The firearms community will see its first-ever award ceremony in January as brands and influencers go head to head in the Gundie Awards to see who comes out on top.
The awards will be presented on January 20, 2020, ahead of SHOT Show in Las Vegas. The ceremony aims to highlight top creators, influencers, and brands in an attempt to promote the gun community in a positive manner.
“With so much negativity in the community in recent months we created the Gundies to bring us together with friendly competition as well as a chance to highlight legacy creators along with up and coming talent,” Ben Stacy of Forge Relations said in a news release.
