GunBroker.com Named Company of the Year by SHOT Business

Las Vegas, NV --(Ammoland.com)- GunBroker.com received the SHOT Business Award for Company of the Year at a Bonnier Outdoor Group breakfast January 18 in .
The award is presented annually to a leading company/organization in the shooting sports industry. It is based on community outreach and efforts to preserve the hunting and shooting heritage, as well as protect firearm freedoms.

SHOT Business Editor Slaton White presented the Company of the Year Award to Steve Urvan, GunBroker.com’s founder and CEO. The Bonnier breakfast was held on the opening day of the Shooting and Hunting Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show.

“It is particularly gratifying that a ‘non-traditional,’ or Internet, firearms business understands the principle of protecting a heritage that traditional ‘brick and mortar’ companies have so long supported. As more Internet businesses spring up in the industry, GunBroker.com serves as an example to be emulated in this regard.”
