Kimber Donates $50,000 to RMEF’s Conservation Mission

MISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation accepted a $50,000 donation from Kimber in response to strong sales of the Kimber Camp Guard 10.

“We appreciate and value the support of our partners at Kimber,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of Marketing. “This donation is evidence of both Kimber’s support of our conservation mission and of a quality firearm that is valued by hunters and recreational shooters alike.”

Designed in collaboration with RMEF for use in the backcountry, the Camp Guard 10 is comfortable to carry. As a 10 mm handgun it also combines sought-after personal defense features in what is widely considered the best semi-auto bear cartridge

Made of stainless steel and featuring a rosewood grip with a RMEF logo, Kimber set aside a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each handgun to benefit RMEF.

“We are proud to play a role in conservation and give back to our partners at RMEF,” said Ryan Busse, Kimber vice president of sales. “Kimber is a company of hunters and shooters, and of RMEF Members. We consider it an honor to provide the finest hunting and shooting gear to the people who are engaged in conservation and hunting.”

The Camp Guard 10 remains popular in the general market. RMEF also offered it to its life members and features it in its nationwide banquet program. It is one of RMEF’s more popular officially licensed products.
