North Carolina-based Blackwater Worldwide will be launching a new fundraising program to benefit the folks over at the Firearms Policy Coalition and their efforts to challenge several anti-second amendment policies across the nation in various states. Blackwater plans to support the FPC by donating a portion of its ammunition sales to the organization and bringing more awareness to the FPC’s efforts.

Blackwater Worldwide to Support FPC Efforts with Fundraiser
Blackwater Worldwide believes in what FPC is doing for gun owners and we saw a way to help fund the fight through the sale of our Heavy Hitter Sabots,” said Caleb Clark, Chief Strategy Officer for Blackwater Worldwide. “Our goal is to raise $100,000 or more for FPC to continue its aggressive litigation and advocacy efforts to restore the Second Amendment in California and throughout the United States.
Blackwater Worldwide’s “Heavy Hitter” 12-gauge sabot slugs come in a 5-round pack and are sold for $15.99. The slugs travel at an advertised velocity of 1875 FPS and feature a polymer-coated steel sabot that has devastating terminal ballistics on medium and large-sized targets as well as “outstanding precision” at distances of up to 60 meters. For every box of Heavy Hitter 12-gauge ammunition sold, Blackwater Worldwide will donate $1 to the FPC now through to the end of the year (2021). The FPC currently has a number of legal actions going on across the country that impact your fellow gun owners.
“We are delighted that Blackwater Worldwide is supporting FPC’s fight to defend and advance individual liberty,” said Lauren Hill, FPC’s Director of Corporate Relations. “Thanks to our amazing members and supporters, including the generous leadership at Blackwater, FPC will continue to aggressively defend and advance fundamental, individual rights and Fight Forward for gun owners in California and across the country.”
