Industry news SABRE Partners With NRA, Supports Cancer Research S ecurity Equipment Corporation (SEC), makers of the SABRE line of products, has announced a program to support the NRA and its continued commitment to training, education and marksmanship. SEC will donate a portion of the sale of SABRE NRA pepper sprays to the National Rifle Association. SEC’s SABRE products are used by military, enforcement agencies and civilians worldwide. Last year, SEC introduced a line of SABRE RED Pink Pepper spray to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). “We are very happy and proud to support the NBCF and its fight against breast cancer. Fortunately, the NBCF chose our most practical and popular SABRE product, which maximizes SEC’s ability to support this excellent charity and cause,” said David Nance, SEC vice president. A portion of the sale of the Pink Pepper spray is being donated to the foundation. “The NBCF reports that we have reached their Gold Level Sponsorship level and are one of their top 50 sponsors,” Nance said.
