Magpul to Sponsor the Scholastic Action Shooting Program for 2019

The Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) is pleased to announce that Magpul Industries Corp. will be a Silver Sponsor for 2019.

Kelvin Walton, SASP Director of Development made the following statement; “we are thrilled to have Magpul Industries as a new Silver Sponsor of the SASP Program. “

Magpul was founded in 1999 with the intent of developing a simple device to aid in the manipulation of rifle magazines while reloading under stress. The company’s name comes from this original product called the Magpul®. Over the last twenty years Magpul has continued to grow and develop using much the same mission and process with a focus on innovation, simplicity, and efficiency.

Scott Reed, Director of Marketing for Magpul Industries Corp. added the following, “Magpul is proud to be part of the team supporting the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation. The SSSF’s commitment to youth development through shooting sports programs and its emphasis on building character make it more than just a firearms training organization for young shooting enthusiasts. Its focus on shooting skills and responsibility with firearms, combined with its emphasis on citizenship, are a great match with the Magpul Team’s values.”
