Potterfields Donate $100K to NRA After M855/SS109 Decision
Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, will make a $100,000 donation to the NRA/ILA National Endowment for the Protection of the Second Amendment. The donation is being made in honor of NRA/ILA's hard work in rallying NRA members and Congress to combat the ATF's proposed changes to the M855/SS109 ammo exemption framework. The donation also celebrates ATF's recent decision to refrain from seeking to issue a final framework at this time.
The Potterfields have also announced the Two Twenty Three Challenge. Issued specifically to organizations in the Outdoor and Shooting Sports Industry, the challenge is for each organization to have their own celebration and to make a contribution to NRA/ILA National Endowment for the Protection of the Second Amendment, at whatever financial level is appropriate.
"We're calling on all of the leaders in our industry to accept this challenge," said Larry Potterfield, Founder and CEO of MidwayUSA. "Manufacturers, distributors, dealers, gun clubs and Key Conservation Groups all have an opportunity to celebrate and contribute to what the NRA/ILA and NRA members have helped make happen. Make a donation, write a Facebook post, issue a press release and get the word out that we sincerely support and appreciate the work the NRA/ILA and its members are doing to protect the Second Amendment."

I just received my latest purchase from MidwayUSA. They are fast to ship even when backlogged with orders. Please consider Midway on your next purchase. Highly recommended!

Larry Potterfield puts his money where his mouth is. The man has probably one of the largest private firearms collection in the world. He keeps most of them at Midway in gorgeous displays around the headquarters building. The place is amazing!

I order from Midway quite often. They have some really good sales to take advantage of now and then also.
Just placed another order with them Sunday evening on mags for an 80's era pistol of mine.
This is an outfit that I'm happy to support with my money. And their NRA Roundup is a great idea.
