The Defender Outdoors family of companies, including Defender Outdoors Shooting Center, Defender Outdoors Clay Sports Ranch, Defender Outdoors Argyle, and DefenderOutdoors.com, has officially decided to no longer offer YETI® products. This action is in response to multiple reports by the National Rifle Association that YETI® has decided to no longer continue doing business with the organization that has been the leader in protecting our Second Amendment and civil rights for over 100 years. Actions have consequences.
Defender Outdoors has long been a supporter of the National Rifle Association and Second Amendment rights. Defender Outdoors, with its focus on shooting sports, hunting, and firearm training, has also been a long-time retailer of YETI® coolers, drinkware, and apparel. The news of YETI®’s unwillingness to support the NRA and Second Amendment rights comes as a shock to the firearms community, and especially to other Texas-based companies in the outdoors industry. By removing YETI products from the shelves, Defender Outdoors seeks to assert that our Second Amendment rights shall not be infringed and show solidarity with the National Rifle Association.
For more information about Defender Outdoors or their commitment to support Second Amendment rights, please contact Andrew Sypien, press representative for Defender Outdoors,
ABOUT DEFENDER OUTDOORS: Defender Outdoors started the business in Aubrey, Texas after realizing that there is customer service void in the shooting sports community—particularly to new and female shooters. In 2013, Defender Outdoors opened its doors with three missions: to provide the best customer service, to provide all of our customers with a friendly and informative environment, and to do so at the lowest price possible. Since then, Defender Outdoors has expanded to two retail locations, a state-of-the-art indoor firearm training center near downtown Fort Worth, a Clay Sports Ranch, and an online retail store, DefenderOutdoors.com.
