Graf & Sons, Inc, The Reloading Authority is pleased to announce its official 2017 statewide sponsorship of Missouri Friends of the NRA by donating a Bushmaster Rifle to every committee.

“It is an honor to make these donations to all the committees.   By donating to these committees, we contribute to and sponsor a wide variety of shooting activities statewide,” said Marjorie Graf, Owner and Chairman of the Board.

The Friends of the NRA fundraise for the future of the shooting sports, with proceeds from events going back into the state for local grant funding. Twenty-five years ago, the first event was held in Columbia, MO. Today, Missouri has thirty-eight local committees and continues to grow.

“We are ecstatic that Graf & Sons chose to become a Missouri Statewide Sponsor for 2017. They’ve always provided tremendous support for our local committee, but having them offer such a monumental gift of support as a state sponsor this year is an unbelievable blessing to our Missouri Friends of NRA program.  It truly shows their commitment to both the future of shooting sports and shooters alike,” said Travis Scott, NRA Field Representative, Northern Missouri.
