In Honor of Veteran’s Day

In honor of Veteran’s Day, I decided to feature items that commemorate those that have served and those that still serve our great country.

Patriotic Ammo

Federal Top Gun Ammo
Federal Top Gun Ammo
Federal has released a special box of their Top Gun shotgun shells that benefits our injured troops. A portion of sales from each box goes to the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps service members who have service-related wounds, injuries, and illnesses since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Not only has Federal made a commemorative box, but also each shotgun shell is red, white, or blue. A random mix of our flag’s colors is in each box.

Federal specifically designed the Top Gun ammunition series for high-volume clay shooting. The 12 gauge, 2-3/4-inch shells are filled with #8 lead, 1-1/8 ounce shot. Each box has 25 rounds.

In 2009, Legacy Sports International, with the sale of their commemorative Puma M-92 lever action rifle, was able to donate $20,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project. In 2010, Legacy International sponsored a wounded warrior shooting team at the 29th Annual HOAG Charity Shoot. They continue to support our troops and those wounded in service by offering a commemorative Puma M-92 lever-action rifle.

This commemorative rifle features Wounded Warrior and United States flag etchings on the receiver and a laser-engraved eagle on the stock.

Chiappa builds the Puma M-92 to Browning specifications in Italy. John Moses Browning designed the original Model 1892. The Puma M-92 chambered for the .44 Remington Magnum caliber, features a 20-inch barrel, 10-round capacity, a walnut stock, and stainless steel barrel.
