Taurus USA Increases Support of SASP

Taurus USA has continued its Platinum Sponsorship of the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) through the Taurus and Rossi brands, raising its total support of the youth shooting sports program for 2021.

“Participants and enthusiasts from all corners of the recreational firearm culture understand the personal value and lifelong edification that structured and mentored shooting sports can bring to America’s youth,” said Bret Vorhees, Taurus CEO. “The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation has made a positive, indelible mark not only in the lives of the many youth who have participated in the SSSF’s development programs but also on our industry. All of us at Taurus (and Rossi) are thankful for the opportunity to continue our support for this important mission and the Scholastic Action Shooting program, which enjoyed record participation last year and promises to positively shape the lives of even more youth in 2021.”

"Taurus has increased its total support for our program, and for that, we are incredibly thankful," stated Rick Leach, SASP National Director. "When we see great firearms industry brands like Taurus renew and increase their sponsorship, it's like a big green light for our staff to keep pushing forward. Through our consistent growth, we have accomplished some huge milestones, such as our National Championship becoming the largest action shooting event in the world. With the continued support from the Taurus and Rossi brands, we will continue to keep raising the bar for youth shooting sports."
