Rio Ammunition announces the launch of new packaging specifically to support the NRA

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

Irving, Tx. (August 20, 2018) – Manufactured in Marshall, Texas, the new Rio Patriot Pack features a distinctive outer sleeve design holding one hundred 12-gauge cartridges that are designed for wing and target shooting. The Patriot Packs also feature Rio’s commitment to the NRA’s mission. While the lines are being drawn and many companies in the sporting goods industries are withdrawing their support for the rights guaranteed in our Constitution, Rio is stepping forward to renew its support for the second amendment.

Rio’s proud support for the NRA takes two separate approaches. First is in a direct contribution of one dollar for every Patriot Pack sold through June 15th of 2019. These funds will prove crucial in the NRA’s various educational and legislative initiatives aimed at preserving our firearms rights for future generations. Second, Rio is working with the NRA to offer a membership discount of up to $40 if customers sign up through a special URL found only on the Patriot Packaging.

“By helping to fund vital NRA programs,” says Darrell Morrow, National Sales Director for Rio, “and by compelling our customers to sign up for an NRA membership, Rio is helping to ensure that the qualities of discipline, respect, good sportsmanship and loyalty, all key aspects of the shooting sports, are carried forward to the next generation of collectors, hunters and competitors.”

“We are grateful for RIO’s commitment to the Second Amendment.” says Todd Grable, Executive Director of Membership for the NRA, “It is critical to have partners who stand with all of us in protecting our Second Amendment rights and preserving America’s shooting sports heritage.”

Patriot Packs are produced in Rio Ammunition’s 105,000 square foot, state-of-the-art Marshall, Texas production facility. This facility, one of three operated globally by Rio’s parent company, MAXAM Outdoors, is capable of producing over 300 million shot shells annually at full capacity. This facility not only creates some of the finest cartridges in the world, it also creates solid American jobs in east Texas.

SSD Endorses Duane Liptak Jr for NRA Board of Directors 2018

Sunday, January 14th, 2018

I don’t do this a lot, but I’ve known Duane Liptak professionally for several years and when I found out he was running for the National Rifle Association Board Of Directors, I knew that he was the kind of representative we need as gun owners.

5F9140A2-E6BF-42B5-AD03-C34C545088FC

He’s a man who takes the Constitution seriously, and is committed to civil rights. A Marine Veteran, Duane currently serves as the Executive Vice President Of Magpul Industries.

He was instrumental in Magpul’s efforts to oppose Colorado’s magazine ban and their subsequent move from Colorado in response to anti-gun legislation.

In our discussions regarding gun rights, I have yet to disagree with him. Furthermore, he defends his positions with well reasoned arguments.

Duane Liptak is precisely the caliber of man I want representing my interests on the NRA BoD.
