Safety Statement


America’s love for firearms is one of our greatest and most treasured expressions of freedom. And we all know freedom isn’t free, it comes at a price. In the case of firearms, it comes at the price of great responsibility. So, let’s agree to keep a couple things in mind; firearms safety is the responsibility of everyone, firearms accidents can be fatal and final, firearms are not to be feared but must always be respected.

Brenton USA takes both our freedoms and our responsibilities very seriously and we encourage you our valued customer and hunting buddy to consider the following safety precautions whenever you are around firearms.
