Economic Impact

The National Sports Shooting Foundation has numbers that suggest that the shooting industry has an economic impact over $27 billion (USD) and grew last year in the face of recession.
“During difficult economic times and high unemployment rates nationally, our industry actually grew and created 16,800 new, well-paying jobs,” said NSSF President Steve Sanetti. “Our industry is proud to be one of the bright spots in this economy.”
Well done, guys!

Hat tip, Say Uncle.
