MIDWAY USA

continued from p. 63

Yet Midway's commitment to the Second Amendment extends further than helping
provide opportunities for youth, but also to the NRA for its programs and political
causes. In 1992 Larry began the NRA Round-Up program that asks Midway customers
if they'll round up their order total to the nearest dollar; if they agree-most do-the
change is placed in an account, and each year a check is written to the NRA. To date,
the NRA Round-Up program has generated $17 million to the NRA for vital programs.
Have you been to a Friends of NRA event? Larry started that in Missouri in
1992. Since then, these fun auction-events have raised $740 million. As you
can see, MidwayUSA, is a very dear friend indeed to the NRA's mission and to
freedom-loving Americans everywhere.
The Potterfields have stood steadfast for freedom for decades. "The
Potterfields' pioneering efforts with the Friends of NRA program, the Round-Up
program and their marquee sponsorships of numerous NRA Annual Meetings
over the years have been invaluable to our noble cause and Association," said
NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre. "Larry and Brenda have made an
indelible impact on our country by their immeasurable generosity. The 5 million
men and women of the NRA are truly grateful for all their efforts."

Midway In 40 More
While the company has experienced huge success, certainly Larry's made
a few mistakes along his 40-year experiment in business. "My first mistake
was probably locating the original gun shop outside the city limits, requiring customers to come to us, rather than our going to the customers," he said.
"Another mistake was too much investment in obsolete cartridges in the early
1980s, and another was the acquisition of the Fajen and Bishop gunstock companies in the 1990s."
Successful businesspeople, however, learn from their mistakes, and that's
why Brenda and Larry have confidence that MidwayUSA will thrive for many
more years. The crystal ball sure looks as if the company is in good shape, with
many talented employees and managers, many of whom are capable of running
the company when Larry and Brenda eventually retire.
"We have it all now-we take lots of time to hunt, to travel, for family and work in
between those events," Brenda said. "So we're doing what most people do when they
retire already." In fact, in 2015 Larry wrote a book of short stories about his myriad
adventures across the globe hunting, fishing and shooting with friends and family.
"We're a family business, and MidwayUSA is the family's largest investment;
so we think about my involvement a bit differently than if it were just a job,"
said Larry. "There is no 'set date' for me to retire; just the understanding that
it's inevitable, with continuous planning to help make a smooth transition."
As for Brenda, she's a passionate turkey hunter who enjoys hanging with
her kids and grandkids. In 2016, she, her daughter Sara and her granddaughter
Eliza each killed a buck on the same day. She plans many more days like this, in
addition to her work with the MidwayUSA Foundation.
So where do the Potterfields see Midway in another 40 years? "If we want
to continue to provide opportunities to our employees, we have to continue to
grow," Brenda said.
"I envision a young boy or girl right now, who has been raised right, who
will probably go to college on a shooting scholarship; he or she will emerge
and lead MidwayUSA into the next era and continue to support the Second
Amendment rights of all Americans along the way."
As for the company, it's planning a little celebration back in Columbia-an
open house and a few employee shindigs. A 40th anniversary book is at the
publisher's at the time of this writing. Business is rolling.
As for the rest of us, the next time you need a shooting or hunting product-
perhaps some 8 mm Nambu or, better yet, a new reloading press-peruse MidwayUSA's
website, then round up for the NRA. That way we can celebrate Midway's first 40 years
and our unique American freedoms-all at the same time.
