The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) announced this week that it will provide disaster relief funding to members whose businesses were blasted by Hurricane Harvey.
“We want our member companies to know that their trade association stands with them in these difficult times, and that this assistance is another benefit of membership,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF Senior Vice President and CMO, in a press release.
“This is in keeping with the monetary relief we provided our members in the Northeast after Hurricane Sandy wreaked her havoc in 2012, and to those in the Southeast following Hurricane Matthew in 2016,” added Dolnack.

Any gun shop, range or manufacturer that belongs to the NSSF should contact Member Services at 203-426-1320 ext. 209. A “Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund Application” is available online at www.nssf.org/relief.
“Funds will be available to NSSF members suffering significant financial hardship and unable to pay for critical and immediate expenses to resume business,” states the press release.
Additionally, the firearms industry trade organization “strongly encourages any FFL needing assistance with their physical location in the affected Texas regions to contact their local ATF field office regarding removal of firearms and ammunition inventory, ATF Forms 4473 and 3310.4, and acquisition and disposition records from those business premises to a safe location, as well as remedies for damage to or irreparable loss of these items and required reporting of such losses.”
