Cimarron Firearms, recognized as the leader in quality and authenticity in Old West replica firearms, is proud to announce the opening of the 4th annual Cimarron Firearms Young Guns program and application process. The program for youths between the ages of 13 – 18 years old and members of the Single Action Shooting Society (SASS), will provide each of the four chosen Young Guns with a pair of Cimarron Uberti®Thunderstorm revolvers, as well as plenty of mentoring and opportunities as part of the Cimarron Firearms family.
“Cimarron Firearms is thrilled to once again encourage our youth to discover and participate in the shooting sports as part of the Cimarron Young Guns program,” Jamie Wayt, Vice President of Media for Cimarron Firearms announced. “For our 2018 Young Guns program, we are especially excited to have Uberti as our sponsor. Uberti has been producing finely crafted Old West replicas since 1959, much to the enjoyment of collectors and Cowboy Action Shooters the world over. We’ve worked closely with Uberti on many exciting projects since 1984. This is Cimarron’s way to give back to our youth through a program that helps kids grow in their sport while having the best possible shooting resources at their trigger fingers from Cimarron Firearms.”
“We are proud to be a part of the Young Guns program to motivate young people to take part in Cowboy Action Shooting,” Giacomo and Angelo Merlino, managing director and production manager respectively of A. Uberti S.p.A. added.
