Saf-T-Plug Ensures Firearm Safety at 2009 SCTP Championships
Franklin, KY, – Saf-T-Plug, a new and innovative firearm safety accessory has teamed up with the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation for this year’s event in Sparta, IL. Many of the 1200 young men and women from 12th grade and under who are expected to be competing will be spotted walking safely around the World Shooting and Recreational Complex with the Saf-T-Plug in their firearm.
Bill Christy, President of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation said, “For this year’s event, the Foundation chose Saf-T-Plug, a new firearm safety accessory that will be used by our shooters because we believe it’s a quality product providing added safety value to everyone who enjoys the shooting sports. Because of the continuing success of our program, we customized our Saf-T-Plugs to say, SSSF Rocks and ordered them in our Foundation’s colors, Carolina blue and a fun pink for the ladies.”
Tim Ferguson, product development spokesperson for Saf-T-Plug said, “Having this year’s competitors utilize the Saf-T-Plug will raise the profile of ensuring firearms are safe among all shooters, particularly our youth who are the ambassadors in this great sport.” The Saf-T-Plug is easily inserted into the chamber communicating at a glance the firearm is safe. As a manufacturer, we’re providing an extra precaution for safety in the field or at shooting competitions and that is paramount to all of us who enjoy the outdoors.”
Saf-T-Plug was initially introduced to the Texas Hunter Education program, and now has been successfully placed in over 14 states teaching the Hunter Education course. Tim commented, “We believe all outdoor shooting participants will recognize the importance of using the Saf-T-Plug and that it will become the future for firearm safety.”
Saf-T-Plug was designed to instantly promote safe firearm handling of all outdoor shooting enthusiasts. Lightweight, pliable and easy to insert, Saf-T-Plug fits 10, 12, 16 and most 20 gauge semi-automatics in addition to pump shotguns and fits .50 caliber rifles. The Saf-T-Plug, visible from over 100 yards, is available in Hunter Safety Orange, Hot Pink and Carolina Blue.
