FMG Publications is proud to announce it was recently approved for Voting Membership in the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for America’s firearms industry. To become NSSF Voting Members, industry-related companies undergo a detailed evaluation and must be approved by the foundation’s Board of Governors.

“We have supported the mission of NSSF for decades, dating to the days in the early ’60s when industry leaders were meeting to consider forming the foundation,” said Tom von Rosen, FMG President. “We have exhibited at every NSSF SHOT Show, heavily promoted NSSF programs and have been NSSF Supporting Members for many years. Applying for Voting Member status was a logical and important step for our company.”

FMG’s support of NSSF includes raising money at the publishers’ annual Shooting Industry Masters, an industry-only shooting event.

“I can’t think of a better or more generous partner than FMG Publications. They have given nearly $300,000 toward our First Shots program, which is so vital for the future of firearms ownership on this nation, and it is completely fitting that they formally join the ranks of the strongest supporters of the NSSF by becoming Voting Members,” said Steve Sanetti, NSSF president and CEO.

In 2013, NSSF presented FMG Publications its highest honor, the Ken Sedlecky Lifetime Achievement Award, in recognition of its support of the First Shots program. Molde emphasized the importance of supporting NSSF’s mission: “To promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports.”

“The industry is undergoing continuous attacks from anti-gun politicians and organizations. NSSF is the Voice of the Industry and we all must support its efforts on behalf of all our businesses. We encourage all industry related companies to support NSSF by becoming Supporting Members and applying for Voting Membership,” said Randy Molde, FMG VP of business development.

FMG Publications publishes American Handgunner Magazine, GUNS Magazine, eight Special Editions, Shooting Industry Magazine, online digital editions, plus additional online and video content.
