I was watching the UFC fight Friday when I noticed that one of the fighters had a DPMS logo on his shorts. I can not remember ever seeing a gun sponsor before. Are there any other sports (main stream-non shooting) with gun company sponsorships.

She's not as cute as Danica, but I don't know if Danica likes Glocks.

ATK, the ammunition company, puts on shooting and several other events in my area for kids... they just had a shooting event for teens.

Pretty good guys, I know a few of them.

Tasco, probably the same reason you see very few commercials for motorcycles or paintball markers: most people seek these items out and the general public does not use them.

I'm pretty sure this was covered this in the thread you started in March (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=262388) and in another thread last month (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=269512).
