New Knife Supports Shooting Sports in the United States.
OREGON CITY, Ore. – Benchmade Knife Company is pleased to announce a partnership with USA Shooting in order to help in their mission of preparing American athletes to win Olympic medals and promote shooting sports throughout the United States.
These USA Shooting Team Exclusive knives feature Benchmade's patented AXIS® locking mechanism, a 440C stainless steel blade with the USA Shooting Team logo, and a blue glass reinforced nylon handle. The 527BK-USA and 527SBK-USA will be offered at $105. A portion of the proceeds from every unit sold will be donated to the USA Shooting Team.
Founded in 1995, USA Shooting is dedicated to furthering the sport of shooting and supporting athletes and members of the organization. Shooting remains a competitive sport in the United States with nearly 20 million target shooters. The Olympic Games has become a successful event for American shooters, with over 100 Olympic medals won by the United States.
“As a 501c3 non-profit organization, USA Shooting relies on support from those who take a strong interest in the development of the U.S. Shooting Team,” says Buddy DuVall, Executive Director of the USA Shooting Team Foundation. “As our program continues to grow, we are excited and optimistic about the sponsorship efforts from Benchmade.”
USA Shooting is headquartered at the Olympic Training Center (OTC) in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Located on the OTC campus, the Olympic Shooting Center was built in 1985 and is used for elite and resident athlete training, competitions, national championships, coaching seminars, camps, committee meetings and local clubs. Approximately 25 resident and day-use athletes train at the OTC during the year.
The Shooting Center is the largest indoor shooting facility in the Western Hemisphere and the third largest in the world. Three separate ranges provide 29 firing points from 50 meters and 73 firing points from 10 meters for training and competitions. It also houses the administration offices, a gunsmith room and locker rooms for resident and visiting athletes.
“Benchmade takes great pride in supporting American athletes and manufacturing quality, USA-made products,” says Rob Morrison, director of Marketing for Benchmade Knife Company. “We are very excited about the partnership with USA Shooting.”
