OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – September 8, 2021 – Hoppe’s®, the No.1 name in gun care products, along with Champion® Range & Targets, is pleased to announce both brands have once again partnered with the Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) for 2021.

“Support from the shooting sports industry is a critical part of the Scholastic Action Shooting Program and our youth development mission,” said SASP National Director, Rick Leach. “When brands like Hoppe’s and Champion stand behind us, it shows our community just how important youth participation in shooting sports is.”
Designed to introduce school-age youths to the shooting sports and to facilitate their continued involvement, the SASP provides individuals with opportunities to participate in high-quality team-based sports.

In 1903, Frank August Hoppe mixed nine chemicals and created the world’s most effective gun cleaner. As a well-trained young soldier, Frank knew that gun care went far beyond just a clean rifle, but actually helped to ensure his safety while on the front lines of battle. Since that time, Hoppe’s has emerged as the leading gun care company, having grown along-side hunters, shooters and soldiers who depend on their firearms every day. It has remained the most trusted name in gun care by advancing and evolving technologies to meet those needs. From the ever popular and versatile No. 9 and the quick and easy BoreSnake, to the marvel of efficiency we call Gun Medic, Hoppe’s is the only name you need to know for firearm cleaning and protection.
