SB Tactical Announces Reversal of ATF Open Letter on the Use of SB Tactical Pistol Stabilizing Braces

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Saint Petersburg, Fla. (April, 25, 2017) – SB Tactical™, inventors and manufacturers of the Pistol Stabilizing Brace®, is excited to announce that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) has issued SB Tactical a reversal letter containing a sensible clarification of the Bureau’s position on the lawful use of SB Tactical braces.

The new clarification of opinion letter states, “an NFA firearm has not necessarily been made when the device is not reconfigured for use as a shoulder stock – even if the attached firearm happens to be fired from the shoulder. To the extent that the January 2015 Open Letter implied or has been construed to hold that incidental, sporadic, or situational “use” of an arm-brace (in its original approved configuration) equipped firearm from a firing position at or near the shoulder was sufficient to constitute “redesign,” such interpretations are incorrect and not consistent with ATF’s interpretation of the statute or the manner in which it has historically been enforced.”

SB Tactical, along with the law offices of Mark Barnes & Associates, have worked tirelessly for more than two years to correct what they believed to be an inaccurate interpretation of “redesign,” related to the Pistol Stabilizing Brace. “It has always been our belief that the addition of our Pistol Stabilizing Brace benefits shooters, both disabled and able-bodied, and that neither strapping it to your arm nor shouldering a brace equipped pistol would constitute ‘redesign’ of a pistol to a NFA firearm”, said Alex Bosco, inventor, founder and CEO of SB Tactical. “We are strongly encouraged by the ATF’s reversal of opinion and commend their willingness to continually review policy, including their own opinions, to ensure public safety and the fulfillment of their mission.”

Both SB Tactical and Mark Barnes & Associates are proud to be at the forefront of protecting and preserving the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans. Mark Barnes echoed Bosco’s praise of the ATF’s new guidance and stated that “it’s clear that the Bureau has no intention or desire to prosecute law abiding citizens using SB Tactical Pistol Stabilizing Braces. Their decision to act should be commended.”

Friday, May 20th, 2016

You probably remember SB Tactical for the so-called SIG Brace that was all the rage for AR pistols just a few years ago. Now, they have received a Favorable Opinion Letter from Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), for their latest Pistol Stabilizing Brace.

SB Tactical Announces Expanded Leadership Team

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

Jeff Creamer and Amy Pevear bring years of experience from firearms industry

Saint Petersburg, FL (January 28, 2016) – SB Tactical™, the inventor and manufacturer of the Stabilizing Brace™, is pleased to announce the hiring of Jeffry Creamer as Vice President of Business Development and Amy Pevear as Vice President of Marketing. Creamer and Pevear join the SB Tactical team from the highly regarded firearms manufacturer, SIG SAUER, Inc.

Today’s announcement marks a significant milestone for SB Tactical. In 2015, the company completed a critical transition from operating under exclusivity agreements with SIG SAUER, Inc. and Century Arms to selling directly to consumers through the SB Tactical online retail store. The addition of Creamer and Pevear will further empower SB Tactical to aggressively seek new original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partnerships, develop platform-specific offerings, expand distribution channels and cultivate a more robust consumer direct sales model. SB Tactical will be announcing several new Stabilizing Braces™ in Q1 2016.

SB Tactical innovates, designs, develops, and manufactures accessories for firearms and personal defense weapon (PDW) pistols. The initial product introduced to market in 2013 was the SB15® Stabilizing Brace, often referred to by enthusiasts as the “SIG Brace.” The product was developed specifically to improve shooting accuracy and reduce felt recoil when firing with one hand. That same year, the SB15 was named the Firearm Accessory of the Year and the Stabilizing Brace has since revolutionized shooting sports for those in need of improved stabilization and assistive devices.

“Jeff and Amy add unmatched experience and market knowledge to the SB Tactical team as we continue positioning the company for future growth and expansion,” said Alex Bosco, Founder and CEO. “Their presence will enable SB Tactical to further expand our market footprint and enhance our ability to develop and deliver innovative products.”

“The entrance of SB Tactical into the market in 2013 reinvented the dying platform of AR pistols, creating an entirely new category of firearms. The company and their product lines have redefined modern shooting sports, which is largely evidenced by the growing number of manufacturers that are developing PDW-style pistols today,” said Jeff Creamer. “Tremendous opportunity lies ahead for SB Tactical as the company pivots for growth and the rollout of expanded product lines in the future.”

“SB Tactical presents a unique opportunity to further develop a world-class accessories company in a fast growing market. Our team is excited to focus on expanding our product line, building a recognizable brand within the industry, and deploying business to business and consumer based market strategies that will drive sales and new product development,” stated Amy Pevear.
