In the fall of 2020, our co-founder Erik Mossberg was faced with a life changing event of lower leg amputation. A difficult decision driven due to increasingly painful and life threatening side effects of injuries suffered serving our country. While building this business and attending to his young family this event threw Erik's world upside down. With mounting unexpected bills adding to life's stresses many friends, family and organizations stepped up to help. None like Hometown Hero Outdoors. We at Best Defense have been passionate about their cause since day 1 and supported them in every way a young business can. To see them step up for one of our very own, we knew we had to give back. A PORTION OF ALL REVENUE from the use and rental of our +VIP Clubroom in 2021 will go back to Hometown Hero Outdoors. Click below to find out more about this incredible organization.
