Walk The Talk America (WTTA) and MKS Supply encourage the firearms industry to support mental health education and outreach programs

MKS Supply, the exclusive marketer and distributor for Barnaul Ammunition, Hi-Point Firearms, Inland Manufacturing and Full Forge Gear, continues to support the WTTA mission through financial contributions and by placing a self-assessment card in every Hi-Point shipped.

Walk The Talk America (WTTA), a non-profit organization designed to bridge the gap between the firearms industry and owners and the mental health industry, appreciates the continued support of its corporate sponsor, MKS Supply. MKS Supply is the exclusive marketer and distributor for Barnaul Ammunition and the well-known shooting brands Hi-Point Firearms, Inland Manufacturing and Full Forge Gear. Support the WTTA’s efforts by donating financial resources and placing a WTTA Self-Assessment Card in every new Hi-Point firearm you ship. This helps expose hundreds of thousands of firearms buyers to be aware of their mental health and take a free, anonymous assessment.

“We believe it is very important to support mental health awareness, not only in the gun community but in all communities. WTTA is the most focused organization to help achieve that goal and we are proud to partner with them in that mission,” said Charles Brown, President of MKS Supply.

As a proud corporate sponsor, MKS Supply ships all Hi-Point firearms with a WTTA Information Card. In addition, the company continues to make donations in support of WTTA’s charitable efforts, including a recent charity auction that included a Hi-Point C9 pistol, a Hi-Point .45 carbine, and a Full Forge Gear Double Gun Bag and Backpack.

“We are extremely honored by the commitment MKS Supply has made to the WTTA’s mission,” said Michael Sodini, WTTA Founder. “They were one of the first companies to start putting our self-assessment cards inside their product boxes. As the sales and marketing arm of Barnaul Ammunition, Hi-Point, Inland Manufacturing and Full Forge Gear, they have great reach and have done a great job helping us spread our important message.”

WTTA, the brainchild of Sodini, a firearms industry veteran, spearheaded a movement within the firearms industry to bridge the gap between mental health and responsible firearms ownership to reduce suicide by firearm and armed violence. Through educational shows, podcasts, and training programs, WTTA is paving the way to educate mental health professionals about gun culture and break negative stigmas around mental health for gun owners. Through its various programs and offerings, such as instructional brochures and slides for firearms instructors, cultural competency classes, and introductory courses at the intersection of guns and mental health, the WTTA is leading the conversation and opening doors in the firearms industry and the mental health industry. .
