I had read that these were going to be available but had not yet looked for them or seen them in any stores. The cause is a good one and I am planning to buy some but mostly because my daughter will think they look cool while she is shooting and maybe to give some to my dad just for a joke as he broke a bone in his hand lasst fall by not holding on tightly while shooting some 3.5 mags.
I don't mind spending a little extra money for any worthy cause though.
i've even bought bags of Purina Strategy horse food that were pink.
as big as the "pink" thing is getting, i'm wondering if it has transitioned into a not for profit designation instead of non-profit. the way they set up their organization determines how much they can pay their staff and if they can hire a CEO or not.
my concern is that, over time, a smaller and smaller percentage of the donated money is actually going to the cause. i sure hope it's not turning into a business.
Since 99.99% of all the ammo I shoot I reload myself I won't worry about it. Now if I could just reload .22 lr ammo I would be set but that stuff is cheap enough already.
As far as donating to a charity or a special cause I have found over the years that if you want to do it do it directly and eliminate the middle man. That way the charity gets the full 100% of what you give.
I just got back from my elk trip to Colorado and must say that I learned quite a bit about hiking in that one trip. I researched all I could on the internet and thought I was prepared going out. For the most part I was but I want to pass on a few major things I learned that helped me drastically!
1. Pack light. I know this may sound like common sense but believe me. After reading everyone's advice on what you need to pack, chances are your pack will end up weighing more...
