The Kids S.A.F.E. Foundation (KSF) is one of those organizations that I love to follow. They’re doing such great work with getting out and about into the communities, and teaching much needed firearm safety to youths. The continued success of KSF has found them celebrating their 5th anniversary last year, as well as trips to Hawaii. The KSF embraces their motto, which they live by; ZERO firearm accidents is the only acceptable goal!!® From the press room, KSF recently announced that they have a new partner, HUXWRX Safety Co., who’s made some generous donations to the organization.
The Kids S.A.F.E. Foundation is excited to announce that HUXWRX Safety Co. has donated (4) Rad 22 suppressors to kick off our latest Kids S.A.F.E. Foundation fundraiser 2022. This is the first part of the “Teen Project.” We are hoping to raise enough funds to upgrade the rifles that we use to educate the students and help with the development and implementation of our new “Teen Rifle and Pistol” Classes. The rifles we use currently have been in service for nearly 6 years and it’s time to upgrade as we continue to expand. It is our goal to transfer the rifles we use currently to Hawaii for use with the KSF Hawaii chapter. The HUXWRX donation of their innovative and quality suppressors will help tremendously with the safety of the students, by helping to protect their hearing. This investment in the Kids S.A.F.E. Foundation will help give our organization the tools needed to continue to grow and reach more families. This donation shows great responsibility from a manufacturer by supporting a kids firearm safety organization.
The success of programs like KSF require donations of time, money, and supplies. HUXWRX Safety Co. has provided in a way that’s impactful to KSF’s ability to teach and train youth.
Some of KSF’s background:
Since the founding of the Kids S.A.F.E. Foundation, back in 2016, we have reached over 25,000 kids in 5 states and taught them lifesaving skills. The Teen Project fundraiser will help us purchase the equipment necessary to implement (2) new classes geared towards teenagers. The goal is to further promote responsible gun ownership, safety, and to encourage the next generation to get involved in the shooting sports. The new Teen classes will focus on safety, safe gun handling, and marksmanship. Teenagers are future voters and it is important as a community we engage with them and teach them these valuable life skills and traditions.
I had a chance to catch up with Derek LeBlanc, the founder and head of KSF. He’s excited and grateful for this donation of resources and commitment to teaching youth firearm safety. He had the following to say:
We are thankful for the support that we received from HUXWRX. Their investment in our program helps us with the next evolution of kids firearm safety. Teens are future gun owners and future voters, teaching them about the responsibilities that are required for both is an important part of what we do.
It shows great responsibility as a manufacturer to support our mission to protect children.
HUXWRX Safety Co. is a leader in the manufacture of suppressors. They were…
…originally introduced in 2009 as OSS. In 2021 they transitioned from OSS to HUXWRX Safety Co. in a continued effort and commitment to build quality safety systems to protect their customers. Their design and technology is truly innovating by helping increase the safety of the user by lowering the decibel level of the gun shot but by also limiting the amount of gas directed back towards the shooter’s face. They have quickly become the gold standard for suppressor designs. We are thankful for their support. Please stay tuned for future updates as we continue the roll out of this project. ZERO firearm accidents is the only acceptable goal!!®
It’s been exciting to watch KSF grow and spread their message throughout the north west, and now across the Pacific. The extraordinary work that’s getting done in the way of educating our youth is a true investment in our future, as well as the future of our Second Amendment. Hat tip to LeBlanc, his team at KSF, and HUXWRX Safety Co. for being committed to such a worthy cause. Looking forward to seeing what else may come with the future of KSF.
