    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.
  2. Glock and Remington have sponsored NASCAR drivers.

    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.

    to go alittle farther on this i've wondered why the major gun cos. don't have ads on tv..... it would be great to see a s&w or ruger or remington commercial!

    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.
