MidwayUSA founder and CEO Larry Potterfield has done a lot for the shooting sports over the years.
At the SHOT Show, he was recognized for all he has done. Potterfield was awarded NSSF’s Ken Sedlecky Achievement Award, which is presented to individuals who have distinguished themselves by their long-term commitment to the success of the industry and by their support of NSSF’s mission to promote, protect, and preserve hunting and the shooting sports.
Through its support of key conservation groups, NRA and youth shooting programs, Larry and Brenda Potterfield and MidwayUSA have been active participants in the shooting sports industry since the company opened its doors in the late 1970s.
“Larry Potterfield was selected to be this year’s recipient due to his most generous, unselfish, and unparalleled support of many worthwhile organizations within our industry which share our goals,” said NSSF President Steve Sanetti.
“Ken Sedlecky devoted his entire life to the shooting sports by actively participating in competitive shooting as well as supporting both women and junior shooters,” Potterfield said. “It’s an honor to be associated with Ken and receive this award from NSSF. We appreciate the support of our customers that allows us to focus on supporting shooting programs in the U.S.”
