Firearms Expo a “Blast”

Based in Columbia, SC, Palmetto State Armory is on a mission to assist people, especially in metropolitan areas, to be able to experience the thrill found in hunting, sport shooting and competitive shooting. The organization has scheduled firearms and education expos later this year in places like New York, Chicago and Washington DC.

Enter NBA All-star basketball legend, Karl Malone who began talks with the folks at Palmetto about hosting an event in the local area, citing his love for the outdoors, shooting and hunting.

The company agreed and joined forces with other organizations such as Nine-Line Apparel, Glock firearms along with representatives of the Lincoln and Union Parishes sheriff’s department. The Firearms and Education Expo was held Saturday, June 3 at the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office Rifle Range near Simsboro.
