MISSOULA, Mont. -(Ammoland.com)- The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation accepted a $50,000 donation from Kimber in response to strong sales of the Kimber Camp Guard 10.
“We appreciate and value the support of our partners at Kimber,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of Marketing. “This donation is evidence of both Kimber’s support of our conservation mission and of a quality firearm that is valued by hunters and recreational shooters alike.”
Designed in collaboration with RMEF for use in the backcountry, the Camp Guard 10 is comfortable to carry. As a 10 mm handgun it also combines sought-after personal defense features in what is widely considered the best semi-auto bear cartridge.
Made of stainless steel and featuring a rosewood grip with a RMEF logo, Kimber set aside a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each handgun to benefit RMEF.
“We are proud to play a role in conservation and give back to our partners at RMEF,” said Ryan Busse, Kimber vice president of sales. “Kimber is a company of hunters and shooters, and of RMEF Members. We consider it an honor to provide the finest hunting and shooting gear to the people who are engaged in conservation and hunting.”
The Camp Guard 10 remains popular in the general market. RMEF also offered it to its life members and features it in its nationwide banquet program. It is one of RMEF’s more popular officially licensed products.

Kimber was founded with the singular purpose of building fine sporting firearms, better even than classics from the golden age of American gunmaking. Modern manufacturing techniques would be embraced and used to advantage, but assembly, fit and finish could only depend on practiced hands. There would be no compromise in features, materials or performance.
Rimfire rifles led the way, followed by centerfire rifles, then pistols and finally revolvers. Shooters and hunters were attracted by classic lines, dependability and accuracy. In turn, demand fueled growth and encouraged continual product improvement. Today more than ever, the reputation of the Kimber brand reflects the original purpose—and Kimber is known as America’s leading manufacturer of premium production firearms.
Kimber measures success by product quality and customer satisfaction—not sales volume or market share. After all, if you trust a Kimber for protection, carry one hunting or shoot one in competition, quality is everything. That mind-set comes naturally. From the top down, Kimber is made up of dedicated shooters and hunters who insist that their guns be the best.
Kimber quality has led to unprecedented demand. Organizations like the USA Shooting Team, LAPD SWAT and United States Marines assigned to Central Command chose Kimber. American shooters did too, in a big way, and Kimber has become the world’s largest producer of 1911 pistols. From Alaska to Africa, hunters have relied on Kimber rifles to take the trophy of a lifetime. At Kimber, quality will always be paramount and the true measure of success. This ensures a Kimber will continue to be the first choice of America’s best shooters.
