    1. Its great to see fellow 2A companies supporting great organizations like the NRA. I know that in 2013 we were on of the TOP 10 recruiters for the NRA and it was pretty satisfying to know that we were doing our part to support. We have a massive legal battle ahead of us and the continued support of 5013C companies is imperative.
