Tucson Arizona - Leica Sport Optics, an innovator in precision optics, has signed on as an SCI Corporate Sponsor.

Speaking on behalf of Safari Club International, CEO Phil DeLone remarked, “SCI is proud to be associated with such an icon in the industry. Their dedication to their customers and their values dovetails perfectly with SCI’s ongoing mission to expand and preserve our hunting heritage.”
