COLUMBIA, MO-(Ammoland.com)- Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, recently donated $524,250 to the MidwayUSA Foundation to benefit youth shooting sports.

A large portion of the donation stems from a 2017 matching program administered by the MidwayUSA Foundation and is further proof of the Potterfields’ commitment to provide sustainable financial support to youth shooting sports teams across America.

New for 2017, Larry and Brenda have committed to a 2:1 matching program, administered by the MidwayUSA Foundation. The program allows private donors to designate a specific shooting team to benefit 100% from their donation. Funds returned to Team Endowment Accounts that teams generate from MidwayUSA Foundation fundraisers are also eligible for a donation match. In 2016, the Potterfields’ commitment to the MidwayUSA Foundation match program and youth shooting sports resulted in their donation of over 2 million dollars.

The MidwayUSA Foundation is a public charity working to sustain the shooting sports industry by providing long-term funding to youth shooting teams. Shooting teams with a Team Endowment Account can draw 5% of their account balance each year to use for team expenses. The funds can be used for ammunition, uniforms, entry fees, travel costs and more.

    RIPOFF SHIPPING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Used to be a loyal customer but all I got from them was a run around when I complained!
    They actually told me at one point that I should have chosen a more expensive mode if I wanted reasonable delivery time.
    I live less than 600 miles from them and a small spring took 11 days and cost more than the spring to ship.
    I took the envelope to my delivering PO and the cost to send to them Priority Mail was almost half what they charged!
    Nope never again!

    I met Mr. Potterfield at the Wannenmacher Arms Show in Tulsa, one year. I said, “Hey, I have an account with you!” He was nice enough to stop and chat.He was quite surprised to be recognized. I suppose he thought that I had a complaint, but I did not. Turns out, we were in the Army at the same time. He is a very nice man.
