Meritorious Panel: State Of The Firearms Industry


Shooting Industry Editor Jade Moldae joined Staccato 2011 SVP Buck Pierson for a panel discussion on the state of the U.S. firearms industry moderated by Meritorious Cofounder/CEO Katherine Kostreva. This panel was part of a Meritorious’ Second Annual Military Series: State of the Firearms Industry virtual event, held Sept. 28, 2022.

Meritorious is an all-in-one SaaS platform, making it easier for military-connected professionals, business owners and veteran-friendly organizations to find each other and collaborate while engaging transitioning veterans and military spouses. Meritorious also created Veterans, Guns & Cigars — a unique, adventure networking event that bridges executives who want a day out of the office, with transitioning special operators who are most relaxed outdoors. Upcoming dates/locations are Oct. 29 in Las Vegas; Nov. 11 in Mebane, N.C. and Feb. 4, 2023 in Perry, Fla. — rescheduled from Oct. 13, following Hurricane Ian’s impact on the region.
