ATLANTA, Georgia (May 2, 2017) – Brownells’ NRA Annual Meeting & Exhibits special guest Matt Uhrin – also known as the famous flag-saving “FedEx Guy” – was honored by Brownells CEO Pete Brownell during a presentation in the Brownells booth on Saturday, April 29, 2017.

Uhrin, an Iowa City, Iowa-area package delivery man, was recognized for his patriotism and courageous actions for intervening in a late-January 2017 protest where demonstrators were preparing to burn American flags. A U.S. Army combat veteran, Uhrin, who had sent fallen brothers and sisters home from the Mid-East under America’s symbol of freedom rushed into the crowd of protestors, bravely saving three American flags.

In recognition of his actions, Brownells CEO Pete Brownell presented Uhrin with the one-of-a-kind Brownells/Smith & Wesson® All American Dream Gun®. The firearm is a highly-customized Smith & Wesson M&P® M2.0™ 9mm pistol and features, most appropriately, an American Flag paint scheme.

“Matt is a shining example of a patriot, local hero and a real American,” said Brownell. “Too many times we see indifference in society; it’s just great to see someone bold enough to do the right thing. I want to thank Matt for his service to our country both at home and abroad and I’m proud to give him this fantastic firearm.”

    I have two idling “shopping carts” for my most recent build. Two great companies, similar pricing, same products.

    My money will go to Brownells. For this.
