From Daisy Outdoor Products

Daisy Outdoor Products, the most-recognized name in airguns worldwide, announced a partnership with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to promote safety and education in the shooting sports to today's youth. This agreement makes Daisy the official airgun of the Boy Scouts of America.

The Boy Scouts of America, the largest youth organization in the country, in association with Daisy, will provide local councils and camps throughout the country with safety-oriented experiences and lessons that are both exciting and educational.

"There is no doubt that more people have learned how to shoot with a Daisy BB gun than with any other," said Daisy President Keith Higginbotham. "Teaching the basics of marksmanship and shooting safety, through one-on-one mentoring as well as structured programs, continues to be at the core of our mission.

"To be recognized as the Official BB Gun of the Boy Scouts of America and to be involved in this far-reaching youth shooting sports initiative is a huge source of pride," he continued. "Hundreds of millions of adults have been positively affected by Scouting, learning to become responsible citizens, developing character and becoming self-reliant. Involvement in the shooting sports develops similar traits, such as discipline, patience, self-control and responsibility."

This partnership makes Daisy's iconic inflatable ranges available to the BSA's 274 local councils as well as enhancing the shooting sports program at camp sites across the country. The inflatable ranges allow seasoned instructors to work individually with young people who may be shooting for the first time. Instructors emphasize shooting safety rules and teach basic marksmanship, including breath control, trigger pull, sight picture and more.




"As the nation's leading organization that brings outdoor adventures to life for millions of young people, we greatly appreciate the support and commitment that Daisy Outdoor Products is providing to Scouting through this important partnership," said Brad Farmer, Assistant Chief Executive of the Boy Scouts of America.

Ask any hunter or shooting sports enthusiast how he or she was introduced to the sport and the answer you're going to hear most is that it all started with a Daisy. Together, Daisy and the Boy Scouts of America will present a comprehensive shooting sports program that will build character while introducing young people to the wholesome sport of shooting.
