Henry Repeating Arms
was honored with the President’s Special Recognition Award at the 2017 NRA Board of Directors Meeting, which took place during the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Atlanta.

NRA President Allan Cors and First Vice President Pete Brownell presented Henry Repeating Arms President Anthony Imperato with a plaque that reads: "Presented by the National Rifle Association of America to Henry Repeating Arms in Grateful Appreciation for Distinguished Philanthropic Leadership. NRA Board of Directors Meeting Atlanta, Georgia. May 1, 2017."

In presenting the award, Pete Brownell, who was elected NRA President later that day, acknowledged there are many individuals and groups that provide the financial resources to help the NRA advance its mission. “Today we recognize a great patriot for his distinguished leadership,” he said. “In the spirits of freedom and solidarity at a historic production, Henry Repeating Arms partnered with the NRA to set a world record on November 14, 2016 with the 1000 Man Shoot. During this unique event, 1000 freedom-loving Americans joined together in Phoenix, Ariz., to simultaneously fire 1000 Henry Repeating Arms Golden Boy Silver rifles.” Henry donated the 1000 rifles that were used, and proceeds from the sale of all 1000 rifles were donated to Friends of NRA.

“And if that isn’t enough,” Brownell continued, “Henry Repeating Arms is also a sponsor of the NRA Foundation Wall of Guns, the NRA Foundation banquets, NRA Gun Gurus TV and supporting sponsor of NRA All Access.”  Henry Repeating Arms also donated 1150 Henry Frontier Rifles to be used at Friends of NRA fundraising events across the country.

“Henry Repeating Arms has proudly supported the NRA for two decades. This combination of cash, gift in kind and sponsorship contributions total over $2.7 million to the NRA,”  Brownell said, “This man holds a healthy respect for the company’s rich history but with an eye for the future. Henry Repeating Arms has the distinction of being one of the top five long gun manufacturers in the United States, and Anthony Imperato is ensuring that Henry Repeating Arms’ name continues to stand at the forefront of history and his generosity and desire to preserve our sacred 2nd Amendment is exemplary.”

In thanking the Board and all members of the NRA, Imperato told those present, “I accept this in memory of my grandfather who got started in the gun business in the police equipment business 100 years ago. And in memory of my father who was a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment and promoter of youth shooting sports, I’m thinking of them both this morning. It’s an honor on behalf of Henry Repeating Arms. Thank you.”
