Few people in America’s collective hunting and shooting sports community are more notable than NRA and SCI members Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, who for decades have used their business success to become two of the hunting and shooting sports industry’s leading benefactors. Last night they were recognized for their service and dedication during the 46th annual SCI Hunters’ Convention here in Las Vegas, Jan. 31-Feb. 3, taking prestigious honors with the C.J. McElroy Award.
Named for SCI founder C.J. McElroy, the award honors members of the worldwide hunting industry who have made tremendous contributions to the sport of hunting; achieved worldwide hunting excellence; demonstrated dedication to wildlife conservation; and have a history of service to the global hunting community and to SCI goals.

All things considered, is there anyone more deserving of such an award than Larry and Brenda Potterfield? The collective hunting and shooting sports community’s gratitude cannot be put into words as this humble duo quietly continues to work for the greater good, fostering hunting, shooting sports and wildlife conservation so that future generations will be able to enjoy our all-American outdoor traditions. Congratulations to Larry and Brenda!
