Armory. “It’s a gesture of gratitude for those brave individuals who sacrifice so much for us.”

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.
