SIG SAUER Among Founding Members of New Airgun Sporting Association

Leads Effort to Legalize Hunting with Airguns in New Hampshire

SIG AIR, the airgun division of SIG SAUER, Inc., is pleased to support the newly created Airgun Sporting Association as a founding member. A primary focus of the Airgun Sporting Association is to strengthen relationships between state wildlife agencies and representatives of the airgun industry and to work towards legalizing the use of airguns for hunting and recreational shooting throughout the United States.

“SIG AIR is dedicated to supporting the growth of the airgun sports and to working to enact new laws to allow hunting with airguns using appropriate calibers for various species of game,” said Joseph Huston, Vice President and General Manager of SIG AIR and member of the Airgun Sporting Association Board of Directors. “More states are beginning to recognize that today’s advanced airgun technology allows for ethical hunting with airguns, and laws are changing accordingly. SIG SAUER worked with game officials and legislators here in New Hampshire to amend a bill to allow hunting of small game with air rifles, such as the new SIG ASP20 break barrel air rifle, and Governor Sununu just signed this bill into law. This is welcome news for current airgun enthusiasts and will help open the door to new hunters and shooters over time.”
